Lapland’s a place where Christmas dreams come true. It’s here where you’ll find Santa Claus’ homeland, a fairy-tale land with cosy log cabins dotted across the woods and miles of pine forests covered in a thick blanket of snow. If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas getaway, then look no further, Lapland is top of the list.
Trips to Lapland are jam-packed with all kinds of Christmas activities imaginable.
Husky Sled Ride
You’ll be in husky heaven as you are led through the stunning wintry landscape by a team of enthusiastic huskies. Adults will even have the amazing opportunity to actually drive their own sled! At the end of the ride there will be time to have a cuddle with the huskies and learn how they’re trained.
It’s better than school at home! Children can enrol into Elf School where they learn what it takes to be one of Santa’s little helpers. Once they qualify they’ll receive a special certificate.
Experience the thrill of driving a snowmobile through the breath-taking countryside and over frozen lakes. A snowmobile adventure is perfect to get off the beaten track and appreciate Lapland’s untouched landscape. For something a little bit more magical, embark on a snowmobile adventure at night and if you’re lucky, you may even spot the mysterious northern lights.
Arctic Wildlife Park
Here you’ll have the chance to get up close and personal with Arctic natives such as reindeer, wolves, and polar bears! You can observe the otters and boars tucking into their dinner.
Reindeer Sleigh Ride
No trip to Lapland would be complete without a reindeer sleigh ride; the local guide will take you on a short journey through the picturesque Lappish countryside. You can even visit a reindeer farm where you’ll find out everything about how these festive animals are looked after.
Santa’s Post Office
Letters that are sent to Santa from children all over the world end up here, so the elves have an enormous job handling all the letters. You can send letters from Santa’s post office to absolutely anywhere in the world, so sit by the fireplace and write a letter to your friends and family back home. Your letter will even get its own special Santa stamp on it, which you can’t get anywhere else.
Obviously, you can’t visit Santa’s homeland without meeting the big man himself! So get your Christmas list at the ready, as you’ll meet him in a traditional Lappish log cabin, there will most certainly be magic in the air!
Skiing may not be on the agenda for the typical holiday to Lapland, however, it’s easy to learn how to ski here because it’s rarely crowded. Levi is known as the ‘official ski resort of Santa Claus’ and with over 65 miles of slopes and 26 lifts, it’s ideal if you’re new to skiing. However, there are more challenging slopes if you’re an experienced skier. Along the way you’ll come across some charming little huts where you can stop off for a rest.
Keep your fingers crossed that you catch a glimpse of the spectacular Northern Lights during your stay in Lapland. Colours can vary from green, pink, purple and orange, this ensures a truly unique experience that you’ll never forget.
Make your child’s dreams come true by visiting Lapland for a truly magical experience.
