After touching down in Lapland's capital, you'll be kitted out with all your snow clothes. Then, Santa's elves will take you to your accommodation and you'll have the rest of the day to explore. Head to the city centre to browse the shops and grab a bite to eat, or just relax at your hotel.
Get an action-packed overview of what Rovaniemi has to offer. Try your hand at snowmobiling and enjoy short husky and reindeer sleigh rides in our taster sessions. Plus, one of Santa's elves will share a traditional Lappish tale as you warm up by the fire with a hot berry juice.
Today is yours to spend how you like. Take it easy at your hotel, get to know more of the city, or relive your favourite taster from the previous day by booking a longer snowmobile or husky excursion. You can also sign up for a reindeer safari or visit Lapland's Arctic Wildlife Park.
Rovaniemi's Santa Park is where Santa and his elves spend their days making toys and getting ready for Christmas. The huge underground grotto is made up of fairy-lit walkways, colourful workshops and festive shopping stalls, so there's a lot to explore.

Our first impression was not too positive. As a group, we had to carry our luggages for quite a distance from the entrance, which was not easy as luggages do not roll well on thick ice. Was wondering why the hotel did not extend any help. This was tough for the older members of the group.There were no basic tissue paper and inadequate toilet roll in some of our rooms upon check in. The accommodation and facilities were average. Definitely not recommended for groups of more than 10. More
Stayed here with a group for three days, 'away from it all'. It is a great place to see the Northern Lights as you are in a forest and away from light pollution. We saw a spectacular display on our first night. The hotel is very comfortable and the food is very good. The staff are most helpful and help you to to book excursions. We took a 'Husky Safari' and it was exhilarating, (expensive but worth it). The Lappish people are in tune with nature and their environment and are enthusiastic to share their knowledge. (A visit to the Arktikum in Rovaniemi is a must). If you want something interesting, different and unforgettable then this is a great place to stay. More
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in December 2016. On arrival there was a bit of a queue for the reception and some people did have to wait a little while for their rooms but luckily ours were ready. There is no lift but you only have to go up one flight of stairs as there are only 2 floors. The rooms are very basic but you don't spend much time in them so it doesn't really matter. The food is ok nothing special but edible, only about 2 choices a night but I never went hungry, the dining area is communal so you have to sit with other families, however if everyone turns up at once there isn't enough room so a few times we ended up eating in the reception area which again wasn't really a problem. It is a cosy little hotel, ideal for the setting, there is entertainment for the kids at night, we only went once as our son was so tired from the day we didn't make it. Take snacks with you as there is nowhere to buy anything like that, they do serve lunch and it is not too expensive. The outside is what you go for it is beautiful, we spent most free time sledging down the hills which gave us hours of fun, all the taster sessions are at the hotel so no travelling for those. The Santa park and airport are only 30 minutes away and huskies only 5 minutes away so it is perfect place if you don't fancy getting up early to travel to things. Don't take too many clothes with you the kit they give you is fine and does the job, it wasn't too cold when we went (-10) so just wore our normal coats to Santa park and it was fine, no need for dressing up clothes just some legging and jumper for underneath the suit. The finale meal was ok, everyone just wants to see Santa and you go outside and he arrives on the sleigh, it does take a while for everyone to see him and our son nearly had to miss it as he was so tired and it could have gone on until 11pm but he saw him about 9 so not too bad. All in all it was magical and I would definitely go back againMore

Amazing, winter wonderland
We travelled here for christmas with 3 adults and 2 children age 6 and 7. We stayed in a lodge which was beautiful. The scenery is amazing. The lodges are set around a frozen lake with the most gorgeous setting perfect for a white christmas. The lodge had everything we needed, the first thing we noticed was how warm it was. Infact it was so warm with underfloor heating , we had to turn the heating right down. There was a bedroom downstairs with 2 single beds and an upstairs mezinine level with 3 single beds. There was also a double sofa bed in the lounge area. The lodge had our own sauna which was lovely. We travelled with Thompsons and booked the 4 night classic lapland package. The taster sessions were good, we then chose to book up for the husky excursion and the reindeer excursion. They were both amazing but the husky one was more thrilling with my husband getting to drive the sleigh while i sat in the sleigh with 2 kids. The scenery again was gorgeous. The price was expensive at around â¬1000 for the two but we thoroughly enjoyed them and it was a once in a lifetime experience. The trip to santa park/village was so rushed we actually wished we hadn't bothered going. We had read reviews about this and was going to get a taxi back but due to the fact it was xmas eve , which is like xmas day in lapland we were worried we wouldn't get one back. The santa park is lovely but we didn't get to do half of the activities we wanted to, we had just under 1 hour there, it takes about 10 minutes to walk down into the cavern, so we were really disappointed with this. The food in the hotel was very nice. The buffet was quite small but the food was very nice. Every evening we had to share a table with other families as most of tables are set up for around 10 people, this didn't really bother us. The gala dinner was well organised , very relaxed most people wearing either christmas jumpers or a sparkly jumper nothing too dressy. The christmas dinner was ok. The best part was at 8pm the reps asked us to go outside, they set off fireworks and santa claus came up the hotel drive being pulled in sleigh by reindeer. It was magical. Santa then seen every family individually and spent a good 10 minutes with us. He knew our kids names when we went in which amazed the kids. The elfs filmed the whole meeting with our ipads for us. Over all the trip was very expensive which we said we would only do once, but as soon as we got back we were looking to go again. It was amazing, the kids loved it and the adults even more so. We can't wait to go back. Definately worth paying the extra for a lodge it was perfect and take plenty snacks/ drinks in your suitcase.More
