Rovaniemi is a Heart of Finnish Lapland

The city of Rovaniemi is the capital of the Finnish Lapland, located in the northern portion of the country. The region is renowned for its spectacular views of the Lapland Northern Lights and picturesque Arctic landscapes. For children and adults who are still kids at heart, one of the main drawing points of this region is that it is known as the official hometown of Santa Claus. This three-day tour takes you through all the highlights of this Arctic locale, complete with an exciting dog sled ride.

The tour begins when you arrive in Rovaniemi at noon. After you’ll transfer to the  Scandic Rovaniemi Hotel, a relaxed lodging establishment right in the heart of the city. Once you have settled in, at 1:00 pm a car will take you out into the husky ranch. Your instructor will teach you how to drive dog sleds. After the lesson, you and your fellow tour travelers will have a chance to drive the dog teams yourselves. At the end of the ride, you’ll return to the ranch.
