After an intense day in direct contact with the most extreme nature, the experience in Lapland can continue with relaxation in a sauna and the opportunity to enjoy the best gastronomy in a pleasant atmosphere that can only be found in the Arctic Circle. Lapland is a corner of the world where nature and civilization take on a different meaning than what we are accustomed to. It is a recommended destination for families with children of all ages, as well as for discerning visitors, intrepid adventurers, sports enthusiasts, and nature lovers.

Day 2. Kuusamo. Snowmobile Safari, Spa, and Angry Birds

Buffet breakfast at the hotel. Before starting our activities, we will collect the thermal suits that we can use throughout our stay in Lapland.

We will be provided with helmets and gloves, and after receiving instructions from the guides, we will start our snowmobile ride. The adults will drive the snowmobiles (2 persons per snowmobile), and the children will ride in a sled pulled by the guide's snowmobile. During the journey, we will feel the power of these machines and enjoy the snowy forests and frozen lakes. We will return to the nearby Rukan Salonki resort to enjoy the snow. In the resort, you have access to an illuminated sled slide where you can slide down and use free floaters. On the frozen lake, you can try the Finnish carousel, where one person sits while the other spins it, and you can also use "kick-sledges," the most traditional and authentic means of transportation, similar to a sled. Light lunch at the resort's restaurant. In the afternoon, you will have free time, during which we recommend enjoying the hotel's spa pool, an area decorated with exotic plants, a tropical oasis. Both adults and children can enter (guests staying in a villa/apartment have one entry, and guests staying in a room have unlimited access).

In his house, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be waiting for us, and we will have the opportunity to bake cookies and create Christmas decorations together. They will tell us about life in Lapland. Each family will have some time to chat with Santa, take photos, and create lasting memories. Each child (under 11 years old) will receive a gift from this beloved character. With the unforgettable memory of this visit, we say goodbye to Santa Claus and return to our accommodation. Return and light lunch at a restaurant.

Once back at the camp, we can enjoy a comforting hot drink in a cozy kota. Light lunch during the excursion. Traveling through beautiful forests and across frozen lakes, we will arrive at a traditional reindeer farm.

Children who are unable to drive the karts can ride a mini snowmobile, an experience that you will undoubtedly never forget. Prices are valid for bookings made up to 30 days before departure, subject to availability. A minimum of 10 people is required to carry out the excursion. Adult price: $90 // Children price (5-11 years): $60.

Day 5. Ruka. Ice Fishing, Kota Lunch, and Snowshoeing

Buffet breakfast at the hotel. We will make our way to the shore of Lake Veskajärvi, where we will meet the fishing guide at the laavu, a shelter they have on the shore. First, we will receive instructions on how to use the small fishing rods and bait, as well as the "kaira," which is the drill used to make holes in the ice. Then it's our turn to find the best spot and try our luck on the ice. The lake is home to perch and pike, both natural inhabitants. In the laavu, we can enjoy a hot drink around a campfire to warm up. We will have a light lunch in a Lappish kota, which are typical shelters of the Sami (Lapland's indigenous people), similar in shape to teepees or Native American tents. After lunch, we will continue with an activity that is enjoyed by both young and old: we will put on snowshoes and head into the snowy forest. The guide will provide information about the nature and seasons in this area. The nature that we now see hibernating becomes a completely different world a few months later when it blooms under the midnight sun.
