About Snow is Falling


A short break to Karesuando, 300km above the Arctic Circle; winter activities as well as a private family meeting with Santa.

RESORT: Karesuando

Duration: 2, 3, or 4 nights

As the countdown to Christmas begins, there could be nothing more magical than visiting a real winter wonderland.

Lapland offers a landscape of pine trees speckled with glistening snow, crisp white expanses of Arctic wilderness and, of course, it is the home of Father Christmas! These pre-Christmas family short breaks offer the chance to step into this enchanting scene. There are few experiences quite as exhilarating as journeying through Arctic snowscapes on a snowmobile  - children ride in a sled pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. Your trip to Lapland also includes boarding a sled pulled by a lively team of huskies amid the fells, forests and frozen lakes of Europe’s last wilderness

But there’s little that can match the joy of your children meeting Santa. Excitement mounts as your family sets off on a reindeer-drawn sleigh in search of Santa’s hideaway log cabin where a private encounter with him awaits, the highlight of this unforgettable adventure.

What's included on this short break to Lapland:

  • Return flights with hot meals on board
  • Airport and resort transfers
  • Loan of thermal suits and boots
  • Full board at your chosen accommodation
  • Husky Experience
  • Snowmobile Adventure
  • Reindeer sleigh ride
  • Private family meeting with Santa
  • Small gift for children
  • Santa's Wishlist
  • All taxes and government air passenger duty

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, along with our mini guide to Lapland.
