We present to you the best selection of activities linked to the Northern Lights where you can see the phenomenon at its best: FINLAND, a parliamentary and democratic republic, a member of the United Nations since 1955, as well as the European Union since 1995. The Finnish economy is one of the most prosperous in Europe, based on important service sectors, as well as manufacturing sectors and has a highly democratic policy with extremely low levels of corruption.
Finland is becoming an important tourist destination in northern Europe. One of Finland's most demanded destinations is Lapland, with ice and snow in winter. It is well known Rovaniemi, the largest city in the area, rebuilt under the direction of Alvar Aalto after World War II, very close to the Arctic Circle. Nearby is the well-known Santa Claus´ House, the city's biggest attraction. And these are our goals on the journey we propose. Once in Lapland, we'll start our activities including a Huskies´ sled safari and touring part of the Arctic forests. Another safari with reindeer-drawn sleigh, a visit to Ranua's Arctic Zoo, and an afternoon on Europe´s longest Toboggan complete our adventure. In addition, you will have a free day to do the activities you prefer, snowshoeing, snowmobile, ice fishing, visit to the Arktikum museum, shopping in Rovaniemi, Finnish Sauna and much more.
Of course, every day we will have the opportunity to see the Northern Lights, the goal of our visit. Our guides will take us to places where we can see the aurora in all its splendor and explain this phenomenon very much on detail.
At the end of the trip of our dreams we will visit Helsinki, the capital of the country, where many cruises on the Baltic Sea arrive. This city includes Senate Square and the Suomenlinna Fortress.
After your international flight and local connection, arrive at Ivalo Airport, transfer to Star Arctic Hotel in Saariselka and time to relax or enjoy the hotel facilities. At night, around 08:00 p.m, a Northern Lights hunting will begin for 3 hours. The exact duration and routes may vary depending on the weather. The safari begins and ends at the hotel reception and includes outdoor thermal clothing and equipment, the visit of the Northern Lights observation sites by vehicle and many photo stops. A hot drink is also included. Return to the hotel for the night.
