Welcome to Finland, the ultimate winter destination! Touch down in Helsinki, drop your bags at the hostel, and say hello to your legendary trip mates!

 

Today, take a stroll with your trip leader and uncover the city’s hot spots. Tick off Rock Church & White cathedral, show off your mad bartering skills at Market Square, and warm yourself up with a delicious Glögi.

 

In the evening: quiz your Trip Leader on where to find the best leipäjuusto – the squeakiest cheese in the kingdom.

Day 2: Sea Fortress & Sauna

Start your day with an adventure at Suomenlinna, an 18th-century sea fortress just a ferry ride away from Helsinki. Explore this UNESCO World Heritage site on foot, discovering its fortifications, tunnels, and historic gems while enjoying beautiful sea views.

 

Later: Indulge in a Finnish Sauna with a heated pool that we’ve booked for you and you’ll realise why the Finns are some of the happiest people in the world! And if you are the adventurous kind, there is a cold seawater pool we dare you to try.

Day 3: Rovaniemi & Northern Light

Today, say goodbye to Helsinki and hop on a train bound for Rovaniemi in the northern region of Finland. Rovaniemi is Finland's Arctic playground, where Santa Claus resides, frozen magic happens, and the Northern Lights paint the sky in mesmerising colours!

 

Passing through breathtaking scenery, we'll arrive in Rovaniemi by evening. Settle in and recharge your batteries for tonight’s epic adventure. Bundled up in thermal suits, we'll head further up north to chase the magical Northern Lights. Gather around the bonfire with a warm drink in hand and be awestruck by nature's dazzling show.

Day 4: Santa Claus Village & Husky Ride

Get set for a whirlwind of adventures as we cross the arctic circle (yes, literally!) to reach the Santa Claus Village! Take in the festive vibes, it's Christmas here throughout the year. First meet the big guy, Santa himself and share your wishes. Then hop on a husky/reindeer sleigh for a wild ride through snowy landscapes.

 

You can also send a postcard to your family from the Santa Claus post office anytime of the year and the elves will make sure that it’s delivered on Christmas.

Day 5: Snowmobiling & Ice Floating

Need some time to explore at your own pace? Today is 100% up to you. But if you need suggestions, ride a snowmobile through breathtaking Arctic Circle forests, go swimming in an icy lake, or learn the art of ice fishing from a local.

 

In the evening, you can warm yourself up in the hostel Sauna, party with your trip mates at the Halfmoon nightclub or go on an aurora chase one more time.
