About Winter Wonderland

Summary

A magical location in the most northerly reaches of Finnish Lapland, close to a vast snow-covered wilderness.

 

Duration: 1 Day

If time is short in the run-up to Christmas why not take your children for a fun-filled day in the pristine wilderness of Finnish Lapland? Imagine spending the day in Santa's kingdom and still being back home in time for bed - children are sure to sleep soundly after such an exhilarating day!

On the Winter Wonderland day break you'll head to a magical location close to a snow-covered wilderness and a million miles from other overcrowded and overcommercialised Lapland destinations.

An early morning flight departs from your local airport to Enontekio where you'll be met by your Transun Representative and taken by coach through snowy forests and past frozen lakes to a scenic winter wonderland. Put on your cosy thermal suit and boots and it's off into the snow for an action-packed day. Excitement mounts for both children and parents as you venture in search of Santa’s hideaway cabin, the ultimate highlight of your one day trip.

There’s a chance to sample a range of winter experiences, guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit. Whizz along on a sled pulled by energetic huskies or be soothed by the gentle padding of reindeer as they guide your sleigh over the frozen tundra. Your trip also offers the chance to experience a snowmobile ride - adults with a full UK driving licence have the opportunity to drive through the silent snowscapes (children pulled in a sleigh behind guide). Warm up around a crackling log fire or in the restaurant with a buffet lunch. And of course, the highlight of the day, each family will get to meet Santa in his log cabin, deep in the woods. Share your Christmas wishes with him during a private family encounter. There's also ample time to try out tobogganing - great fun for all the family. All these major activities take place on a frozen lake or river. Your Transun representative will guide you, in order to make the most of your time here.

The day trip price includes the protective warmth of a thermal suit and boots but we always recommend that you bring additional scarves, hat and gloves.

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.
  • Our Lapland Manager started escorting trips to see Santa in 1993 & has been many times to various parts of Lapland. We are confident that she is the most experienced Lapland consultant around. Please contact Dawn for impartial and knowledgeable advice prior to making your booking with us.
  • 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 10 weeks of travel date.

We also 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!
