Day 1  : ARRIVAL TO ROVANIEMI

Welcome to Finland – the Land of a Thousand Lakes!

Arrival to Rovaniemi, the capital of the Finnish Lapland. Lapland is as close as reality gets to those who dream of a winter wonderland. Contrasts are a key factor in the allure of Lapland where 24-hour sunlight in the summer replaces the dark winter days. The hustle and bustle of towns; and ski resorts is just minutes away from the peace and quiet of the wild wilderness.

Transfer to the hotel on your own (Private transfer can be pre-booked in advance). Dinner under own arrangements (dinner can be pre-booked in advance)

Overnight at Scandic Rovaniemi/Pohjanhovi hotel or similar
