Nordic Odyssey is based in Rovaniemi, the capital town of Finnish Lapland located on the Arctic Circle and official hometown of Santa Claus.

Most of our multi-day trips connect main towns and scenic destinations in Lapland, but we also organise long holiday packages from/to other parts of Norway, Sweden and Finland.



Guided Tours


 All our guides and team members have an extensive outdoor experience of the Arctic and great knowledge of local life and nature. They will gladly accompany you in all your Nordic Odyssey, leading you through your itinerary, showing you the best features of the places you will visit and teaching you about the different aspects of the “Far North”.

Hi, my name is Chris. Let me be your main guide on your next Nordic odyssey!

I am originally from France, but after 10 years of travels, adventures and various challenges in nearly 50 countries, I made the decision to settle down in one of the most magical places I have ever explored : Lapland.

Since then, I have been willing to share with others all my passion and knowledge of the Nordic region. Leading you into the pure untouched nature of Lapland, teaching you about local life or how to survive in those tough arctic conditions, chasing auroras for hours, showing you the best features, experiencing the beauty of the Far North… that will be my priviledge!

Nordic Odyssey has been founded on the original idea to offer visitors an easy way to experience scenic Lapland with itinerant and fully organised trips. We aim at providing guided services and experiences of high quality, following our philosophy.

Quality before quantity: our tours are run in a way so that you never end up in big groups. This allows for a more authentic and respectful experience. 

Fair pricing: our prices have been designed to be accessible and comprehensive. You may find more information about our pricing here.

Ethic & Responsability: we refuse to provide services that would not be respectful of indigenous cultures. We also aim at providing services that are as sustainable and environment-friendly as possible.

Authenticity & Local: our experiences are meant to show you the reality of the Arctic and make you experience local lifestyles. No tourist trap with us!

Educational: our guides will always happily share with you all their knowledge and passion about local nature, culture and lifestyle.


We are based in Rovaniemi, the capital town of the Finnish Lapland, where we organise our unique tours and multi-day trips. But we also work closely with long-established local partners in other areas of Lapland and the Nordics. Based on this trustful network and our thorough knowledge of the region, we can offer you a unique experience wherever you go in Lapland!

All the experiences operated by our trusted partners and offered on our website have been carefully selected by us. They comply with our strict criteria requirements: ethic & responsability, authenticity, fair pricing, safety and high quality services.

For full transparency, tours operated by our partners are clearly mentioned as such in the tour description.
