Two days in Santa's homeland jam-packed with excitement, laughs and unforgettable moments. Try out some of the many winter activities and see stunning snow-filled landscapes on traditional Lappish transport - husky and reindeer sleds. There's nothing like Santa Claus Village, everyone loves its enchanting atmosphere.
Let the Magic Begin
Once you've landed in the snowy wonderland look out for Santa's elves who'll meet you at the airport. It's very chilly so the elves will take you by coach to the locker room to get you into a thermal suit and comfy boots. You'll then head for lunch where you will enjoy a nice hot meal before you're whisked to the activity park where the fun really begins.
Snow Fun at the Activitiy Park
Now's your chance to race against each other on toboggans down the slopes or just have a huge snowball fight in the snow! You could even try the kicksleds, a local form of transport and easy for everyone to use so you should get the hang of them in no time. The kids can see more of the captivating scenery as they enjoy a shortsnowmobile ride. Next have a go at tandem skiing, it provides plenty of giggles, and try out snowshoes, they were invented to be able to walk over the snow without sinking. Have some hot berry juice before hopping aboard a short reindeer sled for a leisurely ride before a team of huskies will take you on a quick fast-paced sled ride.
* Lunch is included on this day.
The highlight of the day could be when you and your family have a private meeting with the man himself, Santa Claus!
Optional Evening Excursion
After resting in your hotel for a while it's up to you if you want to fit in more. Fancy searching for the phenomenal Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)? You can with us.
Christmas Delights Come Early
The morning begins how you want, whether that's playing in the snow or taking an optional excursion. You'll enjoy the hearty lunch at Forest Manor as you'll need energy for the excitement to come in magical Santa Claus' Village. Send a letter from Santa Claus, stamped with the special postmark of the Santa Claus Post Office. Cross the Arctic Circle and receive a certificate for doing so. There's a lovely choice of bars and restaurants, the Ice Bar is a 'cool' place to take a break.
For one last blast of fun you'll be heading off on a snowmobile ride through the snowy forest before you can sit back and relax and remember what fun you had on your Lapland adventure over a complimentary Christmas dinner on our flight home.
