This morning your flight will depart at approximately 10am.

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

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

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 your resort.

This morning you leave resort 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.

This morning after breakfast, there will be the opportunity to enjoy some tobogganing 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 the resort. As you leave 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 may be made en route to enable you to purchase some Lapland souvenirs before boarding your flight to the UK.

Your flight will land back in the UK around 7pm.
