Overview

See the Northern Lights*

Being so far north, you’re in one of the best spots to see the famous aurora borealis, or Northern Lights, a natural light show that sees the sky glow fluorescent green, red and yellow. The time to see them is between December and March between 8pm and 11pm, though  there are no guarantees – sometimes the clouds get in the way.

Visit Santa's Creek

It’s time to meet the big man in red. You’ll head to a secluded spot in the woods – one of the most beautiful places in Lapland. As you make your way down to Santa’s Creek, you’ll bump into reindeers, elves and a Lappish shaman, before sitting down with Father Christmas himself.

Day 1

After landing at Ivalo Airport, you’ll be given some thermal clothing and all the information needed for your Lapland experience, and then it's off to your Saariselka hotel. You can spend the rest of the day settling in and getting to know the area.

Day 2

A Taste of Lapland

You can try a taster session of snowmobiling and husky or reindeer sleigh rides today. Afterwards, your elf guide can give you a tour of the traditional Sami homes. There’s plenty of free time, too, so you can book yourself on to an excursion and experience your favourite taster from earlier. Alternatively, keep warm in the café, where little ones can pen their letters to Santa.

 

Day 3 (or Day 4 for 4 nights trips)

Meet Santa

It’s time to meet the big man in red. You’ll head to a secluded spot in the woods – one of the most beautiful places in Lapland. As you make your way down to Santa’s Creek, you’ll bump into reindeers, elves and a Lappish shaman, before sitting down with Father Christmas himself. Come evening, you can tuck into a gala buffet accompanied by festive-themed fireworks.

* Those of you on 4-night trips will enjoy Day 3’s activities on Day 4. On Day 3, you’ll have some free time to play in the snow, or book onto an excursion.

Day 4 (or Day 5 for 4 nights trips)

 

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.

Note: Santa's Wonderland can be teamed with any of our accommodation in Saariselka. The order of events may change slightly from trip to trip, but all the activities will be included at some point during your holiday.

 

Accommodation Details

The Hotel Snowflake is very popular with my visitors to Lapland. With its excellent range of facilities and a reputation for wonderful food. A favourite feature of mine is the Northern Lights Lounge, which offers big squishy sofas looking out to the northern skies through huge, wall-to-wall panoramic windows, so you can watch for the Aurora Borealis in warmth and comfort! Children meanwhile will probably be more interested in the play area and the hotel’s toboggans, provided free of charge for use by guests. The Hotel Snowflake offers a range of family rooms, suites and stylish, well appointed family apartments set in the woods behind the main hotel building, approx. one minute’s walk away. All sofa-beds are suitable for two children under 10 or one older child or adult.
