Starting from the capital of Finland, Helsinki, let’s explore the city’s most well-known cathedrals, the Helsinki Cathedral and the Uspenski Cathedral, constructed in the 1800s. The cathedrals were built when Finland was a part of Russia, and they have become the landmarks of Helsinki. Next, we will walk around the Kauppatori Market, offering everything from local produce to souvenirs. Kauppatori makes the city more vibrant. The last stop of our city tour will be Sibelius Park. In the heart of the park sits the monument of Sibelius, a renowned Finnish composer who helped Finland to get the national identity. The park is situated at the waterfront of a large bay west of Helsinki with one of the best cafés in greater Helsinki. Lastly, you will take an overnight train to Rovaniemi.

Snowshoeing / Ice Fishing / Campfire barbecue lunch / Hunting Northern Lights Tour / accommodation * twin room

Since you have become a certified Arctic trekker, use your new skillsets with a snowshoe trek to walk through the forest. Snowshoes allow you to walk through deep snow without falling down. We continue our journey in the forest until we arrive at our ice fishing location. Depending on the time of year, the lake could be frozen 30cm underneath the surface. We will be using ice drills to access the unfrozen water. If you are lucky enough, you might be able to catch a fish.
