Each glass igloo has a kitchenette, shower and toilet. The windows are insulated and electrically heated to keep them from frosting. The kitchenette is equipped with a breakfast set for two, electric stove, microwave and kettle, toaster and fridge. In addition, the igloos have a radio/CD player, a hair dryer and a socket for car engine heaters. At the centre of the igloo is a motorised double bed that can be converted into twin beds.

Enjoy your first evening in Lapland. With no light pollution and no noise you can truly feel the beauty of the Arctic night, admire the night sky and hopefully see the Northern Lights. Hear the silence of the wilderness and breathe in the cleanest air in Europe. Any clear night, grab a blanket, wander outside and watch for the Northern Lights.

Day 2 - Reindeer Sleigh Riding, meeting Santa in his cottage and Christmas Eve dinner

How very Christmassy to spend it on the most traditional way to travel in Lapland, a reindeer sleigh. Today, elves will meet you outside the hotel and you will try with their help to find an old Lappish village where Santa’s cottage is hidden in the forest.

In the village we will get to know Santa’s reindeer and you will have reindeer drive in a winter wonderland. The speed is dependent on the reindeer – Santa has both young ones who like to race and calmer lead reindeers. After the sledge drive you will hear stories of the past and present life. You will even have a chance to feed the young reindeer!

Then it’s time to meet Santa in his cottage. After greeting everyone, Santa will tell greetings from Mrs. Santa. As a small gift from her he gives children some homemade ginger bread cookies and chocolate. Santa tells you stories about himself and his elves and about Christmas time. After a while Santa will take his book of secrets, where the elves have written things about all children. He will discuss things with each person and child. After discussions and noticing that all have been good boys and girls, Santa will give a small present for every child. Other presents he will bring you on Christmas. At the end of the visit you have possibility to take a photo together with Santa.

After the 30 min meeting with Santa, hot drinks and local sweet pastry are served in a cozy wooden cottage.

Return to the glass igloos and spend the late afternoon sledding around before your special 4-course Christmas Eve dinner is served at the Restaurant Aurora Sky, with it's glass teepee windows.
