Itinerary

Day 1

As you arrive in Lapland, your guides will be waiting to accompany you to your resort. It might be sub-zero temperatures outside, but your accommodation will be warm, inviting and cosy. You will stop off en-route to your resort to collect your thermal suits and boots. Your guide will keep you well informed and entertained during the journey.
Once you have checked in why not investigate the area around your accommodation? Have a quick search for Snowy Bowy – you will know if she has been around as she loves decorating the trees with her beautiful blue bows. After a long day, enjoy a relaxing evening dinner before retiring for a well-earned rest – tomorrow the adventure begins!

Day 2
After a tasty hot buffet breakfast in the resort, it’s time to board your coach for a secret location where it is rumoured Santa has recently been spotted. Today’s adventures begin with the help of Santa’s huskies and reindeer. Santa’s Special Elves will also be around to provide the clues as to where Santa may be found. You will have time to learn all about the lives of Santa’s animal friends here in their natural habitat and you may even get a chance to feed a reindeer before enjoying a wonderful sleigh safari through the woods.
After an exciting morning, you will break for a hearty lunch before joining Wendy Wood the elf in her toy workshop, when you will get the chance to meet the Santa’s elves at home. After your adventures you will be dropped back at your resort to relax and enjoy your buffet style evening meal. 

Day 3

Today will be a day to remember on all the Christmas seasons to come. With a little help from Santa’s elves today could be the day you find Santa! After breakfast you will board the coach and continue your search with the prospect of lots of snow fun with the elves as you go. When you do finally find Santa’s home, as we are sure you will, you will be welcomed in by his elves.
To celebrate finding Santa, your final evening will be spent enjoying a tasty festive dinner followed by a children's party with the elves. Will you remember all the actions to the elves’ special song?

Day 4

After breakfast it will be time to leave your accommodation but there will still be time for some more fun before your flight back home. You can spend some time tobogganing down the slopes or maybe just enjoy what your resort has to offer and, after lunch, you will begin your journey to the airport possibly stopping off en-route for some last minute souvenirs and gifts for those back home. And all of a sudden it is time to check-in for your flight and head back to the UK. It’s time to say goodbye to Lapland… or maybe ‘See you again soon’?

Please note this is a sample itinerary and activities may run in a different order.

SANTA'S SPECIAL ELVES
It's time to meet Santa's Special elves… these wonderful characters appear exclusively on all overnight tours.

Speedy Sam
Dressed in red, Speedy Sam is a restless, somewhat impatient but VERY reliable Santa's Helper. You may see him rushing around ensuring things are ready on time for Santa. Has Speedy Sam decided if you've been good or naughty this year?

Snowy Bowy
Wearing a blue and white dress with silver trim, Snowy Bowy just loves everything to do with snow. She enjoys placing bows on trees, building snowmen, castles and much more. She adores the bows on presents and has so much fun decorating for Christmas.

Noisy Nod
This very cheerful Elf dressed in green, is a big fan of musical instruments, Christmas songs and carols. You'll know when Noisy Nod is close by as the bells on his clothes will ring. He can usually be found nodding his head and dancing to the bells crying ‘Ho, Ho, Ho.' Will these bells lead you to Santa?

Tricky Dicky
The cheekiest of the Elves, Tricky Dicky is the real joker of the pack! Dressed in orange and yellow, he just loves to play games with people. He may tell a fib or two to mislead you but he's sure to make you laugh along the way.

OVERNIGHT TOUR INCLUSIONS
On certain tours, the following items are included. Please look out for the icons on the individual tour pages.

FREE Special Souvenir
On departure from Lapland you will receive a souvenir licence to commemorate your visit to Lapland, including an Arctic Circle Crossing Certificate covering the activities undertaken.

Fun For All
Children's entertainment is available in Luosto at the Merry Elf. The children's entertainers perform in the late afternoon/early evening, with the exception of arrival and departure days.

FREE Souvenir CD

For tours of 2 nights or more, throughout your stay in Lapland you and your children can sing along to our very own ‘In Search of Santa & his Elves' song. (1 CD per booking provided, prior to departure from Lapland.)

TOUR ACTIVITIES

Your holiday to Lapland is a wonderful opportunity to experience an array of fun yet traditional snow-based activities, which are indigenous to this region.

2-4 Night Tour Activities

Make Friends with the Huskies
Prepare to be enthralled as the gallant huskies power their way through the Lappish countryside, beneath trees laden with snow in search of the great man. During your 90 minute husky adventure you can learn the art of husky mushing, or experience a thrilling sleigh ride as a passenger. Tour the husky farm and learn about the lives of the dogs and meet some of the huskies.

Learn about Santa's Reindeer
Your 90 minute reindeer adventure takes in a beautiful sleigh ride through the forest. While at location you will be listening to engaging stories about these magnificent creatures from the herdsmen while enjoying hot berry juice beside a log fire. There may even be time to feed the reindeer.

Snowmobile Experience
Enjoy an exciting 1.5km snowmobile and sleigh ride through the snowy tundra of the Arctic as we search for Santa. Children's snowmobiles will be available at various locations.

Snow Activities
There will be a variety of snow games with Santa's Elves including snowman making, tobogganing and snowball fights. Additional use of toboggans is free of charge in resort.

Meet the Elves at Home
Your search for Santa will include a visit to the Elf House, where you will meet Wendy Wood and some of the Elves who have been preparing toys for all the boys and girls who have made it on to Santa's ‘good children list' this year.

Journey to a Magical Post Office
View the Magical Post Office and see where the Elves sort the mail. While in Lapland you will have the opportunity to send postcards to your loved ones.

Your Santa Visit – All Tours
When your search for Santa is finally realised and you discover this enigmatic man's home, you and your children will meet him in private. See their faces light up as they achieve their dream of meeting the real Santa. Children age 2-11 years will receive a gift from Santa.

Your Personal Tour Guide – Overnight Tours
Throughout your stay in Lapland you will be accompanied by a personal tour guide. They will meet and greet you at the airport in Lapland and will be on hand throughout each day of your tour. Your guide has expert local knowledge and will be able to answer most of the questions you may have while in Lapland

This trip has been the best experience of my life so far as I got to do “once in a lifetime” activities such as mushing huskies, driving a snowmobile, a sleigh ride pulled by reindeer and of course meeting the main man himself. I have and will always be the biggest fan of all things Christmas so can’t wait to help your family find the most magical, unforgettable trip of a lifetime.
