After a short three and a half-hour flight from London, you’ll land in Kittila, deep inside Finland’s Arctic Circle. This picture-perfect resort is home to all the festive favourites. We’re talking snow-dusted forests, cosy log cabins and wild reindeer. You’ll pick up your snowsuit and boots here before heading to the Snow Village, where your Lapland daytrip begins.
Find out more about our Lapland holidays.
You’ll want to grab your camera for Kittila’s Snow Village, because it’s home to impressive hand-carved ice sculptures, including a chapel and bar. Wander along the creative corridors here before hopping into a reindeer-led sleigh for a short ride through the snow-covered forests.
Lapland’s countryside was made for exploring, so next up is a husky-led sleigh ride. While you’re soaking up more of the snowy scenery, you’ll learn about how the dogs are trained, plus Santa’s elves have an interesting story to tell about how the huskies saved Christmas.
Got your driving licence handy? Next on the list is a snowmobile ride, with you in the driver’s seat. Yes, that’s right. You’ll learn how to manoeuvre it yourself before being set loose in the winter wilderness. Then, when you’ve had your thrills, it’s time to meet a Lappish local to learn more about the region. Get cosy in his tent while he tells age-old stories.
It wouldn’t be a true Lapland experience without a trip to see the area’s most famous resident now, would it? Little ones can meet the jolly man himself in his grotto and tell him what they’d like for Christmas. The elves will teach them how to say hello to him in Finnish, too.
Build a snowman, make a snow angel or warm up by the campfire with hot berry juice – the rest of afternoon’s activities are up to you. Just don’t forget to save time for one last snowball fight before the elves take you to the airport for your flight home...
