Your Destinations

Helsinki is an eclectic mix of East and West, set on a peninsula in the Gulf of Finland.  A neo-classical gem with an art nouveau quarter, laced with Alvar Aalto's spectacular modern architecture. Discover smart pavement cafés on Esplanade, gourmet restaurants at a fraction of London prices, and concerts and ballet at Finlandia Hall.
Rovaniemi is the capital of Lapland, in northern Finland, known for being the "official" home town of Santa Claus, and for viewing the Northern Lights.

Lapland offers a huge variety of activities during the winter. Besides the traditional cross country and downhill skiing there are exciting snowmobile, dog sled and reindeer safaris.

You can take a reindeer ride and attend a special Lapp ceremony of crossing the Arctic Circle. In the afternoon the trip continues by car to Santa Claus Village with time to do shopping in Santa Claus’s Village.

Aurora Borealis Adventure
After stepping out of the car in the middle of nowhere, we walk down to a river experiencing the surrounding sleeping nature. We reach the best spot to please our eyes, but be patient the aurora loves playing hide-and-seek; we never know when they can show up! While observing nature’s own theatrical performance we fry sausages surrounded by the great aroma of the fire. Before returning to civilization, we drop by a cosy old building “Poro-Pekan Pirtti”. The hosts warmly welcome us and show us their dwelling, which takes us into the past. This relaxing escape will definitely satisfy all our senses.
