Tour Itinerary

DAY 1
FLY TO ROVANIEMI
FLY TO ROVANIEMI

Fly to the capital of Finnish Lapland, transfer to the Arctic Snow Hotel and check in for three nights in a glass igloo. You'll also spend a night in the Snow Hotel's Ice Rooms, which can be either your first or last night. For this itinerary, we recommend it as your final day.  Your flight arrives early so spend the afternoon into the forest before, stopping to warm up with a hot drink. Enjoy a welcome drink at the hotel's Ice Bar, in which everything, from the chairs and tables to the glass you drink from, is carved from blocks of ice. Tonight sit down for dinner at the hotel's main restaurant. (D)

ICE FISHING AND SNOW SHOE EXCURSION
Spend the morning participating in a fun Arctic activity which will be memorable for all ages. Transfer to a nearby frozen lake where you can try your hand at some ice fishing (duration 1-1.30hrs).
 
Spend the afternoon enjoying a snow shoe experience, heading through snowy landscapes and a picturesque snow covered forest — includes a hot drink and the opportunity to roast sausages by the fire (duration 2hrs). Afterwards, check-in for your first night in the glass-igloo where you’ll hopefully witness the greatest light show on earth - the Aurora Borealis. Don’t miss an opportunity with the Aurora alarm. A night watchperson searches the skies as you sleep, and will sound the quiet alarm , once any Aurora activity is detected. Dinner this evening is served in Restaurant Kota (B, D)

The hotel operates a shuttle-bus service to Rovaniemi (booked and paid for locally). A unique evening experience awaits in the form of a private snow sauna session - that’s right, a sauna made of snow where once fully steamed you will not be able to see your hands in front of your face. Also included in this experience is a traditional, Finnish sauna by the lake and an outdoor hot-tub under the stars - all for personal use (duration 90 mins). Dinner this evening is served in the Ice Restaurant (B,D)
