More Information

A holiday to Lapland is the ultimate Christmas present. This is the one place in the world little ones can spend time with Santa on his home turf.


Santa Claus

Tucked away in northernmost Finland, deep inside the Arctic Circle, Santa Claus’ homeland is the stuff of fairytales. Cue snow-dusted forests that stretch for miles, cosy log cabins that look like they’ve been plucked from a storybook, and a population that’s made up of more reindeer than people.


Festive cheer

Lapland pulls out all the stops over the festive period, so there’s nowhere better to get in to the Christmas spirit. Story-telling around crackling fires, reindeer sleigh rides through the woods and, of course, meet-and-greets with Santa himself – they’re all on the agenda, whether you’re visiting for the day or staying a bit longer. If you book our 4 night trip departing on the 23rd of December, you'll get to spend Christmas Day in this winter wonderland.


Winter sports

Santa and his elves are just half the story. Lapland’s snowy countryside was made for exploring and, wherever you stay, winter sports like snowmobiling and skiing are as easy to come by as Christmassy activities. Each resort has got a different vibe, too, so whether you’re after an action-packed getaway or a relaxing retreat, you’ll find somewhere that suits.


Places to stay

In Rovaniemi, Lapland’s cosmopolitan capital, you’ve got international-name shops and restaurants, as well as an after-dark scene that rivals any European city. Levi, Pallas and Yllas, meanwhile, are experts when it comes to snow activities. Then there’s Saariselka, a real winter wonderland, and Luosto, a secluded spot that’s one of the best parts of the world for spotting the Northern Lights.



The venue for this trip is Rovaniemi’s Santa Park, where Santa and his elves spend their days getting ready for Christmas. The huge underground grotto is made up of fairy-lit walkways, colourful workshops and festive shopping stalls, so there’s lots to explore.


Children can enrol in Elf School, where they’ll learn elf words. They can decorate cookies in Mrs Claus’ kitchen, and take a short train ride through the elves’ headquarters. Another attraction is the Ice Gallery, where the Ice Princess tells tales about the frozen sculptures. The real highlight, though, is meeting Santa in person. Little ones will get a present from him, and you can have a family photo taken.


When you’re ready to play in the snow, you’ll be given all the necessary clothing before taking a short walk through the forest to the outdoor activity area. Then, you’re free to take advantage of everything from husky sleigh rides to snowmobile driving. You’ll meet Santa’s reindeer, and you can warm up with a hot berry juice around an open fire.


Finally, lunch is served in a pretty open-plan restaurant at the heart of the grotto. Time it right and you can watch the elves put on a show while you eat. For a full rundown of what’s in store, take a look at the itinerary. It’s worth noting, the day is yours to enjoy at your own pace, and you can do the activities in whatever order you like.
