Wrap up in winter layers and enjoy an evening pickup from your Rovaniemi hotel or travel independently to the central meeting point.
Board your comfortable minivan or coach and head into the snow-covered countryside on the fringes of the Arctic Circle.
Travel into the wooded fells and arrive at a mystery location — an outdoor party venue festooned with fairy lights and filled with stalls, bars and other snow-themed attractions.
Hop out of your coach and enjoy the entertainments as you wish. Savor a complimentary welcome drink, have a dance at the snow disco, and perhaps visit a fortune-teller and other traditional Lapland stalls.
Sip on sodas and alcoholic drinks (both at own expense) at the snow bars, and refuel with snacks (own expense) at the enticing food stalls.
Visit a fortune-telling stand to discover what the new year might have in store. Experience the ancient Finnish custom of tin casting: where a fortune-teller melts a piece of tin, leaves it to solidify, and then ‘reads’ its new shape to predict your future.
As the clock ticks down, enjoy a visit from Santa Claus himself. Hear the jingle of bells and watch as the cheery fellow pulls up on a reindeer-drawn sleigh stacked with Christmas gifts.
Then, join the countdown to midnight and watch a spectacular fireworks display and dance performance marking the turn of the year.
After around two hours, travel back to Rovaniemi, where your experience finishes at the original starting point.
Please note: the order of activities as described above may change on the day of your tour depending on weather conditions and other seasonal factors.
