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.

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

Wow Wow Wow what a place
I just loved the Bear's Lodge. I had one of the Holiday Apartments. Could have slept a big family. It was so comfortable. The beds were great. Loved the fireplace, sauna, and mini kitchen. What a view I had of the little lake right out the back of my place. The main building was also most comfortable and the people friendly. Great little lobby bar. All around a place I would go back to. Thank YouMore
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
