The sauna bathing experience is an astonishing combination of thick steam within intimate snow walls. Then jump into the outdoor Jacuzzi and admire the Northern Lights or the  spectacular starry night skies of Lapland.

Day 2  : Sinettä - Santa Claus Village - Rovaniemi

Departing late in the morning for the next step on the winter adventure. Heading towards Rovaniemi, you stop on the banks of the Kemi-joki river to enjoy today's included activity, one of the most idyllic Husky Safaris of the region. 

HUSKY FARM & SAFARI INCLUDED / DURATION: 2:00-2:30 HOURS 2 persons per sledge
The barking of enthusiastic dogs will welcome you to the most genuine Husky farm in Rovaniemi. The head musher will talk about the life and training of these Arctic animals and you will also have the chance to take some great photos. After brief instructions and riding in pairs, you embark on a run through the forest behind your pack of huskies. After the trip there is time to visit the farm and enjoy a traditional outdoor lunch of Lappish sausage grilled on the campfire followed by Lappish pancakes.

The day continues with a visit to the world famous Santa Claus Village, built right on the Arctic Circle and home to Santa Claus. Stop by his busy post office where you can ask Santa to send a letter to your loved ones just before Christmas. Take a step into the magical world of Santa’s home and meet Santa himself. No words can describe the feelings provoked during this moment from a fairy-tale. It is something you will always remember.
