Lapland Magic 4 day trip to Lapland

Lapland Magic 4 Day Short Break to Lapland

Travel deep inside the Arctic Circle, to Hetta in the far north of Finnish Lapland. This is the real Lapland and a perfect base from which to go in search of the real Father Christmas.

Some of the locals have reported seeing Santa's sleigh in this area, so each family will head into the woods in search of his secret log cabin. If you find Santa's cabin, it will be with some excitement, that you push open the door to discover Father Christmas himself, who will try to talk to each of your children individually..

A 40 minute snowmobile safari will be an experience to remember. Adults will have the chance to drive their own. Children will be pulled in a sleigh pulled by one of the snowmobiles.u  will also enjoy the memorable experience of a 40 minute husky ride through the snow. The eager barking of the dogs as you arrive at the husky farm will indicate that they are ready to give you a swift ride!

On all our short breaks to Hetta, there is plenty of time to enjoy playing in the snow!  Take your pick from tobogganing, kick-sledging, children's snowmobiles, and of course there is always a snowball fight..!

On the last night of your stay a delicious festive dinner will be served for you to enjoy with your new found friends.
