icon Day 1 : Helsinki

Location: Helsinki

Accommodation: Night Train

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

In the Finnish capital, the snow will cover the entire city in a pure white atmosphere, and create a Christmas feeling through the Christmas decorations of Aleksanterinkatu. Our first stop will be Helsinki´s cathedral, the most famous white cathedral in Northern Europe. Shortly after we will visit Uspenski Cathedral, on our way to Tuomaan Markkinat (St. Thomas Christmas Market). Feel the true Scandinavian Christmas atmosphere in this lively street market. For lunch, we will enjoy the local seafood lunch, before we visit the Marimekko Factory - one of the most renowned Finnish designers. We will continue to the Sibelius Monument. The Sibelius Park is a park erected to honor Jean Sibelius, a remarkable Finnish composer. For dinner, we will have something not so conventional but certainly tasty: Arctic Seafood Sushi. Once we are ready, we will begin our trip to Rovaniemi in Santa´s comfortable night train, equipped with double rooms.

icon Day 2 : Visit Santa Claus

Location: Rovaniemi

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Rovaniemi is the first stop in the Arctic Circle! The area is mysterious and beautiful. In addition to the world's only Santa Claus, there is a magical summer midnight sun and a stunning winter aurora borealis! Santa Claus Village is probably the most exciting place in the world. Santa Claus will listen carefully to your wishes. Are you ready to meet Santa? During your visit to Santa´s Post Office, you can purchase a variety of Christmas cards. Cross the Arctic Circle and get a Certificate. After meeting Santa, we will visit a snow castle, experience the amazing architecture and ice sculptures and have fun with the high speed sledding in the snow toboggans. Afterwards, we will try a reindeer meat meal, before we go to a Sámi reindeer farm hidden in the forest. In the farm we will have the chance of joining the reindeers in an exciting sleigh ride! After all the adrenaline, we will relax while fishing quietly on a silent frozen lake. We will prepare a campfire and a barbecue where we will be able to grill what we fish and (for those without luck) a salmon dinner. Once we are full, we will release all the stress in a traditional Finnish sauna and our amazing Aurora Nest! A small mobile house pulled by snowmobiles, in which you will have a chance to see the Northern lights!

icon Day 3 : The arctic

Location: Rovaniemi

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

On the third day of our memorable trip, we will start with a snowmobiling experience. We will spend the morning crossing wild forests at full speed. At lunchtime, we will go to a restaurant to enjoy a buffet that will provide us with the necessary energy that we'll need in order to enjoy some cross country Ski. At dinner, we will surprise you with a private arctic dinner, before we give you a ride in our Aurora Nest to maximise the chances of seeing the Northern lights!

icon Day 4 : Icebreaker

Location: Kalix

Join us on board the White Icebreaker! Enjoy the spectacular scenery, experience walking on the ice sea and learn how to wear the floating suits. Take a dip in the icy ocean, but stay dry and warm in your survival suit. You will have the chance to try the traditional Swedish lunch and the traditional arctic duck dinner, before we take you on a plane, and we set off in search of Northern lights! For the night, we will take you to a double room in an extraordinary 4-star spa hotel.

icon Day 5 : Amethyst mine

Location: Saariselkä

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we will take you to a 2000 million years old amethyst mine on top of the Lampivaara Hill, where the owner will tell you the story of the mine and describe the process of mining. After the introduction, you will dig up amethysts for yourself and, if they fit in your enclosed fit, you will have the chance of keeping them as a memory. After a tasty lunch, we will take you to the town of Saariselkä, surrounded by nature. There you will go on an exciting 10 km husky adventure on a sleigh pulled by a team of friendly huskies. For dinner, we will try the local reindeer meat pizza, and once we have recovered our energies, we will climb on top of Saariselkä's hill, so we have the best perspective of the Northern lights. After this fantastic show, we will rest in a nice 4-star spa hotel.

icon Day 6 : King crab

Location: Kirkenes

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The Norwegian Arctic Circle is a perfect place for fishing king crabs all year round. Because of the extreme cold, the King Crab is particularly fertile. The fishermen along the shore will explain the history of the King Crab in the Norwegian Arctic Circle and how to cook it. They will take you sailing around an astonishing fjord and, after the fishing, you will have the option of bringing your King Crabs back to the camp for cooking. We will also visit the beautiful town of Kirkenes, where we will enjoy a tasty seafood dinner, and rest in a comfortable 4-stars hotel.

icon Day 7 : The end

Location: Helsinki

Next morning, we will take a direct flight to Oslo. We will spend the day visiting this capital and its vibrant story. We will tour around the city and make an important stop at the Viking Museum.
