Lapland Santa Holidays > Short Breaks To Lapland : Santas Magic 3 day trip to Lapland

Santas Magic 3 day trip to Lapland

Day 1 in Lapland

Santa's Magic Lapland holiday starts on arrival at Ivalo Airport where the children will enjoy being met by a reindeer and one of Santa's cheeky elves!
There is then a short, comfortable 25-minute transfer to your  hotel or cabin in Saariselka where it is time for your  'Michelin-man' impersonations, as you are fitted with your special complimentary thermal over-suits, boots, socks, gloves and hats to protect you from the arctic Lapland weather.

There is time for fun - a chance to explore, make snowmen, borrow the free toboggans or just relax in a fragrant Finnish sauna. For guests on the half board option, a wonderful welcome dinner to set the scene for tomorrow's excitement, whilst those in Santa's Christmas Cabins will enjoy a home-cooked meal!

 

Day 2 in Lapland

You will be picked up for the ultimate Christmas Lapland adventure. The following exciting activities are all included:

  • Husky-sled ride: where children get to ride with a parent (and shout 'mush mush!' at every opportunity!), and grown-ups can all take a turn at actually 'driving' your own sled! Racing through the woods and across the snow is a perfect way to experience Lapland's winter wonderland.
  • Reindeer Sleigh Ride: meet your reindeer and the local Sami guide, then take a wonderful ride into the picturesque woods, with children and parents cuddled together under a blanket in the sleigh, arriving at a very secret location. 
  • Elves & Igloo Fantasia: Hidden away in the woods and only reached by reindeer sleigh.  Once there, join in the fun and games with the Elves in their Igloo Wonderland before visiting the Artistic Igloo and admiring the magnificent ice sculptures and enjoy a drink in the ice bar.  Meet the Huskies and Reindeer, guess their names and share a cuddle, so don't forget your camera!  
  • Lunch: is included to 'recharge your batteries' for the afternoon. This will be a simple warming 2 course meal, with plenty of hot berry juice, squash, tea and coffee also available.
  • Snow and Ice Activities: snow-hockey, kick-sledding (a crazy cross of scooter and toboggan!), ice-fishing, tandem skiing, mini snowmobiles for the children and tobogganing!
  • Santa Claus: see your children's faces light up with wonder as you fulfil your family's search for Santa and meet him in his hideaway log-cabin home, with all his helpers on hand to make you welcome and ensure there is magic in the air!  EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE FAMILY MEETING!
  •   Refreshments are included too, and are available throughout the day, for those times when a few minutes warming up round a crackling log fire is welcome.

Finally, back 'home' in your hotel, why not finish the day with a wonderful optional Gala Dinner (included on the half board option).  In the Christmas Cabins meanwhile, a special festive dinner rounds off the day, while you re-live every unforgettable moment of your biggest ever Christmas adventure!
