3 Days from £919 per adult | £175 per child

Day 1

Having just flown across the Arctic Circle, the children will love being greeted at Ivalo Airport by a reindeer with its Sami handler, and one of Santa's elves, presenting a delightful photo opportunity to capture your family's first few minutes in Santa’s homeland.

A short, comfortable 25-minute coach-ride transfers you to your hotel or cabin in Saariselka, just enough time to see if the children can spot more reindeer or maybe my little log-cabin home through the forests bordering the road.

Time for your 'Michelin-man' impersonations, as we get you fitted with your special complimentary thermal over-suits, boots, gloves and hats.

Then it's fun-time — a chance to explore and get your bearings on arrival in this winter wonderland, make snowmen, borrow the free toboggans or just relax in a fragrant Finnish sauna.

For guests who have booked the great value half-board option, a wonderful first night dinner sets the scene for tomorrow's excitement, whilst those in my Christmas Cabins will enjoy a home-cooked family meal!

Day 2

We will pick you up for the ultimate Christmas adventure, enjoying all the following exciting activities at some point throughout the day, all of which are included in the prices.

Husky Sled Ride, where the children get to ride with a parent (and shout 'mush mush!' at every opportunity!), and grown-ups can all take a turn at actually 'driving' your own sled! Imagine your sled, drawn by five or six eager huskies, straining at the leash and eager to run, then released and you're off! Racing across the snow and through the woods is the most perfect way to experience Lapland’s winter wonderland.

Reindeer Sleigh Ride — meet your reindeer and your local Sami guide then take a wonderful 7-10 minute ride into the picturesque woods, with the ‘swish’ of the runners across the snow, and children and parents cuddled together under blankets in the sleigh, arriving at a very secret location.

Elves and Igloo Fantasia is hidden away in the woods and only reached by reindeer sleigh and once there, join in the fun and games with Santa's Elves in their Igloo Wonderland before visiting Santa's Artistic Igloo and admiring the magnificent ice sculptures and enjoying a drink in Santa's ice bar.*

Meet Santa's very special Huskies and Reindeer in Santa's Elves and Igloo Fantasia, guess their names and share a cuddle, so don’t forget to bring your camera.

Lunch is also included to recharge your batteries for the afternoon. This will be a simple and warming 2-course meal with plenty of hot berry juice, squash, tea and coffee also available.

A host of Snow and Ice Fun Activities are provided for you to enjoy such as ice-fishing, snow-hockey, kick-sledding (a crazy cross between a scooter and a toboggan!), tandem skiing, mini skidoo rides for the children and Santa's favourite – tobogganing.

See your children's faces light up with wonder, as you fulfil your family's Search for Santa, and meet Santa Claus himself, in an exclusive private family meeting, in his hideaway log-cabin home, with his elves on hand to make you welcome and ensure there is magic in the air!

Refreshments are included too and are available throughout the day, for those times when a few minutes warming up round a crackling log fire is is welcomed.

Finally, back 'home' in your hotel, why not finish the day with a wonderful optional Gala Dinner (included on the half-board option). In Santa's Christmas Cabins meanwhile, a special festive dinner rounds off the day, while you re-live every unforgettable moment of your biggest ever Christmas adventure!

Day 3

Fun-time again, with the chance to thrill to another big adventure, whether pre-booked in the UK or chosen locally the day before from our 'Optional Adventures'. You may have fallen in love with the huskies and want to enjoy an even longer Husky Sled ride,or relax on Rudolph’s Reindeer Run, or perhaps take off on a Snowmobile Safari for high-octane thrills – there are plenty of options to choose from.

This morning also gives you a chance to browse the village's souvenir shops, to choose from their range of traditional hand-made Lappish items and clothes, Christmas gifts and toys.

Santa's helpful team will collect you from your doorstep by coach for the short ride to the airport to catch your flight home, to a chorus of fond farewells!
