The other (seemingly bigger) travel provider in Rovaniemi is Lapland Safaris, who wear distinctive...More

I cannot say how much I regret having booked a tour with Safartica. Actually, this company must have an arrangement with the hotel "Ounasvaaran Pirtit" because when we wanted to call another company, the hotel recommended "the good one" and had everything organized for us....More

Glad to be here and never imagine I can get close-up with the Reindeer and Santa. Took a photo with him and was memorable. Do explore Santa Claus village, may take 1-2 hours. Beautiful surroundings for photo taking and enough of shelters for resting.
