Today we visit a local reindeer farm. Let’s go on a long reindeer safari in the snowy wilderness, together with local people living with reindeers and wearing traditional clothes. Memorable and authentic day.

Festive dinner. There will be a rich buffet table full of Lapland delicacies in your hotel. After the dinner we will be transported to the wilderness and up the arctic hill for watching the Northern Lights and celebrating the New Year. Hopefully we have some luck and we could witness this northern phenomenon. We also experience some old Finnish shamanism and see our future in a piece of tin 🙂 There will be fireworks at midnight, champagne. This is a New Year of a life time ! (To see Northern Lights you need luck)
