Your dogs are eager for the off! Huskies are at their happiest when there is an adventure before them. In each sledge, one additional person (or two small children) settles down to enjoy the ride. And then you're off on a journey, part of your Husky Experience, through the wilderness, taking you out of sight of civilisation, where the trees bow under their burden of snow and the distant fells look mysterious in the half-light.

Your Husky Experience is a highlight of your four-night / five-days Lapland holiday. But there is so much more. From a Snowmobile Adventure to a Reindeer Sleigh Ride, from a Search For Santa to a Festive Dinner, your short break is filled with magical experiences. Here is a typical itinerary.

Day One

After you land in Enontekio in Finland you will be guided to your coach. The journey (one hour to the Davvi Arctic Lodge in Karesuando) takes you through the heart of the Sami lands. Your all-in-one thermal suits and boots collection will be organised by your representative. After checking in at your hotel, your holiday representative hosts a welcome meeting and during dinner, your rep will answer any further questions.

Day Two

After breakfast, you will head out on your first adventure - a Husky Experience. This will be followed by a warming lunch. Throughout the day you can enjoy snow activities outside, with toboggans available free. This afternoon, you can join one of our optional excursions, perhaps Reindeer Herding or head out and make your own snow fun. Afterwards, return to the hotel for dinner.

Day Three
After breakfast, you will be joining your second included adventure - the Search for Santa day. including your Snowmobile Adventure. A warming lunch will then follow. If you're lucky, a chance to get up close to a friendly reindeer.

Then, the highlight of the day when you board a reindeer sleigh and set off In Search Of Father Christmas. During a private family meeting in his cabin, each child has the chance to talk with Santa and receives a small gift. After dinner, relax or join an optional activity.

Day Four
After breakfast, you head outside for a morning of family snow fun or you may want to go on one of our optional excursions such as trying your hand at Ice Fishing or drive your own reindeer on our Reindeer herding excursion. A warming lunch will be served. This evening why not join an optional safari and hopefully encounter the beautiful Northern Lights?

Day Five
Check out after breakfast at 0900hrs and you could join another optional excursion. After lunch, depart for Enontekio and your flight home.

Please note: For operational reasons, itineraries may vary.

Optional Excursions
As well as your included activities, there's a whole programme of optional excursions for you to choose from. These are available for you to add when you book - whether online or over the phone.

Ice Fishing by Snowmobile

  • This is a great trip for all the family. You travel by snowmobile to a nearby popular fishing site where you can try your hand at traditional ice fishing – you just drill a hole in the ice and lower your baited hook into the icy waters below.*

Northern Lights Husky Safari

Further Information

  • All excursions include expert guides, equipment and all necessary instruction. On our Northern Lights night safaris, we search for the best viewpoints rather than aim to cover a specific distance.
  • On all safaris, you will be required to share with another person from the group. All prices are per person. All distances and durations are approximate and subject to weather conditions and route on the day.
  • All excursions are subject of minimum numbers and local conditions and are non-refundable. However, you will be automatically refunded the full price paid for your excursion if it doesn't go ahead due to operational reasons.
  • *All Snowmobile activities carry a €980 damage deposit which is payable locally. A valid driving licence must be shown upon arrival.** The ability to drive and control a husky team on longer safaris is determined by physical attributes. Normally, anybody over the age of 18 should be able to handle a dog team comfortably.

"First of all, this was the best trip we could ever have imagined, and totally exceeded our expectations. For the record, our kids were 10 and 5.

We booked our holiday through SantaClausTrips - a chap called Brian - and we could not be any more delighted that we followed his advice.

There was apparently a complaint from a guest the night before we left that the variety of food was poor, and not enough fresh food was available for the kids.

I mean ... wow! Here we are 140km inside the Arctic Circle, with at least a foot of snow covering everywhere across a rather barren land, and somebody was expecting fresh fruit and caviar!

Enough of the nonsense, this was simply brilliant. Ian, the hotel manager, was the most visible of hotel managers, ever! Sue on reception could not have been more helpful. Our Transun rep - Greta - was warming, friendly and bloody helpful.

We stayed in a log cabin, which as we were told, was small, but warm, comfortable, and all that we needed for a 4-night stay in Wonderland. To be frank, we only used it to snooze and sleep in, oh and have the occasional Sauna, but just the romance of staying in a log cabin in Lapland was great. Our photos are brill.

The excursions that were included in the package ('Sleep in Heavenly Peace' package) were exceptional, and in hindsight, probably all that we needed. We did book up a couple of extra excursions, but with all the fun available at the hotel, anybody looking to book their holiday for 2011 will probably need to strongly consider whether they book additional excursions or not.

Santa was fab. We all tugged his beard, and he was the real Santa. The private family trip to see Santa is the most amazing family moments to treasure, and completely to die for.

The Huskies, the reindeer, the skidoos, the snow, Santa - everything was just brilliant.

From the kid's eyes, this was simply perfect and magical all rolled into a 5 day stay!
