Description

This festive adventure offers some of the very best winter activities allowing you to experience the stunning natural beauty of Lapland. Meet the reindeer, marvel at the beauty of the fells and forests as you travel by snowmobile and husky drawn sled, enjoy traditional snow fun activities and watch the magic come alive in your children's eyes when they meet Santa himself.

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

Day 2 Huskies and Arctic Sauna World
Begin your adventure with an exciting husky safari through the snow-covered forests and across frozen lakes, a truly unforgettable experience. After lunch it's time to embrace the Finnish sauna culture and for the very brave take a dip in the icy waters of the lake. 

Day 3 Reindeer, Cookies and Christmas Dinner
Meet the reindeer at their home on a nearby traditional farm and enjoy a short sleigh ride in the forest before heading to the Winter Village for lunch in the Ice Restaurant. Back at the hotel cookie baking is on the agenda and tonight celebrate Christmas Finnish style with a festive dinner.

Day 4 Snowmobiles, Snow Fun and Santa Claus
After breakfast whizz through the Finnish countryside on a snowmobile safari and the fun continues this afternoon 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! 
Another highlight, and the moment the children have been waiting for, it's time to meet Santa! The elves will guide the way to his secret hideout deep in the forest for your own private meeting with the Man himself!

Day 5 Depart Lapland
The adventure is sadly over and it's time to head home but you will have fabulous memories to share for years to come.
