The Arctic TreeHouse Hotel is situated in the forest within the Santa Park at Rovaniemi. With spectacular views over the treetops, the TreeHouse suites offer an exclusive combination of local tradition, Lappish heritage and modern Scandinavian design.
For the adventurous amongst us, you can combine exhilarating activities such as dog sledding and snowmobiling. For the romantics out there, hunting the dancing colours of the Northern Lights is one for the bucket list. For those with children, Santa and his many helpers are waiting to say 'hello', busy in any season.
Much is to be said however, for simply soaking up the stunning nature whilst enjoying the seclusion of your exquisite suite with a visit to a traditional Finnish sauna/spa complex.

Arrive in Rovaniemi airport and transfer to Arctic Treehouse Hotel. If you arrive early, lunch is at the hotel’s restaurant.
Freshen up in your room and start exploring the forests & small town of Rovaniemi.
After breakfast at the hotel you have a free morning to do optional activities or if you would prefer to stay at the hotel, you are more than welcome.
This afternoon, participate in a reindeer safari! Experience an old and unique Lappish way of travelling. This safari will guide you through the snowy forest with one of the oldest way of travelling here in Lapland. Reindeer sledges in caravans were traditionally used to move the Sámi camps from one place to another, but it sure is a nice way to see the nature and get a feel for the olden times. And who knows, maybe you see some other arctic animals too. When you come back to the farm, warm cup of coffee or tea and traditional snack is waiting for you.
You can also add a Northern Lights tour to this evening. Ask us for options.
After breakfast go for a snowmobile safari. This safari is a good option for those who want to get a real feeling for snowmobiling as well as for families with children.
Even close to Rovaniemi centre, the wilderness surrounds you. We take it easy on starting from the snowmobile resort and ensure that you are comfortable with the snowmobile and make a few stops on the way. Feel free to ask your guide about snowmobiling in general or for some tricks on how to drive, unless you are busy taking pictures of the arctic beauty around you!
After breakfast, head out on an exciting dogsledding safari.
A short transfer takes you to Lumi Husky Camp, where the enthusiastic arctic sled dogs greet you with barking and jumping - as if they were saying, come on, let's go. Huskies are passionate about running and that is why they are eager to take off with you in their sledge. But first things first: instructions on safety and driving. You and a friend are sharing a team of huskies and can take turns in mushing (driving) and being a passenger.
The route of 14-18 km (depending on weather and snow conditions as well as driving skills) takes you through an enchanted winter landscape. There will be stops when you can change places as musher and passenger. You will also have some photogenic moments midst the stunning nature and with the beautiful dogs. Once they have ran off some energy, they are calmer and let you enjoy the silent drive.
Back at the farm we will gather around the camp fire to hear the mushers tell about life with huskies. You will of course also
have time to cuddle and pat your newfound friends before it is time to leave the husky farm.
Afternoon is yours to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the hotel.
Dinner is at the restaurant and, afterwards, if the skies are clear, look out for the magical Northern Lights.
After breakfast, transfer to Rovaniemi airport.
