Day 1: Welcome to Lapland, transfer to Äkäslompolo village and build your first snowman
Transfer from Kittilä airport to Äkäslompolo village. In the late afternoon go for a walk to the supermarket where you will be able to purchase breakfast supplies for your cabin (choose your own supplies and pay for these locally). You will then be able to enjoy a relaxing breakfast in the comfort of your own each morning with your family before the day's activities.
Free time for relaxing in your cabin: light the fire, make a cup of tea and watch the kids make their first snowman. You have kick sledges, snowshoes and cross-country skis at your disposal, too which you get when you pick up your winter clothing. Cross country skiing tracks crisscross the village and can be used even during the early evening as some are lit up.
In the evening dinner at a local restaurant.
Enjoy your first evening in Lapland. With no light pollution and no noise you can truly feel the beauty of the Arctic night, admire the night sky and hopefully see the Northern Lights. Hear the silence of the wilderness and breathe in the cleanest air in Europe.
