Day 3 – Reindeer farm, lunch in an ice restaurant and Elf kota
After breakfast we head out to the local reindeer farm by bus. Here you can try your hand at lasso-throwing and learn about the reindeer in the museum. After taking a safari through the silent forest we will feed the reindeer before saying our goodbyes, who knows maybe Rudolph or Dasher will be there. Next we visit the Winter Village, with its snow rooms, ice restaurant, bar and ice sculptures. After a tour around this impressive structure we will enjoy a nice warm lunch served in the ice restaurant.*
On return to the hotel we head to a nearby kota where we can make our own little keepsake elves to take home. We will also make Christmas wishes to throw on the fire while toasting marshmallows and enjoying hot chocolate. Tonight continues with a Christmas buffet. Watch out for the surprise guest of the evening, with a sack full of presents. There will be a little something in there for everyone.

Christmas morning and it is time to relax as a family. We will bake Finnish traditional gingerbread cookies, make Christmas crafts along with gingerbread house building.
