Arctic adventures and a private meeting with Santa

In December, take the kids on the trip of a lifetime, and watch their faces light up when they see Santa in a true Winter Wonderland.

But let’s rewind: from the first minute, this trip to Lapland feels extraordinary. Step aboard one of Newmarket Holidays’ privately chartered planes, which fly from a wide range of regional airports, and experience the excitement as you fly to the Arctic Circle. Little ones will want to press their noses up against the windows to watch the scenery move from the rolling fields of the UK to the snow-capped trees of Lapland. Touching down in Pajala, a Newmarket Holidays exclusive, you’ll find yourself in remote Swedish wilderness, being able to take in the crisp, snowy surroundings before you’re whisked off to the next part of the day.

Now the real excitement starts. Buckle up as you ride to Santa’s village, where you’ll have the place completely to yourself! You can spend the afternoon exactly as you want: race huskies across frozen fields, zoom through pine forests on a snowmobile ride and feel the true spirit of Christmas on a reindeer ride, all illuminated by red lanterns, as well as the orange glow of a winter sunset.

Unbelievably, this is all before lunchtime! You’ll have a chance to rest and take a break, enjoying a hearty lunch and a steaming berry juice before heading back out into the snow for some more fun. Then, finally, it’s time for the big event. What the kids have been waiting for this whole time. You’ll be taken down a secret path in the woods, to add to the mystery of the big man in red, before finally having a private meeting with Santa Clause. Whether they want to sit on his lap and chat, or reel off all the reasons they should be on his ‘nice’ list, the choice is all theirs.

With this magical meeting over, you’ll then be flown back to the UK. The little ones will have memories that will last a lifetime, and you’ll all be pleasantly exhausted from a fun-filled day.

Your Itinerary

View a full breakdown of your holiday to help you plan your trip

  • Fly direct to Pajala in Swedish Lapland, Santa’s special airport, on a specially chartered flight. Yours will be the only flight to Pajala on this day as this location is exclusive to Newmarket Holidays and numbers are strictly limited, which means you'll have plenty of time to enjoy all the activities on offer throughout your magical day.

  • Your hosts will meet you, before you take a short, warm and comfortable coach journey to Santa's Village. Then after a quick change into the cosy, thermal garments provided, you'll head out into the snow split into groups.

  • 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 snowmobile experience. Between the organised activities, you'll have quality time as a family 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 lunch. Warming hot berry juice and water 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.

Further Information

  • 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 rise above freezing, and can sometimes get as low as -35C. If the temperature becomes so cold that activities become unsafe, we may move the location or time of those activities. Due to the very cold temperatures that can be experienced in Lapland, this trip is not recommended for anyone aged 4 years and under.

    Thermal wear for all sizes is provided at Santa's Village for your use during the day, but we recommend that you bring a suitable hat, gloves and outerwear (plus wear lots of layers) for travel between the aircraft and the village. Footwear is also available if you do not have your own boots. Please note: wellington boots are not considered suitable footwear as unlikely to have enough grip for the slippery conditions.



  • No catering is provided on the outbound flights from the UK. A traditional hot Swedish lunch will be provided at the village, however there are very limited choices, so if you have fussy eaters in your party we recommend taking your own food and some snacks with you. Hot berry juice will be available throughout the day. Light meals will be provided for your inbound flight.

    Due to the remoteness of the location, we are unfortunately unable to fulfil any special dietary requirements. We'd therefore kindly ask that any customers who suffer from allergies also take 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 and you should not purchase “Duty Free” liquids at your UK airport.

  • Visit to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.

  • Please make sure that your travel insurance has adequate cover for any activities you may wish to participate in while on holiday (this may need to include winter sports cover).

You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Blackpool, 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.
