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.
  • 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).

Full payment required if within 8 weeks of travel date.

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 One - arriving into Lapland

    Leaving the UK far behind arrive in Lapland, where your guides will be waiting to transport you to Luosto. You may be staying in a wilderness location but the excellent accommodation in Luosto will be warm and cosy.

    After you have checked in see if you can find Snowy Bowy. She's often seen in Luosto placing pretty blue bows here and there. Tonight relax & enjoy the welcome dinner.


  • Day Two - your search for Santa begins

    Enjoy a hot buffet breakfast in resort then its time to join your tour guide and board the coach as you head to a secret location where Santa has recently been seen.

    As the adventures begin with the help of huskies and reindeer the Special Elves will provide you with clues as to where Santa might be. Perhaps Prancer, Donner and Blitzen will advise your guides of the best routes to take. Learn about the lives of Santa's faithful furry friends; there may even be time to feed a reindeer before enjoying a sleigh safari.

    After an exciting morning you'll stop for a warming lunch then join Wendy Wood in her toy workshop when you meet the Elves at home. Once again this evening there will be a buffet-style dinner in Luosto.

  • Day Three - discover Santa's home with the help of the Elves

    This morning you leave Luosto to resume the search for Santa. Will his Special Elves help you to find Santa's secret hideaway today? Yes, they will!

    Expect to play lots of snow games with the Elves, although you will need to try to keep up with Speedy Sam as he races around. Watch out for Tricky Dicky, he could well send you in the wrong direction, as you undertake a final search for Santa. When you discover Santa's home a friendly Elf will be there to welcome you into his house, before inviting you to meet the man himself!

    This evening in resort, enjoy a festive dinner followed by a children's party with the Special Elves.


  • Day Four- say farewell to Lapland

    This morning after breakfast, there will be the opportunity to enjoy some tobogganing in Luosto before saying a fond farewell to your Lappish friends. You may of course prefer to enjoy the resort's facilities.

    Lunch will be taken in Luosto. As you leave resort you'll sing the 'Elf Song' one last time and during the journey your coach guide will give you certificates and souvenir licences to commemorate crossing the Arctic Circle. A short stop will be made en route to enable you to purchase some Lapland souvenirs before boarding your flight to the UK.
