Description

This festive family 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 Search for Santa and Reindeer Experience
Begin your adventure today with a search for Santa. Zooming through the forest by snowmobile drawn sled you will soon find his secret hideout where pancakes and hot berry juice await and then you will encounter your very own private visit with the man himself. After meeting Santa and his elves it's time to meet his reindeers at their home on a nearby traditional reindeer farm. Enjoy a short tour of the Winter Village before enjoying lunch in the ice restaurant.

Day 3 Elf Kota and Huskies
Today you can get crafty in a kota and make a keepsake Elf to take home before heading to the husky farm to meet the huskies and their pups. A 6km husky ride will follow, taking you through the snow covered forests and across frozen lakes, a truly unforgettable experience. This evening 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 Snow Fun
After breakfast 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! This afternoon put your baking skills to the test making traditional Finnish gingerbread.

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