Day 1. Arriving in Lapland
Following your arrival in Lapland, your Arctic Star guide will be waiting to greet you at Rovaniemi Airport, then, we transfer to the idyllic resort of Luosto – a small beautiful ski village, largely unspoiled by the modern world.

On arrival at the resort, you will receive your thermal snowsuits and boots and settle into your choice of a traditional log cabin, hotel room, or luxury villa.

While away the evening with some tobogganing or enjoy a drink in the bar prior to dinner.

Day 2. Your Search for Santa Begins
After breakfast this morning, your Arctic Star guide will be waiting for you to embark on your Search for Santa.

Have you remembered the actions to the Elf Song? Join in the fun and sing along, as we make our way to a secret location where we may find Santa.

Perhaps Tricky Dicky the joker wild will be there to meet us, will he provide any clues as to where Santa may be or will he play a trick on us? Perhaps the reindeer will know where Santa is as they pull the sleigh through the forest.

We may see the Elves sorting the mail at the Magical Post Office today unless they are busy helping Santa with the dispatch of the thousands of presents in time for Christmas Day.

Back in Luosto dinner awaits you.

Day 3. Oh Joy of Joy it’s Christmas Day
The long wait is over – Christmas day is here.

Following breakfast, we will continue to search for Santa. We know Santa and his trusty reindeer were working hard to deliver presents across the globe last night, so hopefully we will find him at home today.

Our furry friends and the snowmobiles will once again transport us until we discover the great man. Will Noisy Nod or Speedy Sam provide the final clue to Santa’s hideaway?

Children will be mesmerised when they finally meet Father Christmas in the unique setting of his home, close to Luosto, and they will be thrilled to receive their special gift from him in person.

Lunch will be provided at one of the outdoor locations.

This evening enjoy a traditional Christmas spread after such a magical day.

Day 4. Enjoy a Day of Activities
Boxing Day is traditionally a day of rest in Lapland, however today a shuttle bus transfer will be available to an activity location where some of our favourite Elves will be on hand to play games with the children.

Snowmobiles will be available along with reindeer too. Lunch will be served at location.

Back in resort why not enjoy a sauna or relax with a drink at the Luostonhovi Bar and Restaurant.

A buffet dinner will be available in Luosto; our final evening in this magical winter wonderland.

Day 5. Say Farewell to Santa and the Special Elves
Enjoy a hearty breakfast at the restaurant, before spending the morning enjoying the resort facilities if you’re feeling energetic, try some skiing or snowboarding (local charges apply) or head to the tobogganing slope.

Lunch will be provided in Luosto, before it’s time to say a fond farewell to beautiful Lapland and our amazing new friends Snowy Bowy, Noisy Nod, Tricky Dicky, Speedy Sam, and Wendy Wood.

There may be an opportunity to purchase a momento of your visit to Lapland en-route to Rovaniemi Airport.
