Do you know what defines the Arctic circle? Arctic circle marks the northernmost point at which the center of the noon sun is just visible on the December solstice. This means that during the polar night period (mid November - mid February) you can experience the sun rise followed by the sun set in an instant. For me, the red sun that peeks at the horizon just to go down again has always been a bigger spectacle than the Borealis, so naturally this miracle – the Polar Sun – is something I want to show and share with You. But before the main event heres what we will do: – Pick up at 9.00 sharp. – 10 mins drive to Ounasvaara. – 10-15 mins walk through the woods to the First Tower. – 1hr free hanging by the tower where you enjoy the views, the wicket, the fire and the surrounding nature while I prepare your brunch. – You enjoy the Brunch – A little walk to an excellent downhill sledging place -> change for some serious sledging! – 15 mins drive and a small hike to the Second Tower on top of Syväsenvaara – The Polar Sun (If the skies are willing) – The Surprise – I will drop you of where you want to go
When I was young I worked as an elf in the Santa village; hence this experience is arranged by a professional, whose curriculum vitae ends with the job title "Official Adjutant of Santa Claus." Born and raised in Rovaniemi I have done a fair share of traveling always thinking what to do, see, understand and experience in a new place. Putting together these two - my knowledge of Rovaniemi and Lapland & my experience as a traveler – led me to build these unique and diverse experiences for You. It makes me proud to be able to share the best of what Rovaniemi and Lapland have to offer.

The towers are located on top of two different small fells surrounding Rovaniemi showing spectacular views of the city and the biggest river in Finland, Kemijoki and the delta of the third biggest river in Finland, Ounasjoki and the surrounding nature.
The car we use is a 2017 Dacia Duster 4x4. I have warm clothes & shoes to borrow but they are not the latest fashion. I have a sledge for you.
