Tour Plan

Day 1 - DAY 1 (23 DEC) ROVANIEMI

Be warmly welcomed by your Christmas hosts on arrival at Rovaniemi’s airport or railway station. At your hotel, children will receive a special passport to be stamped as you enjoy activities over the next few days.

Remainder of the day is at leisure. Tonight, enjoy a Welcome dinner at your hotel.

Day 2 - (24 DEC) ROVANIEMI

Today experience a real white Christmas full of fun at the fabulous Snowfun park. Choose from a myriad of thrilling activities including a snowmobile safari, a forest tour by four-wheeled scooter, tobogganing,

kicksledding or skiing. Ice-fishing, ice-golf and snow-hockey are also on the agenda for the adventurous, but you may prefer to just relax by the campfire with a hot drink, or even fry sausages and sip hot soup in a Sami-style tent.

This evening you will be served a traditional Finnish Christmas buffet dinner.

Santa is sure to take some time out from his busy schedule to meet all the children after your meal!

your International Reindeer Driver’s Licence! Follow the winding trail back to your hotel for an International Christmas buffet dinner.

We had a terrific family holiday arranged by Redcliffe Cruise Travel and we wouldn't hesitate to have them assisting us with our next trip. Because we like you guys! Because you are a local company. Because we like having an agent behind us in the event things go wrong on the journey.

As popular as do-it-yourself travel is and as savvy as we are with all things online, there are some aspects of travel that are much better dealt with through a travel agency and someone who really knows what they are doing. Tammy and Redcliffe Cruise and Travel are so knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with those aspects of travel that are challenging. Its good to work through someone who knows what they are doing and who take as much interest in you having a great holiday as you do!!

I have used Tammy at Redcliffe Cruise and Travel twice now to book our family holidays. We have found her to be very professional and efficient. She has also been very obliging when I have had to ask questions regarding our holiday. We will definitely be using her in the future.
