After a tour around this impressive structure we will enjoy a nice warm lunch served in the ice restaurant! We return back to Jeris for the highlight of the day: off we zoom on the sleigh pulled by snowmobiles in our search for Santa. A warming kota awaits us where we will have pancakes and hot drinks and Elves will lead us through the forest for your private family visit.
