EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS IN THE ARCTIC Helloworld Travel’s Arctic Experience, Northern Lights and Christmas Markets River Cruise is full of European bucket list adventures that makes this a trip of a lifetime. Due to overwhelming popularity, Robyn Woodruff owner and manager of Helloworld Travel and Cruise Mornington together with Kim Taylor owner and manager Helloworld Travel Rosebud Ninth have decided to run their escorted group to Finland and the Christmas markets again this year. The trip begins with a pick up from your home and you will be fully escorted to the airport. We will then commence with nine wonderful nights in Finland with seven of those seeking a display of the spectacular Northern Lights. Our first night is in Helsinki enjoying a welcome dinner at one of the city’s finest restaurants in Christmas Street. We then travel north on the Santa Express train to Kemi, where we spend a night in the beautiful glass villas overlooking the frozen Bothnia Bay. This will be your first opportunity to witness the remarkable Aurora Borealis, right from the comfort of your own bed. The next day, we travel to the home of Santa Claus. Our first night is spent at the Santa Claus Hotel, we then cross the Arctic Circle and spend two nights in a luxurious glass igloo
next door the Santa’s Village. These igloos come complete with an Aurora alarm and the glass is heated, keeping the snow from forming on the roof. During our stay in Rovaniemi we enjoy a Reindeer Safari to Santa’s Village, an exciting 10-kilometre Husky Safari through the wintery wilderness and a Northern Lights Safari by snow train. We then travel further north staying a night at Levi Panorama, then deeper again into the arctic with another two night stay in Glass Aurora cabins next to Lake Inari. With a view to the northern sky, the thermal roof ensures that the window will stay clear even in the lowest of temperatures, maximising our chances of seeing the spectacular Northern Lights. After nine nights in Finland, we fly to Amsterdam to embark on a luxury river cruise along the Rhine River with Avalon for another experience of a lifetime – visiting some of Europe’s magical Christmas markets. Warm up with a hot Gluwein (Mulled Wine), savour the local flavours of the many food stands, fill your bags with lots of goodies and soak up the atmosphere of the cherished traditions of these markets. We finish our tour with a night in Zurich, where you can finalise your shopping just in time to be home for Christmas.
