  • Visit Rovaniemi in a unique and original way ! Canoeing together on the arctic rivers, your guide will show you around the hometown of Santa Claus and capital of Lapland.

    Before embarking for your sightseeing tour, your qualified canoe guide will teach you the basic techniques and all safety instructions needed. You will start on very quiet waters, protected by islands, to get used to the canoe. While paddling, your guide will show you around Rovaniemi and the different tourist attractions... They will share with you their knowledge about the town and its history, life in the Arctic, and the nature that surrounds Rovaniemi.

    As you follow the flow of the river, you will have one stop at the Kotisaari island, which used to be a stronghold for lumberjacks, before heading to the Local Heritage Museum of Rovaniemi located on the shores of the river. The visit of the museum will be the opportunity to travel back in time and discover arctic life a hundred years ago.

    The tour lasts around 3h30, including transportation, canoeing and safety instructions, paddling time (around 1h30 depending on your level) and the visit of the museum.
