Description

Nothing says Christmas more than a snow covered landscape but throw elves, reindeer and Santa Claus into the mix and you have a magical family Christmas to remember!

This festive adventure in Finnish Lapland is the perfect way to spend Christmas combining some of the very best winter activities with the stunning natural beauty of Lapland. Discover the life of a reindeer herder at a traditional reindeer farm, experience the beauty of the fells and forests as you travel by snowmobile, husky drawn sled and snowshoe and watch the magic come alive in your children's eyes when Santa visits with his elves.

Day 1 Depart UK for Finnish Lapland
Fly from London Heathrow or Manchester to Kittilä via Helsinki and transfer to your hotel.

Day 2 Cookie Baking and Search for Santa
Spend the morning cooking and tasting traditional Finnish gingerbread before heading out into the forest this afternoon in search of Santa Claus.

Day 3 Christmas Eve Reindeers
Now you've met Santa and his elves it's time to meet his reindeers at their home on a nearby traditional reindeer farm. Following a sleigh ride in the forest, head to the Winter Village for a tour around the snow hotel before enjoying lunch in the ice restaurant. Back at the hotel this afternoon you can get crafty with Christmas decoration making and then you will celebrate Christmas Finnish style with a traditional buffet featuring local specialties and a visit from a very special guest!

Day 4 Christmas Day Snowmobiles
Christmas is a time for families and this morning you are free to spend time as you choose. After lunch blow any cobwebs away on a thrilling snowmobile safari which should work up an appetite for tonight's Christmas Day buffet.

Day 5 Boxing Day Huskies
Switch your mode of transport this morning to a husky drawn sled and embark on an exciting safari through the snow covered forests and across frozen lakes, a truly unforgettable experience. After lunch you will be treated to some traditional fun in the snow with an opportunity to try out snowshoes, ice fishing, tobogganing and a highlight for the children will be the chance to drive their own mini snowmobile!

Day 6 Depart Lapland
The festivities are over and it's time to head home with fabulous memories to share for years to come.
