Engagements

Would you like to surprise your partner with a memorable wedding proposal they will cherish forever?

Perhaps you are already engaged and are looking for the perfect wedding venue to celebrate your wonderful day. 


We are very happy to help cater for all your needs in regards to a proposal or a wedding celebration.

For an intimate proposal during the winter surrounded by beautiful Lappish nature with trees sugar coated in snow, why not select a Private Husky Safari. The tour can be customized for your needs but is very similar to the Private Husky Safari for Families. You and your partner have the opportunity to drive your own husky team through the magical Lappish taiga forests and (weather conditions permitting) onto the frozen lake. Whether under the twilight sky of mid-December or the crisp blue skies of February this is truly a romantic setting for the proposal. 
 The guide can recommend beautiful locations for the proposal, or you may stop where you like to complete the romantic gesture.
Would you like to have timeless memories of your magical moment together? We can help with arranging a professional photographer to capture those precious moments so you could share them with your family back home.
For when you are relaxing around the cosy campfire, why not take up the optional extra of some delicious hand crafted chocolates from local Choco Deli. Many of their unique ingredients used are locally sourced for sustainability and to ensure they have the greatest tastes and quality. You could also try another local delight; Sparkling Spruce Sprout, a festive drink for special occasions.


 

During the winter months a truly romantic experience and a magical choice for a proposal option would be a Northern Lights Flight. You can choose to have a completely private experience or join others on the small Piper PA 31 aircraft. You will be met by your guide who will take you to a private hangar located next to the airport. From here you are whisked up into the starry night sky to experience one of the natural wonders of the world. The Northern Lights can be dancing in the background while you make a magical proposal to your loved one. 

To complete the experience for you let us help arrange extras such as; a bouquet of flowers, or hand crafted chocolates from local Choco Deli, or even a bottle of something sparkling to celebrate the wonderful occasion. 

Please note that although the Northern Lights can be seen very often, they are a natural phenomena therefore we cannot guarantee they will be visible.

Rovaniemi is the home of Santa Claus himself, so why don’t you make the proposal truly unique and yet very private with a meeting with Santa Claus. This amazing man with years of making dreams come true will help you create the most romantic and memorable experience for you and your partner. To truly show your partner how much you love them, you can share your feelings with us and we can pass them on to Santa Claus. All the wonderful things about your partner and your amazing relationship together; things that make you smile, laugh, or cry together. Moments that only your partner would know of, such as a wonderful holiday you had together. We are sure when you see your partner’s face light up with happiness and surprise it will be a priceless moment that you both cherish forever. It can also be arranged that Santa Claus could deliver the wedding ring to you both or you can bring the ring to the room yourself for the very special proposal. Whichever you choose, this will be a truly romantic gesture and one you will never forget. Follow this link for further information.

Rovaniemi also offers beautiful experiences during the summer and autumn seasons, with these months providing an amazing backdrop for a proposal to your loved one. Glorious arctic summers with the magical experience of the midnight sun, or beautiful autumn days with leaves changing to magnificent shades of red and orange.
How about enjoying the warm midnight sun on top of one of the local fells? With the glow of the campfire and the midnight sun burning crimson shades across the arctic landscape, it is truly a romantic spot to propose to your loved one. The guide will provide you with delicious snacks to enjoy and you could add some extra chocolates or a bottle of something sparkling to add a special touch for that perfect moment.

How about selecting your own background for the engagement proposal? 

On a Wilderness Photography Expedition you spend the day hiking through the beautiful Lappish nature, with many opportunities to propose to your loved one along the way. You can choose to have the glorious orange and red colours of the autumn leaves or the warm glow of a campfire to accompany you. You may wish to wait until you are on top of a fell surrounded by breathtaking views, or amongst the vibrant and colourful forest. Wherever you choose, it is guaranteed to be a truly amazing experience for you and your loved on.
