This trip is packed with outdoor adventures from start to finish. Your venue for the day is Kittila's Snow Village, which is home to an ice hotel, an ice bar and an ice chapel. You'll have plenty of time to explore the igloo-like hotel rooms and admire the impressive sculptures that have been carved from frozen water.
When you’re ready to play in the snow, it’s a case of taking your pick from the huge choice of things to do. Little ones can zoom down the snow slide and drive a miniature Skidoo. Plus, family-friendly activities like reindeer and husky sleigh rides are guaranteed to get you into the festive spirit.
What’s more, there’s an indoor activity area for decorating cookies, and a restaurant where you can warm up over lunch. The highlight of the day, though, is meeting Santa Claus in his log cabin, deep in the woods.
For a full rundown of what’s in store, take a look at the itinerary.
It’s worth noting, the day is yours to enjoy at your own pace, and you can do the activities in whatever order you like.
Fly to Kitilla
You'll land in Kittila around midday and pick up your snowsuit and boots. Then, it's onto the Snow Village, where your action-packed day takes place.
Kittila's Snow Village is home to an ice hotel with igloo-like rooms and impressive sculptures carved from frozen water, an ice bar and an ice chapel.
Reindeer Sleigh Ride
Climb into a sleigh and let Rudolph and Co. guide you past frozen lakes, white hills and snow-dusted woodland.
Hop on the back of a husky-led sleigh and you'll be taken on a short tour of the Lappish countryside. There'll be time to find out how the dogs are trained, plus Santa's elves have an interesting story to tell about how the huskies saved Christmas.
Buckle up for the drive of your life. After learning to manoeuvre your snowmobile, you can head off at full-throttle to explore the winter wilderness. For this activity, you'll need your driving license.
You'll get a real taste of tradition when you meet a Lapland local. You can poke around his tent, and listen as he tells age-old stories and legends about the region.
Get your festive wishlist at the ready because now's your chance to meet Santa and tell him what you want for Christmas. The elves will help you impress him by teaching you how to say hello in Finnish.
You can't come to Lapland without playing in the snow. Start a friendly snowball fight, build a snowman, try snowshoeing, or learn how to drive a miniature Skidoo. Afterwards, warm up by the campfire with hot berry juice.
When your day comes to an end, Santa's elves will take you to the airport for your flight home.
