Your professional guide will determine where the highest possible chance for aurora sightings is. You will visit a few different locations unless your guide knows for sure that northern lights will appear on a certain location, then you’ll go there.

Santa-claus-reindeerExperience the enchanting Christmas atmosphere with your whole family! Just a bus ride away, we find a hidden place in the woods outside of town, where a Reindeer Herder, the Forest Queen, and Santa Claus reside. Santa has his own secret little wooden house, and the Forest Queen warmly welcomes us upon arrival. She leads us down a candlelit path, inviting us on a fairy journey to a magical Christmas place. Throughout the day, we complete Christmassy tasks assigned by the Forest Queen. We find Santa’s secret house, decorate gingerbread cookies, enjoy a reindeer sleigh ride, write our deepest wishes, and savor traditional Lappish Christmas porridge. In between the adventures, we engage in snow-filled fun with tobogganing, kick sledding, and mini-snowmobile rides. After creating cherished memories, we return to the city with hearts full of joy and wonderful experiences. The duration of the tour is about 4 hours.
