The best family activity that keeps you excited the whole day and gives you a balance between a guided tour, good food and exploring Santa Claus Village on your own!

You will start the morning on snowmobiles and you will be arriving at the local reindeer farm on snowmobiles. Once there, take the reins and experience a short reindeer sleigh ride. The Lappish ceremony will give you goosebumps and you will be awarded a reindeer driving license! After that, it is time to jump on the snowmobiles again and explore the forest tracks around the Arctic Circle. As morning turns to afternoon, you will enjoy a guided tour of Santa Claus Village to get all the best secrets and your personal Arctic Circle Crossing certificate, followed by a delicious lunch. After lunch, it’s time to explore the village on our own, buy souvenirs, send postcards from Santa’s post or visit the big man himself, Santa.

Duration of the program is 6 hours including preparations. The riding time on snowmobiles is approximately 1 hour and 30 – 40 minutes. The average speed during our short tours is limited due to the safety and traffic regulations. Two adults ride on one snowmobile, single riding supplement for an extra charge. Children are traveling in the sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile.
