Itinerary

Why True Lapland?
What's in store for your family?

We’ll take you to a magical winter wonderland in the region of Enontekio in the far-flung northern arm of Finnish Lapland, deep within the Arctic Circle - far away from the busy, commercial resorts of Saariselka and Rovaniemi. There is much to love here: the silence of wide-open spaces, the beauty of pine trees adorned with baubles of freshly fallen snow and a whole host of exciting winter activities.
 

The highlight of your trip is sure to be meeting Father Christmas himself. You hear the pitter patter of excited feet as your sleigh pulls up to a small cabin in the woods. Your private family meeting with Santa is an experience your children will treasure forever. All of our Lapland holidays include reindeer sleigh rides, husky-sledding and snowmobile adventures, it certainly is the place to break free of all gadgets, connect with your family and have fun.
 

What’s more, due to Lapland’s close proximity to the magnetic North Pole, our locations also offer the chance to see the phenomenal Northern Lights, making your holiday with your children even more special. As family holidays go, Lapland with Transun is right up there with the best.
 

Let’s make your next family holiday one to remember…

Santa's Wishlist

To help Santa we’ll ask you for some details about your children before you travel so that Santa has something he can talk about with them during their meeting? What they would like for Christmas, their hobbies, interests or achievements, things about your children to make your visit to see Santa all that more magical!
