Lapland holidays top the list of magical experiences for families with young children. After all, a trip to the true home of Santa is the perfect way to keep the Christmas magic alive. The wonder on little faces as they take in reindeer, husky dogs and, of course, the big man himself is worth the trip alone!
While Christmas is a big part of Lapland’s identity, that’s not to say that holidays to Lapland are just for kids. This winter wonderland has much for adults to enjoy too, including fantastic opportunities to ski, as well as a wide variety of other winter sports, activities and excursions.
Imagine taking a snow safari through a frozen forest, or skiing with a fairy-lit village at your feet? Whatever you choose to do in Lapland, it will have a magical touch.
Of course, you can’t get more magical than the breathtaking natural wonder that is the Northern Lights. Head high north on a Lapland excursion and, if you’re lucky, you might be blessed with the vision of a red and green streaked night sky.
Levi is one of the best ski spots in Lapland, with fantastic conditions from November to May. Beginner skiers will be in heaven in Levi, thanks to the uncrowded slopes, wide runs and good tuition facilities. Those who are a little more adept on their skis will want to explore off-piste and tackle the World Cup gondola slope. Snowboarders will also find plenty to keep them occupied and off-piste activities include husky, reindeer and snowmobile safaris, sledging, tobogganing, snow shoeing, ice fishing and much more!
For those whose Lapland visit is all about the big man in the red suit, Rovaniemi is the destination to choose. In the heart of the mystical Arctic Circle, the highlight of Rovaniemi is the Santa Claus Village. As well as the Santa Claus Office and the Main Post Office, you can also venture underground into the ice cavern attraction, Santa Park, take a husky or snowmobile ride, or meet Dasher and Dancer at the reindeer farm.
