Scandic Pohjanhovi
Christmas in Rovaniemi, Lapland
This unforgettable journey for young and old takes you beyond the Arctic Circle to Finnish Lapland. The northern lights will be dancing over Santa’s hometown as you create a lifetime of Christmas memories.

Day 1 (23 Dec): Be warmly welcomed by your Christmas hosts on arrival at Rovaniemi’s airport or railway station. At your hotel, children will receive a special passport to be stamped as you enjoy activities over the next few days. Remainder of the day is at leisure.

Day 2 (24 Dec): Today experience a real white Christmas full of fun at the fabulous Snowfun park. Choose from a myriad of thrilling activities including a snowmobile safari, a forest tour by four-wheeled scooter, tobogganing, kicksledding or skiing. Ice-fishing, ice-golf and snow-hockey are also on the agenda for the adventurous, but you may prefer to just relax by the campfire with a hot drink, or even fry sausages and sip hot soup in a Sami-style tent. This evening you will be served a traditional Christmas dinner that has been prepared for you. Santa is sure to take some time out from his busy schedule to meet all the children after your meal!

Day 3 (25 Dec): This morning, you may choose to sleep off last night’s feast or attend a traditional Lutheran Christmas Day church service delivered in Finnish. Later, travel deep into the majestic forest for a fun-filled day with a distinct focus on the festive season. Glimpse shy forest animals as your coach heads for a quaint lodge where you can enjoy Christmas snacks and decorate a tree with Santa’s Helpers, then have loads of fun gaining your International Reindeer Driver’s Licence! Follow the winding trail back to your hotel for a traditional Christmas dinner.

Day 4 (26 Dec): Today, learn more about the fascinating history, culture and traditions of the Arctic regions at the Arktikum, an internationally-renowned museum and science centre. Journey on to Santa Claus' Village, where you can shop for traditional handicrafts and send a postcard home from Santa’s very own post office! Enjoy lunch in a cosy restaurant, before returning to your hotel.

Day 5 (27 Dec): Your extraordinary Christmas experience sadly comes to an end after breakfast, when you will be transferred to the Rovaniemi airport or railway station.
