Day 1
Upon landing at Enontekio Airport in the far north of Finnish Lapland you will be directed to your coach for the approximately 55 minute transfer to Karesuando, your base for the duration of your trip. The scenic route takes you through ancient Sami lands of forests and frozen lakes, a picture-perfect journey with the chance of seeing herds of reindeer gathered by the trees. 
You will collect your thermal suits and boots that will be your protection against the Arctic climate along the way before continuing to your accommodation. Once you have checked into your hotel and settled into your room, there will be a short welcome meeting hosted by your holiday representative who will give you all the information you need for your Lapland break. The guide will be available throughout dinner to answer any questions you might have and can advise you on any optional extras if you would like to arrange one.

Day 2 
The day begins with a delicious hot breakfast before heading off on your first adventure. The exciting husky experience allows you time to learn a little about these amazing dogs before you board your sled and speed through the frozen countryside pulled along by these amazing animals. This will be followed by a hot lunch followed by the opportunity to explore the area or enjoy the snow and make use of the toboggans supplied.

Day 3
Today is the day you have been waiting for, your ssearch for Santa day will begin a snowmobile safari. This is an adventure loved by adults and children alike and after a short minibus transfer you will begin your adventure. Your thrilling snowmobile expedition will take you along a predetermined route through the forest and snowy countryside driving at a speed that is comfortable for you. Children are pulled in a sleigh behind the guides snowmobile.

Following lunch it's time to search for Santa. Cosily tucked into your reindeer sleigh you will meander across the frozen land and through the towering pine trees to Santa’s top secret location – perhaps only special reindeer know the way to his cabin?
Your private meeting will see each child getting a chance to talk to Santa and he will have a small gift for every child.

Day 4
Waking up in Lapland is an amazing feeling but it’s time to say goodbye to this wonderful land for now!
After a hearty breakfast it’s time to check out of your room before making the most of the time you have left here. You could join an optional excursion, take the time for a last minute photo opportunity in the stunning surroundings of Karesuando or simply make the most of the beautiful deep snow all around you.
After a tasty lunch it’s time to head to the airport and your flight home. It’s time to say ‘Hei Hei’ to Finland.
