About Lapland

Lapland is a dream destination for young and old alike. It is an extraodinarily beautiful region with abundant forests, reindeer and huskies but it is first and foremost Santa's homeland and nothing beats the magical experience of seeing your children's reaction when they come face to face with Santa in Lapland. Contact us with your general requirements and we'll happily discuss the alternatives with you to get the best trip to Lapland for your family.

Why book with us?

All Rediscover the World staff have visited and guided day trips and short breaks to Lapland, some on many occasions. We offer this unrivalled experience to you so that your once-in-a- lifetime visit to Santa in Lapland is truly memorable for all the right reasons.

We have chosen to only offer non-commercialised trips to Lapland. We have found over the years that trips offered by some of the larger non-specialist tour operators can be busier and more commercialised and, in our opinion, this is not the experience that our customers are looking for. Our advice is truly impartial - we will always offer you our honest personal opinion on which options will suit your individual requirements in terms of value for money and suitability; each option on our website is a high quality experience but there are always great offers available if you know where to look.

In addition to this our Lapland Manager, Dawn, 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 her for impartial and knowledgeable advice prior to making your booking with us. She has also compiled a list of Hints and Tips, which will be sent out with every booking, along with our mini guide to Lapland.


"The whole Santa experience was very well run and the airline, Thomson, was first class. I didn't expect a very good cooked breakfast nor did I expect an evening meal on the return journey. The aircrew went beyond what was required and I think it would be true to say they made the whole experience truly memorable for the young children, and some not so young kids ! Unfortunately for our family group one of the 5 year olds was extremely ill the night prior to departure and Dad and he had to miss the whole experience but, hey, that's life. I, perhaps my fault, hadn't realised that once on site the trip was all inclusive, apart from the gift shop but we soon overcame our inhibitions and used the activities to the full. All in all a great day and I would be pleased if you could pass on a special thanks to the aircraft crew."

"Absolutely fantastic experience and trip from booking, Dawn was very helpful and clearly knowledgeable about the trip and the area. Answering questions quickly and clearly. The resort and hotel was brilliant - the Santa's Lapland reps were brilliant with the children at all times and very helpful. Such a great trip and would highly recommend both your company and the trip to others as a 'never to be forgotten' experience."
