Two days in Santa's homeland jam-packed with excitement. Try out some of the many winter activities and see stunning frozen landscapes on traditional Lappish transport.
DAY 1 - LET THE MAGIC BEGIN
Once you've landed in the wintry wonderland look out for Santa's elves who'll meet you at the airport. It's very chilly so the elves will take you by coach to the locker room to get you into a thermal suit and comfy boots. You'll then head for lunch where you will enjoy a nice hot meal before you're whisked to the activity park where the fun really begins.
FAMILY FUN AT THE ACTIVITY PARK
Now's your chance to race against each other on toboggans down the slopes or simply explore the fantastic scenery. You could even try the kicksleds, a local form of transport and easy for everyone to use so you'll get the hang of them in no time. If it gets a little chilly then visit the shaman in his tent for a mystical tale. Next have a go at tandem skiing, it provides plenty of giggles, and try out snowshoes, they were invented to be able to walk on frosty ground. Have some hot berry juice before hopping aboard a short reindeer sled for a leisurely ride before a team of sled dogs/huskies will take you on a fast-paced ride.
The highlight of the day could be when you and your family have a private meeting with the man himself, Santa Claus!
OPTIONAL EVENING EXCURSION
After resting in your hotel for a while it's up to you if you want to fit in more. Fancy searching for the phenomenal Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)? You can with us.
DAY 2 - CHRISTMAS DELIGHTS COME EARLY
The morning begins with free time so it's up to you whether you relax in your hotel or take an optional excursion. You'll enjoy the hearty lunch at Forest Manor as you'll need energy for the excitement to come in magical Santa Claus Village. Send a letter from Santa Claus, stamped with the special postmark of the Santa Claus Post Office. Cross the Arctic Circle and receive a certificate for doing so. There's a lovely choice of bars and restaurants, the ice bar is a 'cool' place to take a break.
For one last blast of fun you'll be heading off on a snowmobile ride through the dense pine forest taking in the beautiful Lappish countryside.
