Driving a team of huskies over the white, shimmering fells is an experience that is almost mandatory during a trip to Lapland. The husky safari starts just a short drive away from the resort and takes you on a fast-paced trip over the untouched snow of the fells and surrounding forests. This is an experience that you will never forget!
Note: We have two-person sleighs and the ride is approximately 30 minutes, covering around 5 kms. Each sleigh is ridden by one of the guests. However, during early winter and when there’s little snow, seats will be available in sleigh ridden by the guide, instead.
This evening, take a seat in the cozy Aurora sleigh and get ready to be amazed! Guided by an expert, the sleigh glides through the snowy landscape, far from any light pollution. Once you reach the destination, prepare your cameras to capture stunning photos of the magical northern night sky, if they grace us with their presences. You wait for the Northern Lights to appear in comfort by the fire, enjoying hot drinks and listening to tales until someone spots the first flare.

As you enjoy creating delicious cookies, the Elves will lead you to meet Santa's magnificent reindeer, followed by a short ride through the forest.
Next, it's time to embark on a quest to discover Santa's hidden cabin. If you're able to locate the cabin, you'll be warmly welcomed by Santa himself, who will invite your family for an intimate conversation and present a symbolic gift for both the children and the adults.
