Tour to Rovaniemi – visit the city of Santa Claus

Join a bus filled with cheerful Rotarians and visit Rovaniemi, a town right at the Arctic Circle 200 km north of Oulu. During the trip, you get to know the city centre, the science centre/museum Arktikum, the Rotary park, Marttiini knife workshop, and – naturally – Santa Claus village at the Arctic Circle.

If we are lucky the Auroras will light our special evening program in the deep nature at Vaattunki well above the Arctic Circle!

We will stay downtown in the hotel Santa Claus, with the option of spending a night – or if you want even two nights – in a glass igloo (extra charge) close to the Arctic Circle. The glass igloo is a unique possibility of enjoying the night with your beloved directly under the arctic sky…

We depart from Oulu after lunch at 13.00 on Sunday, September 13, and return to Oulu by 17.00 on Tuesday, September 15. You can also take a return flight directly from Rovaniemi. The fee includes transport from and to Oulu, accommodation, breakfasts, lunches, dinner on Monday, entrance fees, and guide services. Accommodation is in double rooms; for a single room you pay extra.

Two nights in hotel Santa Claus (single room) 484 €
