Your husky experience is a highlight of your four night break but there is so much more to enjoy, from a snowmobile adventure to your search for Santa your short break will be filled with magical experiences.

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 FOR 2017 (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.
