Meet Father Christmas on a festive, family holiday to Lapland

Take your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews on a day trip they'll never forget as you journey 100 kilometres above the Arctic Circle to a sparkling landscape of snowy forests. For here, in the remote heart of Swedish Lapland, you'll find Pajala - the secret home of the real Santa Claus, his reindeer and his happy team of helpers.

For a few precious days in December, you can fly direct to Lapland on our specially chartered flight - the only 'Santa' flight into Pajala on that day - for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a natural winter wonderland that's as far away from the everyday, increasingly commercial Christmas celebration as you could ever hope to find.

  • Exclusive festive flights
  • Discovering the still, white wilderness of Swedish Lapland
  • Family fun in the snow
  • Time to enjoy organised activities throughout the day
  • A host of treasured memories to cherish

Fascinating fact: Legend has it that Santa's workshop lies at the North Pole, but you'll find the great man waiting to greet you at home when you visit Lapland.

Don't forget: Your warmest hats, scarves and gloves, and (of course) a letter to give to Father Christmas!

You say: "Every single thing was perfect. It felt literally like walking through the wardrobe into Narnia. Made my eight-year-old's dreams come true. He said he was so happy he could cry."

Your Itinerary

A treat for children of all ages!

Fly direct to Pajala on a specially chartered flight to Swedish Lapland. This will be the only 'Santa' flight to Pajala on this day and numbers are strictly limited, which means you'll have plenty of time to enjoy all the activities on offer throughout the magical day.

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

After a quick change into the cosy, thermal garments provided, you'll head out into the snow. Enjoy a magical ride in a traditional reindeer-drawn sleigh, a trip through the countryside on a dog-sled pulled by real huskies and a thrilling ride on a snowmobile. Between the organised activities, you'll have time to enjoy the snow, with toboggan rides, snowman building and snowball fights!

Once you've worked up an appetite, head into the welcoming warmth of the main building, and tuck in to a delicious two-course lunch. Warming hot berry juice and biscuits will also be available throughout the day.

But the highlight of the day will surely come as you set foot on the 'secret path' through the forest, and follow the twinkling lanterns to Santa's log cabin home. Father Christmas will be waiting there to greet you personally; the perfect end to a perfect, magical day.

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.

Temperature

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.

Meals

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.

Airport development fees

An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Blackpool, Durham Tees Valley, Newquay and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between £5 and £10 per person. Please visit the airport's website for further information.
