Santa's Magical Experience

We offer a choice of three-night and four-night stays in Yllas, located just north of the Arctic Circle, where high standards of accommodation and a warm, friendly atmosphere make for a great stay.

Meet Santa and his elves, and help bake gingerbread in his workshop hidden deep in the forest. You will also have the opportunity to experience reindeer sleigh rides or dash through enchanting snow-laden forests on a snowmobile or husky safari. On your last evening you will indulge in a yummy Christmas dinner with your family and friends.

Treat yourself and your family to a magical break in Lapland, home to Father Christmas.
