Meet Father Christmas on a festive, family holiday to Lapland.

Isn't it wonderful to see kids excited? So excited they're almost fit to burst. Well, imagine their little faces when you tell them they're going to meet the real Santa Claus, at home, in Lapland.

Take your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews on a trip they'll never forget, as you follow trails through snowy forests, meet real husky dogs and ride on sleighs pulled by reindeer.

And, with everything taken care of, you're free to enjoy the trip to the full too.

What more could you ask for this Christmas? Treat yourself and your family: Book today.

Lapland Santa Experience Tour Itinerary

Every moment a memorable experience

Fly direct to Pajala on a specially chartered flight. This will be the only 'Santa' flight to Pajala on this day and numbers are strictly limited so you can appreciate every moment.

Arrive in Pajala, gateway to the heart of Lapland and 80 km beyond the Arctic Circle.

Your Lapp hosts will meet you dressed in traditional Sami costume, before you make a short, warm and comfortable coach journey to Santa's Home.

You'll take the 'secret path' through the forest and follow the twinkling lights to Santa's log cabin home, where he'll be waiting to greet you personally.

Enjoy a traditional sleigh ride pulled by reindeer, a husky-drawn sledge safari, and a thrilling ride on a snowmobile.

With all that excitement, you're guaranteed to work up an appetite, so you can tuck in to a delicious two-course lunch. Hot berry juice will also be available throughout the day, to drink and cup your hands around. And, to help keep you warm and cosy, special thermal garments are supplied when you arrive.

Between the organised activities, you'll also have a chance to enjoy some fun in the snow, with toboggan rides, snowman building and plenty of snowball fights!

Further Information

Snowmobile Adventure

Holders of full driving licences can take the controls. For children under 15, there will be the chance to be pulled along in a sleigh.


Temperatures rarely rises above freezing, and can get as low as -35C. Thermal wear for all sizes is provided at Santa's Village, but we recommend that you bring a suitable hat, gloves and outerwear (preferably layers) for travel between the aircraft and the village. Footwear is also available if you do not have your own boots.


Hot meals will be served on both outbound and inbound flights. Lunch at the village will consist of soup followed by traditional Swedish meatballs or a vegetarian option. Hot berry juice will be available throughout the day. Due to the remoteness of the location we are unable to fulfil any special dietary requirements. We'd, therefore, ask that any customers who suffer from allergies provide their own food for the day. You may also like to bring treats for your children to snack on during the day. Due to airport security, liquids must be purchased after you have passed through Passport Control.

North Yorkshire Family
The day trip to Lapland was very well-organised and ideal for children between 4-11yrs (our children were 6 and 10).
The activities included Reindeer Ride, Husky Ride, Skidoo Ride, Sledging, meeting Santa and lunch. Personally, we felt that there was a little too much "free time" as we were there just for the day, the more activities the better. Maybe the opportunity to do an additional activity would fill the gap.
All staff (both local and from the UK) were very helpful and friendly.
Great memories created.

Darlington Family
The day trip to Lapland was simply amazing. The only critisim I have is that there was no atmosphere on the plane journey from the UK. I have been on a similar trip some years ago and when boarding the plane the air crew and plane were decorated with the Christmas spirit in mind and there were competitions and singing most of the journey. Whilst this did cause me some concern on this trip, when arriving at our destination any concern I had quickly disappeared. The staff who greeted us at the airport quickly changed the tone of the day. From there on, this was an amazing day. The staff could not be more helpful, the village was beautiful and the activities were fantastic. Our walk through the forest to see Santa was beautiful and my 6 year old daughter was just amazed at meeting Father Christmas. To anyone going on this trip in the future, you must go sledging, what fun for all ages!

A very well organised trip. Was impressed by the clothing arrangements, well organised, all sizes clearly displayed, and every item of warm clothing catered for, so no excuse for feeling cold.
