DAY 1 – CULTURAL DAY

Welcome to Lapland! On your first day, you will discover the city of Rovaniemi and the local cultures.

The day starts with a cultural electric fatbike tour. You will discover with your guide a few famous attractions in the town but also some less-famous hidden treasures related to cultural, architectural and historical aspects of the city-centre.

The fat tires of your bikes allow you to ride on every kind of terrain! The engine will help you in the most difficult moments and will offer an incredible comfort. This is the perfect way to explore Rovaniemi in summer!

After the visit of the city-center, you will cycle over the river through some forests in the direction of Santa Claus Village. There you may cross the Polar Arctic Circle, meet Santa Claus and discover the official post office where all letters arrive from all around the world.

This story-telling experience will offer you an opportunity to learn more about Finnish culture, traditions and local history. While sharing his knowledge, your guide will even cook some pancakes around the open fire!  

Depending on your time of arrival, it is possible to postpone the e-fatbike tour to the afternoon instead of morning.
