About Santa's on His Way


A short break to unspoilt Lapland villages in the far northwest of Finnish Lapland; all activities included as well as a private meeting with Santa.

RESORTS: Karesuando & Hetta

Duration: 2 nights/3 days

As the advent calendar quickly counts down to Christmas Day, time is always of the essence. Exchange the festive frenzy of the weeks before Christmas for a two night family adventure in the frozen winter wonderland of Santa's Lapland. 

When you first set foot in Lapland, on the edge of Europe’s last great wilderness, it really is like walking into a scene from a Christmas card. There are blankets of snow and forests as far as the eye can see. Now imagine climbing on board a sleigh gently drawn by reindeer, padding through the forest as you travel in search of Father Christmas and his log cabin - it's an experience which will live in their memories forever. 

You’ll still have time to take in snow-laden panoramas on an exhilarating snowmobile ride and be whisked across the Arctic terrain by a pack of eager husky dogs bounding effortlessly to their destination. All of these memorable winter experiences are included in the price of your holiday.

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,
  • Two nights full board at your chosen accommodation

  • 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.
