Winter Wonders in Finland- 7 Days

Day Arrive in Helsinki

Day City tour of Helsinki
  • Enjoy Scandinavian breakfast at the hotel. Scandinavian breakfast is usually fresh bread, cheeses, yogurt, cereal, boiled eggs, herring, cold cuts, and coffee or tea. 
  • At 10:00 hours, proceed for a 3 hours city tour of Helsinki in a private vehicle. 
  • This tour covers the major sights of Helsinki. Among the most striking features of the Helsinki architecture are the largish areas built in a uniform style. The city thus has whole blocks and even districts representing Neoclassical, Art Nouveau, and National Romantic, functional or modern architecture. The oldest area in Helsinki that has been preserved intact is the Senate Square, reminiscent of St. Petersburg in its neoclassical style. 
  • In the 1970s Helsinki acquired some important new public buildings - e.g. the Finlandia Hall, the City Theatre, the new National Opera, the official residence of the Finnish President and the Temppeliaukio Church - which are now important landmarks on the Helsinki street scene. 
  • The City Tour includes all essential sights in the city centre including the Sibelius Park with the Sibelius Monument, an unusual steel monument from 1967, commemorating the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.
  • Pay a visit to Temppeliaukio Church (The Church in the Rock), completed in 1969 and carved out of a solid rock and topped with a copper dome.  
    Only the dome is visible from the outside. The pantheon-like interior is enhanced by the rugged granite walls and the copper-plated cupola. The excellent acoustics make this a favourite venue for concerts.

  • Overnight stay at your hotel in Helsinki.

  • Reindeer day with Snowmobile - We will drive with snowmobiles to a reindeer farm, where you will meet the reindeer herders and learn about the importance of reindeer in Lapland. You will learn how to lasso a reindeer and have a short ride in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. We will also enjoy soup lunch during the day.
  • Aurora Camp - This program takes you to the amazing surroundings. You will be comfortably seated in a sledge that is pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. This way you can enjoy the northern sky all the way to the camp site. At the camp there is a hut with an open fire to warm us up on a cold night of Aurora hunting. Your guide will also serve warm drinks to keep you heated and cozy. The camp has a minimum amount of light pollution, so it is perfect for viewing the Northern lights that hopefully show up in the sky.
  • Aurora Snowshoeing - Experience the surrounding nature and Aurora Borealis on foot! Snowshoeing in the woods at night has it’s own excitement. You will wander in the amazing taiga forests surrounding Muotka until finally reaching the camp spot. At the camp we enjoy some warm drinks and gaze at the sky in the hopes of a possible Northern Lights show.
