Today after a satiating breakfast check out by afternoon. Now proceed for a guided Orientation tour of Copenhagen city.

Walking back through history, you start off by taking a look at Rådhusplatsen, home to Copenhagen City Hall. A step further back in time will bring you to the squares Nytorv and Gammeltorv. You’ll journey past the Church of Our Lady (also known as Copenhagen Cathedral), where an Australian commoner became a Crown Princess; look up to the stars like astronomers have done from atop The Round Tower, and take in the colorful facades of the houses surrounding the historical hangout Gråbrødretorv. If you have a sweet tooth like many Danes, you’ll enjoy the visit to the Bolsje factory. Before your walking tour ends enjoy a short walk along the main shopping streets, weaving our way in and out of secret alleys that will bring you to a view of Slotsholme. With the impressive Christiansborg Palace, Slotsholmen is a hot spot for both royalty and politicians. There it is, your Copenhagen Old Town Walk – short, sweet and complete.
 
Next, comes your turn to enter into the famous Tivoli Gardens of Copenhagen (subject to its opening in the month of Feb, post the pandemic). Opened in 1843 in Copenhagen, Tivoli Gardens is one of Europe’s most famous—and one of the world’s oldest operating—amusement parks, and served as a model for Disneyland in the United States. Tivoli offers a lively mix of attractions, gardens, and restaurants, and maintains a traditional feel and quaint charm.

The story of Ice hotel starts in 1989, when it became the world’s first and largest hotel made of ice and snow in the Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi – 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. It’s also Sweden’s most unique and probably most extensive private art hall.

Icehotel is all about ice and creativity – with art as the result. That’s why the artists invited to take part are not required to have worked with ice before – they’re selected from among those who send in their ideas based on originality and creating it in real natural ice would pose a new challenge. Each year some 40 artists are taking part in Icehotel. The notion that several weeks’ hard work and months of planning and preparation culminate in something that only exists for a few months is in some respects a bittersweet feeling.
 
After such a jaw-dropping experience you will be transferred to Torne River Valley in the evening to explore an unforgettable experience of a Lifetime…just on the bank of River Torne. A magical night with reindeer, silence and stories about the Northern lights – a well-known phenomenon in Sami Mythology.

You must enjoy the silence and darkness, far away from the city lights, hoping to spot the mysterious Aurora borealis. It has to be dark and relatively clear – and you also need some good luck!
 
During this tour you will hear many stories with regard to Sami mythology and history. In addition you may also get a chance to encounter some reindeer in a corral and feed them with your own hands.

The guide will serve you a warming soup with moose meat and bread…though a proper dinner will be served apart from this.
