About Mistletoe and Wine


Get away from it all after Christmas - the perfect tonic to that post-Christmas lull!

RESORTS: Karesuando & Hetta.

Duration: 3 nights/4 days

After the gifts have been unwrapped, the crackers pulled and the turkey nearly gone, this three night short break to Lapland, departing on 27 December, offers the perfect tonic to the post-Christmas lull.

Lapland’s enchanting landscape of crisp white snow, crackling log fires and roaming reindeer will keep the festive spirit alive that little bit longer. It's also a quieter time to visit Lapland too, so you can relax and soak up the atmosphere of Europe's last unspoiled wilderness as you set out into the magnificent snowscapes for a range of snow activities.

This short break between Christmas and New Year gives you and your family the chance to spend some quality time together and enjoy a range of winter activities from snowmobiling to husky sledding. What's more, Santa hasn't yet set off on his well-deserved holiday and will be happy to chat with you now that all his hard work is over. Perhaps your children can thank him for their presents during your private family meeting?

What's included on this short break to Lapland:

  • Return flights with hot meals on board
  • Airport and resort transfers
  • Loan of thermal suits and boots
  • Three nights full board at your chosen accommodation
  • Husky Experience
  • Snowmobile Adventure
  • Reindeer sleigh ride
  • Search for Santa
  • Private family meeting with Santa
  • Small gift for children
  • Santa's Wishlist
  • All taxes and government air passenger duty

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!


  • Day Three

    After breakfast head out on your included 40-minute Snowmobile Adventure, followed by lunch. Then the highlight of your break as you board a reindeer sleigh and set off in search of Father Christmas. During a private family meeting in his cabin, each child can talk with Santa and receives a small gift. After dinner relax or join an optional activity.
