The Important Bits !

  • All the trips we offer to Lapland are fully protected by ATOL and the operators' ABTA as well as with us - we are fully bonded with the Travel Trust Association (T6816).
  • NO CREDIT CARD CHARGES  (Visa & Mastercard).
  • We have chosen to offer only non-commercialised trips to Lapland. We have found over the years that the trips offered by some of the larger non-specialist tour operators are busier and more commercialised and, in our opinion, this is not the experience that our customers are looking for.
  • Dawn has also compiled a list of Hints and Tips, which will be sent out with every booking, along with our mini guide to Lapland.

It's Easy to Book!

Contact us to check latest availability and special offers and we will provide an up-to-date quote. Then if you wish to proceed we will need names as per passports, dates of birth for all and contact details for the lead traveller together with a deposit of £200 per person; all of which can be done over the phone or via our secure online payment page (powered by WorldPay).

Full payment required if within 8 weeks of travel date.

We offer an easy payment facility whereby you can pay off a little here and there during the year in as many payments as you wish, as long as the trip is paid off by the due date. Some of our customers prefer to do it this way; others prefer to pay it off in one go when the balance is due - it's entirely up to you!




  • Day One

    Flying direct from Manchester to Rovaniemi Airport, your tour guides will be waiting to greet you on arrival.

    During the journey to Pyhan Asteli, a brief stop will be made to collect your snow suits and boots in Luosto. On arrival at the secluded village of Pyhan Asteli, check into your traditional log cabin before enjoying the welcome dinner in the restaurant.

    Will one of the Special Elves provide you a clue to help you with your Search for Santa in the morning?

  • Day Two

    After breakfast depart for a variety of locations to experience the traditional Arctic activities of husky mushing and reindeer sleigh rides. While at the husky and reindeer farms, you will be able to meet some of the animals and learn about how they live in such a cold climate. There'll even be time to feed the magical reindeer!

    During the day you'll stop for lunch before continuing the ultimate search for Father Christmas. Will Snowy Bowy take a break from wrapping presents at the Elf House when you visit? Will she whisper a clue in your ear? Will you find Santa today?

    When you return to Pyhan Asteli enjoy some tobogganing or watch the children’s entertainment in the restaurant prior to dinner.



  • Day Three

    This morning you must continue to search for Santa before time runs out!

    After breakfast, you’ll visit the Magical Post Office where Elves sort all the letters that Santa receives from children across the world. Perhaps the joker, Tricky Dicky, will be on hand to help you find Father Christmas. Santa knows that you have made an epic journey in order to find him and when you finally discover his home today, he will be delighted to meet every family individually. Each child will receive a gift from Santa.

    After lunch you'll make your way to Rovaniemi Airport for the return flight to Manchester. A short stop will be made time permitting for you to purchase a souvenir of your time in Lapland.
