Pre-Christmas Itinerary

Day 1


UK to Inari


Flying out to the depths of Finnish Lapland, an included transfer will see you to your delightful accommodation – a choice of a traditional log cabin or contemporary Arctic chalet, depending on availability. You’ll settle in by the fire to enjoy the cosiness of it all, along with wonderful wilderness views and that all-important Finnish sauna. You’ll also begin your menu of full-board dining with dinner at the restaurant, enjoying hearty regional favourites informed by local produce. Think fresh fish and sautéed reindeer. As with each night, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the Northern Lights, making use of your complimentary Arctic-thermal clothing.

Day 2


Reindeer Sled, Snowmobiling & Father Christmas


After breakfast, it’s time to start your programme of included touring with a visit to a nearby reindeer farm. Here, you’ll meet the herders (and the adorable creatures themselves) to learn about the local Samí culture, before you’re treated to a magical reindeer sledge ride. Then, after lunch, it’s time to try snowmobiling, exploring the surrounding wilderness on a network of snow-clad trails. However, it’s your meeting with Santa this evening that will linger longest in your family’s memory. Take a short walk to his cabin in the woods where the man himself will welcome you for a private meeting with presents and plenty of festive cheer.

Day 3


Husky Sledding, winter fun & Aurora Hunt with an Elf


Today begins with a husky safari through the surrounding Lapland remotes. After meeting the oh-so-excitable dogs, you’ll be taught how to handle the sled before mushing out into the countryside. Then, after lunch, you’ll have some free time to enjoy the wintery fun, making complimentary use of the toboggans, kick sleds and craft workshop. This evening is then given over to a special aurora hunt. Led by a resident elf, your family will be brought out along a candlelit path into the forest, searching for a hidden treasure – a small present. It all finishes around a campfire, toasting marshmallows and looking out for the Northern Lights.
