Porovaara Hill is a private and peaceful place, 20 min drive from Santa Claus Village, where you can feel and experience pure nature in many different ways. One option is to drive by silent electric snowmobile to the deep forest surrounded by the peaceful nature and wild animals. After the ride, head to the reindeer fences of our reindeer farm to feed the animals and learn about herding with your guide. You can also spend your night in the forest in sleeping bags made of reindeer hides and experience authentic Lapland while staying in Laavu under the Northern Lights and the starry sky, with reindeer.

You are welcome to join us at our own forest base! Our excursions head to the forest in the morning, noon and evening in winter. When the Northern Lights season begins in August-September, we head to the hut in the evenings to hunt for this impressive natural phenomenon.
In winter, at dawn, we can play in the snow, walk in the forest, sled-slide and sit by the fire. Delicious pancakes are baked on the campfire to be enjoyed with berry juice. At the same time, we can let the forest heal us, its healing effects begin after just 7 minutes in the forest. In the afternoon, the blue moment creates its own light in nature, and in the evening we can see the Northern Lights blazing in the northern sky, if we are lucky. The evening program also includes a safe ride in a snowmobile sleigh deeper into the twilight of the night in the forest.
All programs are run in small groups. Visit Lapland Tours is a family owned business and it cooperates with the family’s restaurants and accommodations. After the safari, would you like a burger at Scanburger?
