Eurobound goes to the Arctic

Arctic

New escorted tour represents expanded product offering.

Eurobound is celebrating 2024 and a 25% year-over-year revenue growth by introducing a highly curated, escorted experience, visiting Scandinavia’s Arctic region. The new 11-day/10-night “Into the Arctic” tour represents an expansion of product for Eurobound, which is best known for bespoke and independent packages to Europe.

Scheduled for winter, 2025, the escorted tour covers Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish Lapland north of the Arctic Circle. The small-group tour, limited to 24 passengers, begins with a transfer from Finland’s northernmost airport, Ivalo, to Saariselka, the country’s northernmost ski resort, for an overnight stay.

Eurobound guests then travel farther north via private coach for an overnight in Kirkenes Norway, before boarding a ship for an overnight coastal cruise to Tromsø, known as the capital of the Northern Lights.

Eurobound-Arctic

Following two nights in Tromsø, the tour departs for the small village of Kilpisjärvi, Finland, near the border with Norway and Sweden, for one night. A coach transfer the next day takes guests to Levi, Finland’s largest winter sports resort, where they spend the night in a comfortable, igloo-shaped cabin with glass-roof. The tour then crosses into neighboring Haparanda, on the Swedish-Finnish border, for two nights, before heading back to Finland for a final night at Santa’s Hotel Santa Claus in Rovaniemi, Finland, and a return airport transfer.

Coastal Villages, Reindeer and Husky Safaris

Activities abound, from a husky safari in Levi, to lunch and a visit to the all-snow and ice Snowhotel in Kirkenes. A reindeer safari with reindeer sledding and a visit to a Sami camp with lunch in a traditional reindeer herder’s hut introduces Eurobound guests to the history and culture of Lapland’s indigenous people. In Tromso, once considered Europe’s northernmost town, a walking tour and brewery visit with tasting provides an overview, while a visit to Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi offers an opportunity to see Santa Claus or send a letter postmarked from Santa Claus Main Post Office. Cruise stops at small, coastal villages and opportunities to see the Northern Lights—weather permitting—round off included activities.

Additionally, two optional experiences await adventurous participants. A snowmobile safari takes guests to the border where Finland, Norway, and Sweden meet, while a Polar Explorer Icebreaker Experience provides a 3-hour cruise in the frozen waters of the Bothnian Sea.

What’s Included

The tour departs twice monthly beginning January 9 through March 19, 2025.  Tour price includes roundtrip airport-to-hotel transfers, accommodations, 8 dinners and 4 lunches, English-speaking tour escort, activities, ground transportation, and overnight cruise. Optional experiences are additional. Arrival airport is Ivalo (IVL) and departure is Rovaniemi (RVN).
