This program is a perfect alternative for those who wish to see the arctic animals without spending extensive amounts of time outdoors, in the snow and frost. Your day will start with our guide picking you up from your accommodation in Rovaniemi.
You will be driven to the farm, where local reindeer herders will tell you more about the herding lifestyle and how it is to be a reindeer herder in the 21st century. After insightful instructions given by the herders, you will be able to drive your own reindeer sledge in a brief, 500m long ride. Your newly learned skills will be rewarded with a Reindeer Sledge Driver’s License!
Also, you will meet the huskies and will be accompanied by the husky mushers, who will tell you more about living and working together with the happy and energetic husky dogs. You will have free time to interact with the friendly dogs. Moreover, the mushers will happily take you on a brief, yet extremely thrilling, husky sledge ride.
Throughout the program, the guide will be by your side to assist you with every step of the activity and make sure you are enjoying yourself fully.
You will have also free time to meet Santa Claus and step across the magical Arctic Circle at the Santa Claus Village.
There are many souvenir shops as well as Santa’s main post office, service companies and cafes and restaurants in the Santa Claus Village. And of course, Santa is there as well, in his chamber every day of the year. You can pay him a visit!
Your day will conclude with your guide driving you back to your accommodation in Rovaniemi.
