About the Holiday

Itinerary :

Day 1:  HELSINKI
After arriving in Helsinki you will make your own way to your centrally located hotel. Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is situated on the Baltic Sea with a 100-kilometre-long shoreline and surrounded by 300 islands. Helsinki is famous for its urban events, restaurants, bars and nightclubs which make it a vibrant capital with many cultural offerings ranging from punk rock to classical and contemporary art.
Overnight:  Helsinki 

Day 2:  HELSINKI
Today will be entirely at your leisure. If you are in Helsinki around Christmas then the Seurasaari Christmas Path is a pre-Christmas event for families with children not to be missed. It gives children and the young at heart the possibility to have a look into the world of fairytales and to learn old Finnish Christmas traditions. The path offers around 30 activities filled with Christmas spirit, and of course such an experience would not be complete without a chance to see Father Christmas and Mrs. Claus so they will also be present. We also suggest a visit to St Thomas Market (December). This annual Christmas event takes place at the beautiful Senate Square, with over 120 booths selling everything from handicrafts to canned foods for the Christmas table. You can stroll among the booths and enjoy the old-fashioned Christmas atmosphere and watch the artisans at their work. Or of course Helsinki also offers plenty to those interested in more neutral activities such as Museums, historic monuments to visit, shopping opportunities and so much more.
Overnight:  Helsinki  (B)

Day 3:  HELSINKI – IVALO – KAKSLAUTTANEN
After breakfast you will make you own way to Helsinki Airport for the flight to Ivalo (not included). On arrival in Ivalo you will be transferred to Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort. At this point the remainder of the day will be at your leisure.  Your accommodation for tonight will be a little unusual; the glass igloo provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity to admire the northern lights and the millions of stars in the crystal clear sky in comfort. Built from special thermal glass the temperature inside the igloo always stays warm and the glass has also been specially made to prevent it from getting frosted over keeping the view clear even when the temperature outside drops to under 30 degrees. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds.

You will drive up to the beautiful Kaunispaa fell, 436m above sea level, at the top of which you will be able to enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding area below. The trail will then continue through the beautiful & mystical forest as you get a taste of Finnish Lapland. This excursion will include a coffee break and the use of the required equipment and thermal clothing. After returning to the resort the rest of the day will then be at your leisure.  
Overnight:  Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort – Cabin  (BD)

Helsinki
Helsinki is the capital and largest city of Finland. It is in the southern part of Finland, on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, by the Baltic Sea.

Founded in 1550 as a rival to the Hanseatic city of Reval (today Tallinn) by King Gustav I of Sweden, the town of Helsinki struggled in its infancy. The fledgling settlement was plagued by poverty, wars, and diseases. For a long time it remained a small coastal town, overshadowed by the more thriving trade centers in the Baltic region.

Helsinki spreads around a number of bays and peninsulas and over a number of islands. Much of Helsinki outside the inner city area consists of postwar suburbs separated from each other by patches of forests. A narrow, ten kilometer (6.2 mi) long Helsinki Central Park that stretches from the inner city to the northern border of Helsinki is an important recreational area for the residents.

The city's climate is humid continental, meaning the average of the coldest month is no more than −3 C (27 F). Summers are usually pleasantly warm, daily maximum temperatures during the summer-months are usually around 18-26 C (64-79 F).

The biggest historical museum in Helsinki is the National Museum of Finland, which displays a vast historical collection from prehistoric times to the 21st century. The museum building itself, a national romantic style neo-medieval castle, is a tourist attraction. Other major historical museum is the Helsinki City Museum, which introduces visitors to Helsinki's 500 year history.

The central hub of Helsinki is around the bustling seafront Kauppatori (Market Square). Here, locals gather to lunch, shop for fresh fish and vegetables and buy produce from the market stalls. From this point, the architectural heart of Helsinki, Senaatintori (Senate Square), is a five-minute walk away.
Most of the nightlife is centrally located around Uudenmaankatu and Eerikinkatu and bar-hopping is easily done on foot. The Helsinkiliset are fairly relaxed about their dress code; visitors will feel at ease in anything from jeans to eveningwear, depending on the venue. Helsinki seems to specialize in the bar-cum-restaurant - the early shift comes to dine, the later crowd to party. Most stay open until about 0300 in the summer, while hours vary in the winter.
