With Christmas edging ever-nearer, our Lapland day trips are once again proving incredibly popular. So, with that in mind, we’re giving you even more opportunities to book a date in Santa’s diary…
Our Lapland day trips make it easy to discover some extra-special festive fun this Christmas. We’ve got two incredible options to choose from. Fly to Rovaniemi, and experience all the magic of Santa’s Secret Grotto. Or, head off to Kittilä to track down Saint Nick with our Search for Santa package. Sign yourself up and you’ll get snowsuit and boots, lunch and activities all included in the price of your trip, whichever you decide to plump for. Here’s a closer look at what you can expect, as well as exactly what’s new this winter…
Rovaniemi’s Santa Park
This week, we’ve been busy adding even more dates to our Santa’s Secret Grotto day trip – which means you can now fly on 11th December 2015 from Manchester, as well as on 18th December 2015 from Birmingham.
Why’s it so popular?
This action-packed whistle-stop tour has a bit of everything – and the magic begins as soon as you touch down. First, you’ll be greeted off the plane by Santa’s elves and whisked off to get your own Lappish passport. Then, it’s all aboard the park’s train to discover what goes on behind the scenes at Santa’s toy factory. You’ll have the chance to graduate from elf school, decorate freshly-baked gingerbread with Mrs Claus, and send a postcard to anywhere in the world from Santa Park’s Post Office, complete with a special Santa stamp. Wrap up in a cosy snow suit and enjoy snowmobiling, sledging and reindeer sleigh rides, before the main event – meeting Santa.
Kittilä’s Snow Village
For the first time this winter, we’re introducing a one-day-only flight from Doncaster to Kittilä, which means our Search for Santa day trip is now even handier for our festive northerners.
Our Snow Village trips are the perfect way to cram loads of Christmas cheer into just one day. You’ll begin by exploring the Village’s impressive frozen buildings and sculptures, including an igloo-like ice hotel, an ice bar and an ice chapel. Then, you’ll have the chance to climb into a sleigh and let Rudolph and co guide you through snow-dusted woodland. You’ll get a real taste of tradition when you meet a local, who’ll share age-old tales and Lappish legends. And, of course, no trip to Lapland would be complete without a word with the big man. Come face to face with Santa, whisper hello in Finnish and wait for your Christmas dreams to come true.
