  • On Location: Behind The Scenes In Lapland

    Our blog editor has been on a very festive visit to Lapland to follow Thomson’s photography team on a shoot. Here are some highlights from the journey…

    First things first: a holiday to Lapland is festive from the word go – even the cabin crew on our flight from Gatwick to Ivalo Airport were wearing Santa hats.

    Our in-flight meals also had a festive touch (although I can confirm there was no reindeer inside)…

    … and all the kids onboard (of which there were many!) were given festive activity packs, which included a Thomson The Dog colouring-in competition. This is Tia, 8, getting stuck in.

    The children were also given the chance to write a letter to Santa, who they’d be meeting later in the trip. This is 9-year-old Dillon’s letter – a puppy is top of his wish-list. Join the club, Dillon!

    I couldn’t resist taking the obligatory photograph-through-the-window shot – talk about a seat with a view.

    The view from the plane

    As soon as we stepped on to the tarmac, the temperature plummeted. Here’s our plane after landing on the snowy runway of Ivalo Airport. The temperature was -6, which I’m told is positively balmy in these parts.

    As we set off for our first shoot of the day, the scenery opened up before us – here’s a snowy scene in Saariselka.

    After getting dressed in our snowsuits, it was off to work. Here’s a sneak preview of our models getting snapped in the snow. You might just spot a reindeer in the background – more on them in tomorrow’s post!
