An arctic day of snowmobiling and reindeer sleigh riding completed with meeting Santa
Our family favourite safari combines nature, culture, and the warm spirit of Christmas. The day starts with a snowmobile safari to a reindeer farm filled with Lappish culture. You’ll get to take a reindeer sleigh ride and attend a special ceremony of crossing the Arctic Circle. In the afternoon, the trip continues by car to the Santa Claus Village – an ideal spot for a little Christmas shopping. You will also have an opportunity to send postcards from Santa’s post office. During the day, you get to meet Santa Claus himself and enjoy a delicious lunch in a cosy restaurant. And to top it all off, you will receive a Diploma for crossing the Arctic Circle!
