ARCTIC LIGHTS AND THE BARENTS SEA

AURORA BOREALIS & KING CRAB 

This program offers you a unique and lifetime experience to immerse yourself fully to the northern adventure – the pure nature, arctic activities and culinary enjoyment you will never forget.

DAY 1 WELCOME TO ROVANIEMI

Welcome to Finland – the Land of a thousand lakes.

 

Arrival to Rovaniemi, the capital of the Finnish Lapland. Lapland is as close as reality gets to those who dream of a winter wonderland. Contrasts are a key factor in the allure of Lapland where 24-hour sunlight in the summer replaces the dark winter days. The hustle and bustle of towns and ski resorts is just minutes away from the peace and quiet of the wild wilderness.

If time allows you, visit the Santa Claus Village. Santa will be expecting you at his official office if you want to pay him a visit. Or send a post-card with the official stamp of Santa Claus.

The motor boat leaves the berth in five minutes of walk from the center of Kirkenes. Before starting the trip a briefing devoted to safety rules at sea is carried out. During the trip we will show and tell about local places of interest. When we reach the fishing area your guide will dive and try to catch crabs of sufficient size and quantity for dinner. After that you can make photos with a crab or crabs. As crabs are being cooked we provide a lecture and show a film about underwater life in the Barents Sea.
