Sample the capital of Lapland, Rovaniemi in this 6-7-hour tour around the Arctic Circle border.
Experience, feel, taste, and smell this whole day tour by beginning the day with an invigorating breath of fresh morning air in the arctic forest about 25 minutes driving away from the city. The hiking trail may provide opportunities to see its local animal residents such as moose, reindeer, fox, hare, and various birds if we’re quiet, respectful, and observant enough. After tiptoeing through nature, we will start a fire to have our Lappish picnic with some yummy smoked salmon.
Don’t worry if you don’t see any big animals during the morning forest because our next visit will be to Lapland’s VIP animal friends, the reindeer and huskies.
Get excited to meet the legend himself at Santa Claus Village. The arctic circle border line is also there, and upon crossing it will you receive your Arctic Circle Certificate. Make sure to stop by Santa’s Post Office which provides a one-of-a-kind special Christmas delivery service with an official Christmas stamp.
