Christmas at Luosto 5 day trip to Lapland

Christmas in Lapland

The chance for a privileged few to come to Lapland in search of Father Christmas, his reindeer and elves. This tour is where dreams can become a reality. Children will encounter magical moments as they seek out Father Christmas. There'll be the chance to go sledging, enjoy reindeer and husky rides and trips by motorised snow scooters. Although Santa has been very busy during December supervising the despatch of toys worldwide he looks forward to meeting all the children who have made the journey to see him in his Lapland home.

Day 1

Following your arrival in Lapland one transfers to Luosto where you will be accommodated in your log cabin or hotel. Here you will receive your hired snow suits and boots, then while away the evening with some tobogganing or enjoy a drink in the bar before dinner.


Day 2

Will today be the day you find Santa?  Your adventure is planned for today using a combination of skidoo, husky dogs and reindeer. It is to be hoped that Donner and Blitzen will give your scouts advice as to Santa's location but fear not, if you do not find him today you are sure to track him down on Christmas day when he returns from his world-wide task.

Lunch will be taken at an outside venue. This evening, back at Luosto a delicious Finnish Christmas buffet dinner awaits.
