Your Destinations

Helsinki 
Helsinki, known as the Daughter of the Baltic, has a laid-back, small town pace while retaining the attractions and atmosphere of a big city. Next to the sea, the shore is an enticing tangle of shops, villages, bays and inlets. The water seems to braid naturally with the cityscape. 

Visit the squares and cathedrals that make up the older aspects of this city, while remaining sure not to miss out on the legendary contemporary design scene. The city's gourmet side is also flourishing, with new gastro eateries offering locally sourced tasting menus popping up at dizzying speed. Discover this city's quirky charm during your stay and fall in love with the style of life that so many have fallen in love with during their visits.
Rovaniemi
Discover Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland and the 'official' home of Santa Claus. This city in Northern Finland was almost totally destroyed during WWII but today stands as a modern marvel and home to Arktikum, a famous museum and science centre featuring exhibits on the Arctic region and the history of Finish Lapland.

Our guide will meet you at the meeting point and after receiving  proper clothing for the trip, head by car to the forest area close to Rovaniemi Centre. Our experienced guide leads us to the world of berries and mushrooms; depending of the season you will be picking cloudberries, blueberries, lingonberries, or cranberries. After picking this Lappish superfood it is time to relax and have a well-earned break by an open fire and prepare traditional pancakes. Before heading back to city, you will try your luck in fishing while enjoying the silence of nature.

Duration 3 - 5 hours

Floating Under the Northern Sky (September only - Tuesdays and Thursdays)
This unique evening experience gives you the chance to search for the Northern lights while floating in a dry suit in a private lake 30 minutes drive from Rovaniemi. Dry floating suits are worn over your clothing and cover you from head to toe keeping you completely dry and warm as you take turns to float in the still, peaceful water under the moonlight.

Duration 2.5 hours

Midnight Sun Experience (June - July - 21:00 - 24:00 Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays)
Your evening begins with a restful cruise on a traditional long and open riverboat along River Kemijoki, which is surrounded by beautiful summer scenery. A local-style evening meal will be prepared by your guide in the middle of nature. Before midnight, you’ll be driven to the top of Ounasvaara Fell to admire the fascinating midnight sun and the tranquil nature. Then, raise a toast for the magical feeling of the white nights of Lapland with a glass of sparkling wine. You will be escorted back to your hotel after the program.

Duration 3 hours

Aurora Borealis Adventure ( September Only - Wednesdays and Fridays)
After stepping out of the car in the middle of nowhere, walk down to a river and admire the peaceful nature. You will reach the best spot to see the northern sky, but be patient - the aurora loves playing hide-and-seek and we never know if or when it will show up!
