Day Trips to Lapland

About Day Trips to Lapland

Nothing beats the experience of taking your loved ones to see Father Christmas in Lapland - a dream destination for young and old alike. It's especially magical if you go there and back in just one day! Of course you want to choose the perfect day break to suit your family; don't worry, simply contact us with your general requirements and we will make some suitable recommendations.

Please note that, as 2020 trips were cancelled due to Covid-19, most people rebooked for 2021 so availability, even at this early stage, is very limited.


Dawn, our Lapland Manager, started escorting trips to see Santa in 1993 & has been many times to various parts of Lapland. We are confident that she is the most experienced Lapland consultant around. Please contact her for impartial and knowledgeable advice prior to making your booking with us.

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. Over the years we have found that trips offered by some of the larger non-specialist tour operators are busier and more commercialised. 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 (if any) 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 8-10 weeks before the date of travel (depending on the operator)

We also 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 to spread the cost; others prefer to pay it off in one go when the balance is due - it's entirely up to you!


"The whole Santa experience was very well run and the airline, Thomson, was first class. I didn't expect a very good cooked breakfast nor did I expect an evening meal on the return journey. The aircrew went beyond what was required and I think it would be true to say they made the whole experience truly memorable for the young children, and some not so young kids ! Unfortunately for our family group one of the 5 year olds was extremely ill the night prior to departure and Dad and he had to miss the whole experience but, hey, that's life. I, perhaps my fault, hadn't realised that once on site the trip was all inclusive, apart from the gift shop but we soon overcame our inhibitions and used the activities to the full. All in all a great day and I would be pleased if you could pass on a special thanks to the aircraft crew."
