Rovaniemi is the largest city in Lapland, situated in northern Finland. The area is characterised by its stunning natural scenery, including forests, mountains and winter landscapes. Due to its proximity to the Arctic Circle, the region features snowy winters and is also a popular spot for witnessing the Northern Lights.

Once you are prepared, the snowshoe hike begins!

After snowshoeing, hot blueberry juice and gingerbread snacks will be served as you admire the beautiful night sky. The guide will share stories about the history of the region and life in the Arctic wilderness. After the tour, you will be transported back to Rovaniemi.
