About Snow is Falling


A short break to the far reaches of Finnish Lapland; 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 true 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 himself. These pre-Christmas family short breaks offer the chance to step into this enchanting scene, with enough time to indulge in the wonders of Lapland. Journey across the icy terrain on a snowmobile or board a sled pulled by a lively team of huskies. Excitement mounts even more 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.

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.
