Overnight:  Harriniva Holiday Centre or Hotel Jeris  (D)

Day 2:  REINDEER

After breakfast the guide will drive you up to the 100 year old, traditional reindeer farm Torassieppi (approximately 20 minutes). Here you have a chance to get a glimpse of the life in earlier days when visiting the old Lappish farm house. The guide will tell you all about life with the reindeer and will teach you how to throw a Lappish lasso. Then you can test your skill at handling some reindeers on the approximately 7km long reindeer safari through the forest (1-2 persons per sled). Lunch will be served around an open fire during the safari. In the afternoon return to the hotel.

Day 3:  SNOWMOBILE

Today it’s time to speed things up a bit. After thorough instructions about safety and driving a snowmobile you will depart on the snowmobile safari. (2 persons per snowmobile, although one can pay a supplement to have a snowmobile all to oneself). Driving a snowmobile is surprisingly easy even for beginners and soon you will be speeding through the snow covered forests and over the frozen lakes admiring the vast wilderness of Finnish Lapland. Lunch will be prepared by an open fire in the wilderness. The duration of the entire excursion will be approximately 5 hours and will cover a distance of about 60-80 km. In the afternoon return to the hotel.
Overnight:  Harriniva Holiday Centre or Hotel Jeris  (BLD)

The guide will take you to the Harriniva Arctic Sled Dog Centre which is home to nearly 400 huskies. Here you get to hear all about the life of these arctic dogs. The husky guide will teach you how to handle the sled and you will meet your own team of 4-5 dogs that will accompany you for the next two days. Each person drives his/her own sled. Lunch will be served around a fire along the trail. Driving distance today is about 25 km. In the afternoon you will arrive at your wilderness cabin, where you can test your wilderness skills by making a fire, feeding the huskies and heating the lakeside sauna.
