About Auld Lang Syne


Celebrate the New Year in style in Lapland!

RESORTS:  Karesuando & Hetta

Duration: 4 Days

Another year begins and it’s a time of celebration, renewal and expectation. This year, why not do something extra special for New Year that the whole family will enjoy? Welcome in the New Year on this three night family adventure that encapsulates the best of this region in the far north of Lapland.

Hop aboard a snowmobile for an invigorating expedition over Arctic terrain and feel the thrill as excitable huskies lead you through the frozen Sàmi landscape. One of the highlights is your search for Father Christmas to thank him for the presents and you'll be led to Santa's secret hideaway in the forest by reindeer sleigh. You will also indulge in a celebratory New Year’s Eve feast, and if you choose to stay in the border village of Karesuando, you can hop back an hour to Swedish Lapland and relive the celebrations all over again - two New Years for the price of one!

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.

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).

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!
