Day 1: Arrival

Day 3: Searching for Father Christmas
Your driver will drive through the remote wilderness until you arrive at the foot of a fell that offers spectacular views over snowy forests and hills. As you step out of the car you notice a red hat that is peeking behind a tree. As you walk closer, you notice that it’s a real elf! As you solve riddles to find the right path to the hidden hut, you will meet some of the Father Christmas’ most trusted elves and learn new skills from them.
After the magical meeting with the old man himself, a reindeer herder elf will be requesting you to help him to feed Father Christmas’ trustworthy travel companions, the reindeer, close by. Maybe you will also hear some exciting stories from their travels.
Day 4: Born to Run
At the husky farm, you’ll meet the dogs, their excited barks filling the air. You are provided with all the necessary equipment, and taught how to drive a team of dogs. As you slide through the snow and into the wilderness, the barking of the dogs subsides, and all you can hear is the pounding of paws and the sound of the sledge on the snow. Standing on the runners, by placing your weight, the dogs turn, and you are entirely in the moment. The white and magical landscape slips by as the dogs pick up speed.
Afterwards you will have time to pet the dogs, and enjoy hot drinks by a camp fire in a cosy, Lappish ‘kota’ building. As you drive back towards your villa, the sun sets, the sky turns .
Day 5: Departure
After your breakfast, it’s time to check out and your host is waiting to take you to the airport.
If your departure time allows, we’ll create yet another adventure for the day, as we will be at your disposal until your plane leaves and it’s time to say goodbye to your host.
