Is my child too young for a Lapland Holiday ?

"Is my child to young to take on a Lapland holiday ?"  This is a question that we should hear asked more often than we do.  Unfortunately, it seems that many parents do not comprehend the extreme cold that can be experienced in Lapland. 

We actively discourage taking any child under the age of 2 to Lapland, and recommend waiting until they are 4-5 years.  There are a numer of reasons for this:  Firstly, it's not fair to subject a small child to the extreme Lapland environment.  Secondly, they won't be able to take part in alll the activities (and probablu won't remember any of it) and thirdly , you will enjoy it more, if your child is slightly older.

This advice is easy to follow if you only have one child, however the problem starts when you have more than one and the older child is of an age where they are waivering in their belief in Father Christmas.

Our advice to bite the bullet and make the visit to Lapland.  Yes it's expensive, but you only have one opportunity to do it properly.  Only you know your children.  Make sure you go when you think your child will enjoy it the most.  There is no point in taking them to Lapland if they are too young, you will be wasting your money.  Make sure it's a memorable occassion for both your children and yourself, and let them carry on believing into the next year.  Christmas will never be the same again !
