What would you do if you wanted to experience an ultimate winter adventure? Well, of course, you would visit Santa's village and try husky and reindeer sleigh rides!
Join us for a Santa's village guided tour meet Santa and let loose on a husky and reindeer sleigh ride! This all happens at our unique Santa Village and Animal Safari tour.
Tour starts with a hotel pickup and a ride to Santa Claus Village. In the village, you can visit the Elves’ Post Office and send greetings to a friend using the official Arctic Circle stamp. The Elves’ Post Office is an official part of Finland's national post service, so your friends will indeed receive the letter from the Arctic Circle. After the visit to Posti, we will take you for a ceremonial Arctic Circle crossing. This is considered to be a special place, where there's no stress and no bad vibes, so the legends say that one who crosses the Arctic Circle will have a lifetime of joy. That's why you will get a certificate of crossing – as a reminder of this magical place.
We assume you have some things to say to the Santa Claus, so we're going to take you to the Santa's office to meet the man in red himself! Have your camera ready and take a selfie with Santa after you tell him your Christmas wishes. There will be plenty of time to check out other facilities, grab a coffee and to get a present from a gift shop before we head on to our next stop – reindeer sleigh ride!
Get ready for a short, but sweet 500m reindeer ride with a professional reindeer musher. Reindeer are quite busy year-round, helping Santa deliver all those gifts, and we will be lucky to catch them on their break from flying. Riding a reindeer sleigh in the middle of Arctic circle is an extraordinary experience, and we are thrilled to have you with us during this adventure.
After a 300m walk, the safari continues to the Huskey Park where you will have a chance to meet the dogs and see them playing in a snowy field. After a safety briefing, we will endeavor on our 2km long sleigh ride. Huskies love sleighs, and they love to run, so they will be happy to take you on a snowy ride through icy Lappish landscapes.If you want to experience the ultimate winter magic, then this Santa and Animal safari tour is just for you!
