Description - What to expect

Lapland Experience Itinerary

◾ Day 1: Sinettä, Svanstein and "Aurora Nest"
Start your Lapland experience with a hustle-free pick-up and embark on a 2-day trip full of wilderness experiences. First, drive to a traditional reindeer farm in Sinettä. Meet these majestic animals and ride a reindeer-pulled sled. Then, head to Svanstein (or Pello), a premier skiing location for downhill skiing to try your skiing skills and have a barbecue lunch. Afterward, head to a picturesque lakeside cabin for some well-deserved relaxation and time in the lakeside sauna. Spend the night in the Aurora Nest with a see-through roof, for the ultimate night aurora experience.

Day 2: Ice fishing experience and Snow hotel
Start your day by going ice-fishing on the lake. Your professional guide will teach you how to use the ice fishing drill and rod. Your host will cook anything you catch, and also provide moose meat and other ingredients for you to prepare a meal in the lakeside cabin. Your final stop, before you drive back to Rovaniemi, will be the Arctic Snow Hotel in Sinettä, built anew every year, with an ice bar, ice sculptures, and even an ice chapel.
