Itinerary

Overview

Yllas offers a lakeside, woodland resort with the choice of cabins, apartments or a small hotel. 

Day 1 - Welcome to Lapland

 

Your Inghams Santa Breaks Reps will be waiting at Kittilä airport to warmly welcome you to Lapland and bring you by coach to your accommodation. Shortly after arriving in Yllas, you will collect your complimentary thermal suits and boots, which you will keep for the duration of your stay. There will be plenty of time to explore your snowy surroundings, build snowmen, find a toboggan and throw those mandatory snowballs. Join us for a welcome get-together to help you plan your activities for the next few days.

 

Day 2 - Santa's Workshop

 

Today is the day! The time has come to meet the big man himself. A magical jaunt is in store with a visit to Santa’s Elves Hideaway. Here each family will enjoy an exclusive private meeting with Santa - make sure you’ve written your letters! You can also take part in supervised festive games, cook sausages on an open fire, help the elves bake gingerbread biscuits and try making your own decorations in Elf School. Outdoors you can meet Comet the Reindeer, catch the snowmobile train or have great fun tobogganing in the snow. 

Day 3 - Husky & Reindeer Experiences:


COMBINED HUSKY & REINDEER FARM + SAFARIS

An animal lover’s dream and a great value excursion that makes the most of your valuable holiday time. Meet some of Santa's reindeer deep in their silent forest hideaway. Learn about their way of life from colourful local Sámi herders and enjoy a romantic reindeer sleigh ride for 1½km across the snowy landscape. Delicious hot fruit juice and cake will be served.

Next it’s time to visit the huskies in their nearby cosy wilderness home. Learn about their way of life while huddled around a campfire inside a traditional Lappish Kota hut. Visit the husky puppies and enjoy a 2km dog-sled ride through the sparkling winter landscape.

On Your Last Night 

Get ready for a Festive Feast! An evening of party games and a disco. Tuck into a buffet of traditional roast turkey Christmas dinner plus Lappish specialities. All children will receive a small gift - souvenirs that can be treasured for years.

* Please note that Festive Dinner takes place on Day 4 for guests staying 4 nights

 

 

Day 4 - (For 4 night guests)

IN YLLAS
Today you can choose whether to book additional winter activities and safaris or try a few hours skiing on the wide, uncrowded Ylläs slopes. Pre-book our exclusive Inghams 'ski taster' package to give it a go. Perhaps you would prefer to wander around the local craft shops, relax at the hotel swimming pool (if staying at Akäs Hotel and Alp Apartments) or simply play in the snow. Then get ready for a Festive Feast in the evening (see Day 3 for details). After dinner, perhaps the Northern Lights will appear for that perfect end to your holiday.

 

Day 5 - Finale  (Or day 4 for 3 night guests)

 

After a magical few days, it’s time to say goodbye to your new friends before being transferred by coach to the airport for your flight home.

* Please note the above itinerary may vary according to arrival and departure times. Other activities such as horse-sleigh rides and visits to the SnowHotel (from mid-Dec) may also be available locally.
