Santa Claus : Lapland
Say Hello to Santa
All of our Santa Claus Lapland holidays feature the opportunity to meet Father Christmas in person but, as he is so busy during the festive season, we can never quite tell when your encounter will be. Perhaps you’ll go to the Santa Village in Rovaniemi and see all of the action at Christmas HQ (you can even send a postcard back home from Santa’s personal post office.) Maybe you’ll be taken to his secret forest hideaway and guided down candle-lit paths to his pretty log cabin by one of his elves. Of course some lucky travellers won’t have to make the effort to visit Santa – he’ll take time out to come and see you! He usually does this on Christmas Eve, after your special festive dinner and before he sets off on his travels around the world. Indeed, he may even find time to hand out any presents you bring along for each other!
Extra Special Touches
Our trips to see Santa Claus in Lapland focus on the magic of the season and that’s why we feature a host of extra special touches to make your holiday really stand out from the crowd. You’ll have the option to attend a local Christmas Eve church service, be able to collect and decorate your own Christmas tree, try carving ice lanterns and making other decorations, bake gingerbread biscuits and meet with Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer gang. All these special treats lead up to the magic of your meeting with Santa – an experience you’ll treasure forever, whatever your age!
Adventures in the Snow
Our getaways to see Santa Claus in Lapland may focus on the little ones but that’s not to say we forget the grown-ups either! Our activity breaks enable you to try a host of amazing winter pursuits. Snowmobiling and husky sledding are obviously pretty high on the list of priorities and, on top of these, many of our breaks give you the chance to try snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ice fishing, kick sledding and reindeer sleigh rides. Some breaks feature inclusive activities, whilst others give you the freedom to mold your holiday, ensuring you enjoy the experiences you choose, when you choose them.
Where to Stay
When it comes to selecting your holiday base for our Santa Claus Lapland breaks, there really is a world of choice. Traditional log cabins are always popular, thanks to their cosy, welcoming feel and handy facilities. Some even have their own hot tub so that, after hectic days in the snow, you can sit outside and scour the skies for the Aurora as you let the welcoming warm waters soothe away your cares.
Some travellers on our Santa Claus Lapland breaks prefer the familiar surroundings of a hotel for their festive activities. Here the focus is on personal care and attention, from the moment you wake until the second you fall asleep.
And for something entirely different, how about a stay at the world’s northernmost Wildlife Park in Ranua or a night at the world famous Icehotel in Sweden? Both of these options add an extra special dimension to our Santa Claus Lapland holidays and ensure you’ll have even more to talk about with family and friends when you return home.
