SUNDAY Arrival Day  

Transfer from Rovaniemi Airport. Settle into your accommodation in a nice hotel in Rovaniemi city.



After breakfast you will be adviced to snowmobile safety and driving. On our first driving day we will drive across endless taiga forests already reaching Sodankylä – one of the biggest villages in Lapland. In the evening you have a chance to walk in this old village and meet local people there. Sodankyla is also famous for their observatory and the science of Northern Lights. Dinner buffet and overnight in a hotel.

After breakfast we begin our second day of driving, which brings us further north across huge natural swamps finally reaching Saariselka fells and reach the hotel where we will stay overnight. Saariselka is a part of Urho Kekkonen’s national park and is one of the best trekking areas in Europe. Buffet dinner and overnight stay in a nice hotel will be provided.



After breakfast we continue our great safari across the landscape, taking in the views of the fell, which leads us up to Inari lake. Inari is also called «Lapp sea». By old mythology it is told to be as deep as long. It is over 100 km long. Lunch in Inari. We cross the lake partly still heading north and reaching old Lapp village Kaamanen in the afternoon. Dinner and overnight stay in a lodge or cottages will be provided. Good place for meeting local Lapps.

Today we continue our safari soon reaching the treeless tundra region. At this stage of the journey we are very north of Lapland that there are no proper trees left. This magical area is maybe the most important reindeer herding area in Finland. We finally reach the village of Nuorgam in the afternoon. Nuorgam is the most northern village in European Union. You will have an opportunity to experience a Finnish sauna and have your dinner in the holiday village. Overnight stay in the cottages. This is a great place for admiring the Northern Lights. Nuorgam is situated on the shore of river Tana – It is the best salmon river in Europe, situated on the border of Finland and Norway.
