There will be plenty of time to explore your snowy surroundings, build snowmen, find a toboggan and throw those mandatory snowballs. Join us for a welcome get-together to help you plan your activities for the next few days - see below for options. Other activities such as horse-sleigh rides and visits to the SnowHotel (from mid-Dec) may also be available locally.
Day 2 - Today is the day!
he time has come to meet the big man himself. A magical jaunt is in store with a visit to one of Santa’s enchanting workshops. Here each family will enjoy an exclusive private meeting with
Santa. Make sure you’ve written your letters! You can also take part in supervised festive games, cook sausages on an open fire, help the elves bake gingerbread biscuits and try making your own decorations in Elf School. Outdoors you can meet Comet the Reindeer, catch the snowmobile train or have great fun tobogganing in the snow.
Make the most of your stay by booking our exciting and excellent-value optional excursions. Perhaps a combined husky and reindeer farm visit with sleigh rides in the morning, followed by an exhilarating family-friendly snowmobile safari in the afternoon - see details below. Or why not try a few hours skiing on the slopes? Levi is an excellent resort to give downhill skiing a go if you haven’t tried it before. Alternatively, wander around the local shops collecting souvenirs or relax and enjoy a sauna at your accommodation in true Finnish style!
Day 4 (for 4 night guests only)
Levi is also Finland’s most famous ski resort, hosting World Cup ski events on its uncrowded snowsure pistes, and guests on the 4-night Santa Break can pre-book our exclusive Inghams 'Ski Taster' package to give the sport a go on Levi's beginner-friendly slopes (tuition and instructor included). Don't worry, you don't necessarily have to bring separate ski gear with you as many guests ski in their included all-in-one thermal suits. However, we would recommend bringing a pair of ski socks with you if you plan to try skiing to make sure your feet are comfortable. Or perhaps you would prefer to wander around the local craft shops, relax at the hotel swimming pool or simply play in the snow. Then get ready for a festive gala dinner in the evening (see Day 3 for details). After dinner, perhaps the Northern Lights will appear for that perfect end to your holiday.

Next it’s time to visit the huskies in their nearby cosy wilderness home. Learn about their way of life while huddled around a campfire inside a traditional Lappish Kota hut. Visit the husky puppies and enjoy a 2km dog-sled ride through the sparkling winter landscape.
