Winter Wonderland


This day break takes place in an uncommercialised area of Finnish Lapland.

Duration: 1 Day

Imagine spending the day in Santa's kingdom and still being back home in time for bed - children are sure to sleep soundly after such an exhilarating day!

The Winter Wonderland day trip takes place in a vast snow-covered wilderness, a million miles from overcrowded and over-commercialised Lapland destinations. Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met by your Transun Representative and whisked through snowy forests and past frozen lakes to a scenic winter wonderland. Put your thermal suit and boots on and head into the snow for an action-packed day.

There’s a chance to sample a range of winter experiences that are guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit. Whizz along on a sled pulled by energetic huskies or be soothed by the gentle padding of reindeer as they guide your sleigh over the frozen tundra. Your trip also offers the chance to experience a snowmobile trip - adults with a full UK driving licence have the opportunity to drive through the silent snowscapes (children are pulled in a sleigh behind the guide's snowmobile). Warm up around a crackling log fire or in the restaurant with a buffet lunch.

And of course, the highlight of the day, each family will get to meet Santa in his log cabin, deep in the woods. Share your Christmas wishes with him during a private family encounter. And there’s ample time for trying out tobogganing or even enjoying a friendly snowball fight during the day - great fun for all the family. All major activities take place on a frozen lake or river.

The day trip price includes the protective warmth of a thermal suit and boots but we always recommend that you bring additional scarves, hat and gloves.
