Treat yourself and your family to a magical break in Lapland, home to Father Christmas. Experience an abundance of arctic snow and the awe-inspiring Northern Lights that dance purple and green across the night sky. This is the ideal family break to get you in the mood for Christmas and whet your appetite for the winter season.

Akas Hotel is the main focus of entertainment but there is also a handful of colourful local bars, restaurants and an excellent large supermarket. You may even spot reindeer roaming around.

Four-night stay in Yllas, located just north of the Arctic Circle, where high standards of accommodation and a warm, friendly atmosphere makes for a great stay.

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