An all-important lesson follows. When everybody is ready the safari trail begins with a drive up to the beautiful Kaunispää fell, 436m above sea level. At the top of the fell you can enjoy the magnificent views of the area below. The trail then continues through the beautifully mystical forest. This safari excursion is two hours long and includes an en-route coffee break.

Day 03: Cross country skiing, glass igloo
After breakfast, enjoy a full day cross country skiing, in the beautiful Urho Kekkonen National Park. Hotel Kakslauttanen is ideally situated for cross-country skiing. The entire Saariselkä area has a combined trail distance of over 200kms and there are varying degrees of trails from family ones to competition and technique trails to nature trails and illuminated trails. The illuminated trail passes by the hotel and is open from 06.00 - 22.00hrs every day and these trails are kept open from early morning even after a heavy snowfall during the night.
After breakfast you will travel by bus Kakslauttanen to Rovanieni. From Rovaniemi bus station a transfer will take you to the Arctic Treehouse hotel, your accommodation for the coming two nights. The concept of Arctic Tree House Hotel has its roots in fragile arctic nature, the fairytale-like world of SantaPark, and northern culture and heritage. The hotel consists of individual accommodation units covered by wooden shingles and standing on tall poles between the trees. Appearing to wander down the hill and curiously peeking at the landscape and sky, they blend into their environment effortlessly. All the buildings are made of Finnish wood, a traditional, sustainable and renewable material. The green roof helps in managing urban runoff and brings the building’s footprint’s worth of vegetation back to the construction site. The wood on the interior surfaces creates a comfortable environment, healthy indoor air and pleasant acoustics.
After check-in you can use the rest of the day explore Rovaniemi, enjoy your unique accomodation and experience its nature activities such as reindeer safaris, husky safaris and snow mobile safaris. Please see all the activity options in our Rovaniemi activity list.
