Visit Santa in Lapland, December 2017, from €559 per child & €670 per adult

Tucked away deep inside the Arctic Circle, Santa Claus’ homeland is the stuff of fairytales with 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. Lapland pulls out all the stops over the festive period, from story-telling around crackling fires to reindeer sleigh rides through the woods and, of course, meet-and-greets with Santa himself.

 

Children can enrol in Elf School, where they’ll learn elf words, or decorate cookies in Mrs Claus’ kitchen. All the necessary clothing will be provided for outdoor activities such as husky sleigh rides and snowmobile driving. Finally, enjoy lunch in a pretty open-plan restaurant at the heart of Santa’s huge underground grotto which is made up of fairy-lit walkways, colourful workshops and festive shopping stalls.

 

Price includes: Return flights + Local Representatives + 15kg Baggage Allowance + All Meals + Activities (Thermal clothing, Husky sleigh ride, Reindeer sleigh ride, Snowmobile safari, Private family visit with Santa)

 

DAY TRIP from €670 per Adult, €559 per Child

ONE NIGHT TRIP from €899 per Adult, €829 per Child
