Christmas is a special time, when family memories are made that will last a lifetime; it should be exceptional. And what could be more special than spending Christmas in the magical home of Santa himself? A short stay in Lapland is a guaranteed way of making festive family memories that will last for a lifetime: driving snowmobiles down frozen rivers, riding a reindeer sleigh through snow-capped forests, and mushing a team of husky sleds through crunched paths of pristine snow are all part of the fun!

Of course, Lapland is the home of the REAL Father Christmas, so it would only be fitting to search for him in his cabin deep in the snow-capped forest – maybe a friendly reindeer will show you the way!

The holiday begins with a morning flight to the very north of Finland, in ‘True Lapland’, so-called because of its authentic, picture-perfect landscapes, exactly as you imagined them: vast swathes of pristine snow stretching to the horizon and beyond.

In the midst of these wintry snowscapes lies Hetta, a quaint village home to just a few hundred people, which forms the setting for this festive holiday. A million miles away from the commercial mass-market resorts such as Rovaniemi or Saariselka, Hetta offers peace and tranquility amid the excitement of Lapland’s festivities.

Your stay at the Hetan Majatalo will be on a full-board basis, with breakfast, lunch and dinner being served buffet style. In its 100th year of welcoming guests to Lapland, you’re assured of a warm reception at this family-run hotel.

Thermal suits and boots are included for the duration of your stay, but remember to bring hats, scarves, gloves, and many pairs of socks!
