What You Can Expect

Evening Riverboat Cruise and Dinner from Rovaniemi

Enjoy a 2-course dinner after the boat cruise

Greet your guide at your Rovaniemi hotel and relax during the scenic ride to the shores of the Kemijoki River. On arrival, don a waterproof lifejacket, listen to a short safety briefing and then climb aboard your traditional jokivene. As your boat begins its serene sail, allow your guide to share intimate knowledge of the beautiful region and its rich timber-rafting heritage. 
Inhale the pure air and delight in gorgeous views of wooden homesteads and dense forests bathed in summer Arctic light. Pass flower-thronged fields as you scour the shores for sights of Finnish fauna, and listen as your guide shares fascinating facts regarding the polar phenomenon of midnight sun. 
Disembark at Kotisaari, a rural island used as a lumberjack outpost during the 19th and 20th centuries. Explore the island’s wood hut and dense forests while awaiting your Finnish feast, and then sit down to enjoy a 2-course meal of local specialties when the time comes. Sip berry juice and cool water and then return to your original departure point. 
If you have upgraded, continue to Ounasvaara Fell by car to the impressive landmark swathed in midnight sun. Toast the success of your tour with a glass of sparkling wine, and then return to your hotel in a comfortable vehicle.
