About Enchanting Lapland


Highly recommended - in our opinion it's one of the best day breaks around.



Duration: 1 Day

It's an early departure from your chosen airport and breakfast will be served during the flight. It takes around three and a half hours to fly to Lapland and on arrival in Enontekio (way above the Arctic Circle) you will be provided with an all-in-one snow suit and boots to keep you warm during the day. Then it's time to set off by snowmobile and sleigh to a beautiful location beside a frozen lake.

Once at the venue you can relax and enjoy the magic of this winter wonderland. Learn to drive a snowmobile (suitable for adults and children alike). All children love tobogganing and at this location you will find special Stiga toboggans, which allow greater steering ability.

As you enter the snow igloo there are ice sculptures and tables made of ice, where you may sit and sample some traditional hot berry juice. No journey to Lapland would be complete without experiencing a traditional sleigh ride pulled by either a team of huskies or Santa's faithful reindeer. Yet where will you find Santa? . . . Well, a snowmobile and sleigh will be waiting to transport you to his home in the forest. Father Christmas knows you have travelled far to see him and your meeting with him has been carefully organised by Santa's Helper. Each child will receive a gift from Santa.

Lunch is available throughout the day and the menu usually includes soup, baked potatoes with either a meat or vegetarian filling, pasta and a sweet dessert of pancakes and jam. Finally it's time to return to Enontekio, leaving Santa and his helpers to continue with their important duties. Dinner will be served on the return flight.

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 protected by the Travel Trust Association (T6816).
  • 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.

It's Easy to Book.

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.

"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."
