Of course, all children know that Lapland is home to Santa, his elves and his reindeer. And with our unique packages, you’ll get to meet all of them personally. Forget queuing in line for hours in your local shopping centre, because when you go to Lapland, you’ll be escorted by the elves on a reindeer sleigh ride, into the snowy woodland where Santa lives in his log cabin. It’s authentic and the magic is real, as no one else will be around during your visit.
2. The Aroura Borealis
The Northern lights are one of the natural wonders of the world, and when in Lapland you can have the chance to see them first hand. Go out on a late-night hike, stay in one of Lapland’s beautiful hotels with viewing rooms, or best of all, stay in your own private glass igloo. The thermal glass igloos come fully equipped with a bed and en-suite, allowing you to sleep beneath the stars and have a front row seat to nature’s fireworks. They’re also super romantic.
Whether you’re a seasoned skier or fancy picking up a new skill, Lapland is the ideal place to hit the slopes next winter. Yllas is known for Finland’s longest ski slopes, Saariselka offers cross-country skiing with stunning views, and Levi is also home to one of Finland’s most prestigious skiing area; here you can expect less tourists and more natural beauty.
4. Log cabins
When staying in Lapland, stay in style. The most popular place to stay is in a traditional log cabin. Nothing says merry Christmas more than an open fire, colourful lights, and a nice home cooked meal, and that’s exactly what you’ll get when you choose to stay in a log cabin in Lapland. They’ll come complete with Christmas tree, and some even feature your own private sauna if you get a bit chilly. Total luxury.
5. Snow sports and other activities
So there you have it, those are just a few of the things you can get up to when visiting Lapland next Christmas. But remember, Lapland is available to visit all year round, where you can partake in hiking and other adventures.
