Legends 5 Day Short Break to Lapland

The Legends short break is based in northern Lapland in an area of pristine snowscapes, the perfect location for winter activities.  Elves and reindeer are known to have been seen in this area of Lapland so this is a good place to start your search for Santa Claus.

You will venture out into the snowy forest, hoping to find a traditional log cabin known to be Santa's hideaway.  If you and your family are lucky enough to find the elusive old man, you will have the chance for a private meeting in his cabin, where Santa is sure to have time to talk to each child individually about their Christmas wishes.

The thrill of a husky safari.... A team of huskies awaits and you will enjoy an exhilarating ride into the picturesque surroundiings..

An exhilarating snowmobile safari.... The fastest of your included safaris is the snowmobile adventure. You will experience a 40 minute safari on these remarkable machines, including instruction and stoppages.  Adults will have the chance to drive their own (with passenger)  Children will be pulled in a sleigh behind one of the guides snowmobiles.

Tobogganing and snow fun.... Of course, you will also get plenty of time to enjoy playing in the snow!  There will be various activities including tobogganing, kick sledging and childrens' snowmobiles. 

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