Your Lapland experience will begin directly from Rovaniemi airport, where your truly special transfer awaits.

The most traditional and peaceful way to move through the silent Lappish nature. Sit back and relax while we take you through the wintery forest on a 45 minute magical reindeer safari, taking in the beauty of the brilliant white snow and breath-taking landscape that surrounds you. The journey will take you to a local reindeer farm, where you will meet real reindeer herders, who will tell you about their way of life hand in hand with nature. While you’re enjoying this amazing experience, your luggage will be brought straight to your Igloo.
Crossing the magical line of the Arctic Circle will be a memorable experience as you will take part in a genuine Arctic Circle Crossing Ceremony performed by a shaman. After your visit to the reindeer farm you will be brought to the tranquillity of a private glass igloo, close to the Arctic Circle.
