Husky sled ride
Our energetic huskies are ready to sprint into action, racing you through the snowy woodland wilderness. This is how the elves get around, swooshing through the snow, cuddled up and cosy. Even better, the grown-ups get to take a turn at driving.

Reindeer sleigh ride
Snuggle under the blankets in the sleigh, while your local Sami guide takes the reins. Rudolph’s friends will transport you around the incredible scenery - you’ve never seen scenery quite like this.

Elves in the igloo
The elves have built two real igloos where you’ll get to see one of their fun-filled elvish shows. They’ve wrapped some presents and can’t quite remember what’s in them. They’ll need a little interactive help from your kids to figure it all out. Then, pop to the igloo next door to see their glistening ice bar, where you can relax with a drink - and don’t worry, there’s plenty of ice cubes for your refreshing beverage.
