Huskies, reindeer and Santa Claus – a dream come true for all Lapland visitors. 

We start by visiting a reindeer farm, where you will get to feed the reindeer and hear stories about reindeer herding while having coffee. Our journey continues to Santa Claus Village on the Arctic Circle. There are many sights and attractions in the village, like Santa's Post Office where you can send a postcard greeting home. Santa Claus has his office in the village and you can visit him at any me while we are there. We round off the visit of the village with lunch in a local restaurant.

The huskies are known as arctic runners and they for sure love to run! The best running temperature is -20C, which we often have in the winter. We will visit the farm where you mostly likely find puppies who love to have a cuddle! We go for a hike with the young huskies, they get to run, but do not need to pull a sledge and risk getting over-heated. This beautiful nature experience ends you arctic journey today.
