Itinerary at a glance

Welcome

Having just flown across the Arctic Circle, the children will love being greeted at Ivalo Airport by Santa's reindeer and friends, the Samis and one of his elves, presenting a delightful photo opportunity to capture your family’s first few minutes in Santa's homeland!

A short, comfortable 25-minute coach-ride transfers you to your chosen hotel or cabin in Saariselkä – just enough time to see if the children can spot more reindeer or maybe Santa's little log-cabin home through the forests bordering the road.
Time for your ‘Michelin-man’ impressions, as Santa's helpers get you fitted with your complimentary thermal over-suits, boots, socks, gloves and hats.

Then it’s fun-time - a chance to explore and get your bearings on arrival in this winter wonderland, make snowmen, go tobogganing, or just relax in a fragrant Finnish sauna – the choice is yours! For hotel guests a wonderful first Lapland night dinner sets the scene for tomorrow’s excitement!

Adventure Day

This extra day on this 4 day break will normally be your second day, and gives you the chance to start building up the excitement, with your choice of my fantastic Optional Adventures. And don’t forget that early bookings can save £££’s with my 50% discount off children’s prices!

Try a sensational daytime Snowmobile Safari, where parents take it in turns to drive the snowmobile and children will be towed in a special sled by the guide, or the evening snowmobile option, with the popular Northern Lights Adventure. Or perhaps enjoy a few hours downhill skiing, or Saariselkä’s toboggan run. Animal lovers may prefer to go for an extra, longer Husky Sled Ride or Reindeer Sleigh Ride – always a popular option with the children.

Half board hotel guests dine in the hotels. There will be lots of stories to tell about the day’s adventures, as the excitement mounts for tomorrow’s Big Day!

Search for Santa

Santa's helpers will pick you up for the ultimate Christmas adventure, enjoying all the following exciting activities at some point throughout the day, all of which are included in the prices!

Husky Sled Ride – where the 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! Imagine your sled, drawn by five or six eager huskies, straining at the leash and eager to run, then released – and you’re off! Racing across the snow and through the woods is the most perfect way to experience Lapland’s winter wonderland.

Reindeer Sleigh Ride – meet your reindeer and your local Sami guide then take a wonderful 7-10 minute ride into the picturesque woods, with the ‘swish’ of the runners across the snow, and children and parents cuddled together under blankets in the sleigh.

The Elves and Igloo Fantasia is hidden away in the woods and 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 enjoying a drink in the ice bar.*

Santa's Reindeer centre is full of exciting reindeer based activities. Join in the fun and play on the Crazy Reindeer Golf, Try your hand and Reindeer Lasso or feed one of the reindeer friends, and find out what surprises are in store at the Special Reindeer Barn.

Lunch is also included, to ‘recharge your batteries’ for the afternoon. This will be a simple and warming 2-course meal, with plenty of hot berry juice, squash, tea and coffee also available.

A host of Snow and Ice Fun Activities are provided for you to enjoy, such as ice-fishing, snow-hockey, kick-sledding (a crazy Finnish cross between a scooter and a toboggan!), tandem skiing, mini-skidoo rides for the children, and Santa's favourite – tobogganing.

See your children’s faces light up with wonder, as you fulfill your family’s Search for Santa, and meet him in an Exclusive Private Family Meeting in his hideaway log-cabin home, with his elves on hand to make you welcome and ensure there is magic in the air!

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 welcomed.

Finally, back ‘home’ in your hotel, finish the day with a wonderful Gala Dinner while you re-live every unforgettable moment of your biggest ever Christmas adventure!

*Local charge for drinks applies

Grand Finale

Fun-time again, with the chance to thrill to another big adventure, whether pre-booked in the UK or chosen locally the day before from my range of Optional Adventures. You may have fallen in love with the huskies and want to enjoy an even longer Husky Sled Ride, or relax on Rudolph’s Reindeer Run, or perhaps take off on a Snowmobile Safari for high-octane thrills – there are plenty of options to choose from.

This morning also gives you a chance to browse the village’s souvenir shops, to choose from their range of traditional hand-made Lappish items and clothes, Christmas gifts and toys.

Santa's helpful team will collect you from your doorstep by coach for the short ride to the airport to catch your flight home, to a chorus of fond farewells! The amount of time allowed to do these activities depends on the actual flight departure time.
