      Lapland trip (end Oct - early Nov 2016)

      by coanne Online Now Jan 14, 2016 at 3:39 PM

      Hi VT-ers! We are planning a trip to catch the Northern Lights and hopefully some activities like ice fishing, snowmobil, reindeer farm visit and husky rides around Oct-Nov. And then we realise it may be too early to be snowing at this period. Unfortunately this seems to be the only time we can visit.

      We still wanna visit Santa Claus Village... Is that different from Santa's Park? Secondly would Rovaniemi be the right hub for us to do all these activities at this time? Or should we travel further north? If so, what is the best way to move from town to town?

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi there. My family and I (wife and a 6 year old) are planning our winter trip this winter to Rovaniemi. We are first-timers to this unique destination. We have sometime to plan for this trip. We will be booking our flight and accommodation soon. We are looking into the activities that we will participate in. My small one is interested in visiting the Santa Park. As it is a 5 day trip, we have not thought about other activities. We wanted to know if we need to plan ahead about our destination activities or should be just leave it when we get there. Thank you.

      4 Adults going to Rovaniemi end of February 2015 for 3 nights. Our goal is to see the Northern Lights. How do we organize the best way of doing this? Should we take a private guide ( hunter) or go on an organized tour. We also want to do some winter activities in the area. What is available and should we organize this via the hotel ( Scandic) or privately? We do not want to visit Santa's house etc. Be appreciative of suggestions

      Wellington Boots and Snow and Ice

      by Pascom01 Online Now Apr 9, 2014 at 3:55 AM

      Hi, are Wellington boots sensible footwear during December/January in Rovaniemi. they are obviously waterproof but will they be warm enough (with socks and the like of course). I suspect they would be slippery on snow, would that be correct? Or should I look at other waterproof footwear - We are coming from Australia and I have never had to consider this in the past - Thanks and Regards -- Malcolm

    • Best time to Visit

      by SelinaC Online Now Apr 6, 2014 at 2:51 AM

      We are from Malaysia (tropical weather all year round) and planning to visit Scandinavia this year.
      My kids are big fans of Santa Claus and they have seen the photos of Rovaniemi and they want to visit Rovaniemi for sure.
      May I know what is the best time to visit Rovaniemi that we get to see snow and Santa Claus?
      Considering we are from Tropical countries, is it tough to adapt to the cold weather there?
      What's the best mode of transportation?
      When it snows, is it still possible to travel by flight?
      Hope to get your reply as we need to start planning our vacation soon!

      Many thanks!

      by Jonnyme Online Now Jan 2, 2014 at 4:32 AM

      Hi! I will be visiting the Lapland in early February. I am a solo male traveler and my concerns are should i stay in rovaniemi or further up north? e.g 1-2 days stay then move up to Levi etc and spend another 1-2 days there. My interests are in the beauty of the wilderness area (easy to moderate winter trails that dont take more than a day), husky and reindeer rides and hopefully catching a free aurora instead of going with the tours provided (am contemplating the night snowmobile aurora hunt, not sure if its worth though). Im always open to recommendations! Much help would be appreciated please!
