Polar Magic 5 day trip to Lapland

Polar Magic 5 Day Short Break to Lapland

Deep inside the Arctic Circle, Hetta is 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, when each child has the chance to talk to Santa and receive a small gift.

A one hour snowmobile safari will be an experience to remember. Adults will have the chance to drive their own. Children will be pulled in a sleigh behind one of the guides snowmobiles.

You will also enjoy the memorable experience of a 40 minute husky ride through the snow. The eager barking of the dogs as we 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, childrens' snowmobiles and kick sledging.  And of course there is always a snowball fight...!
