Northern Lights and Finnish Food
We will move to a special point where we can generally see the auroras if the weather is good and while we wait for them deep in the forest, we will enjoy typical Finnish food and drinks by the campfire.

On the way we will have stops to appreciate the landscape and answer any curiosity that comes to mind while we are doing the activity.
In the winter all the lakes in Finland freeze over, allowing us to go ice fishing and you will have the possibility of living this unique experience in the lake where we will be located. There you will learn how to use the rods to carry out this type of fishing, and then we will proceed to make our holes with the manual ice drill, where each one will try their luck in fishing. Furthermore, the lake provides an opportunity to experience the silence and tranquility of winter nature in Lapland.
We will visit one of the most traditional reindeer farms in the Kittilä area, which belongs to the Samis (indigenous people from the north whose main activity is reindeer herding). In this place, you can enjoy time with the reindeer, see how they live, and feed them. The local Samis are in charge of directing the reindeer sleds and will take you on a ride around the snowy forest.
Experience the magical world of snow and ice! We will go to the largest ice and snow hotel in the Nordic countries where you will have a guided tour so that you find out all the details of how this magical place is built every year.

Within the tour, we will have a unique moment in the Ice bar where we will toast with glasses of ice and you can try the liquor of your choice. After the tour, you will have free time to enjoy the way you prefer in the place.
