Today we appear at breakfast just before closing
time as yesterday. The limit time for checking out is 12 PM, but they
allow us to be until 1 PM free of charge. The other option is to pay
30€ by late check out until 3 PM.
We follow our plan and go directly to the Reindeer
Park for the shortest ride: 400 meters, corresponding to one turn to
the circuit they have. We pay 17€ each for it and it takes something
less than 10 minutes because, if huskies were surprisingly fast, this
reindeer rid is peacefully slow.
After it we take advantage where we are to take
some pictures of us with the reindeers. Since reindeer shed their
antlers at different points of the year only one of them is completed.
We come back to our apartment to make some tries
with the sleigh belonging to it, which we haven’t touched until today.
We spend the rest of the time in get our baggage
ready and make our lunch, so we’re at reception desk just a few minutes
after 1 PM.
We still have to wait two more hours to be taken
to the airport and we do a last walk by Santa Claus Village and, when
it starts to snow hard, we seat just besides the desk. We’re saying
goodbye to such a magical place where is always Christmas, as can be
seen on this video from last night, when I was alone in the night:
We’re taken to the airport at 3 PM and only 10
minutes after that we’ve already checked in and passed the security
control so only have to wait in the small hall with the 5 boarding
gates this airport has got. We take off through the snow is still
falling and we can barely see anything outside the plane. This
Norwegian flight is short and there is free wifi on it! It’s the first
time I’m on internet on flight.
We land at 5:45 PM and go directly to the Finnair
City bus stop which leaves us in the train station at the city center.
We only have about 300 meters to our hotel from there. The bus has free
We take a walk by the city center by night taking
advantage of the amazing location of our hotel.
We take our dinner in the bar taken the ground
floor of this hotel, which is full of live, sharing a pizza and some
chicken wings by 25€. Then we go upstairs to rest and sleep.
