Tour 1: Meet Reindeer & Huskies and visit Santa Claus Village, 4hrs
On this tour, you meet the two most iconic animals of Lapland! First, the reindeer herders tell you about the reindeer’s year, while you can feed them with their favourite snacks.
After photo moments with reindeer, we take a short walk through the forest to meet our furry friends – huskies! The dogs will welcome you by barking and wagging tales! The musher will be happy to tell you about these super athletes of the animal world and their life in the Arctic. After all, you can sit by the fire to enjoy hot drinks and stories about living in Lapland.
We finish the day with a visit to Santa Claus Village, where you meet Santa Claus himself. You will also have time for shopping and a visit to Santa Claus Main Post Office.
Trip 2: Apukka Gold Rush, 2hrs
Travel back in time to the days of traditional mining and try the simple yet rewarding technique of gold panning. Using a gold pan and some water, you can wash the gravel and look for gold!
During this tour, your guide will give you a full demonstration of the traditional way of mining using authentic pieces of equipment.
As we learn about the history and legends of the Lapland Gold Rush and visit a gold prospector’s cabin, our guide will also teach you the proper technique of panning for gold.
Can you find your share of Lapland gold? All the gold you find is yours to keep as a memory in a tiny glass bottle.
