Christmas In Lapland

Christmas In Lapland 2017/2018

Our Ready Steady Snow adventure will fill you and the kids with Christmas wonderment, Lapland style! Your base is the glittering, fun packed wintersports centre of Levi, right in the heart of Finnish Lapland below the majestic Levi Fell Mountain.

Lapland Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 -  Fly from your UK airport to Kittila where you’ll be taken to your hotel and greeted with a welcome drink. You’ll have some time to explore the resort before dinner. Watch out for Rudi and Hal on your travels... and be sure to get a good night’s rest so you’re raring to go in the morning.
Day 2  - This is when the magic of Lapland really begins! You'll head out into unspoilt woodlands to enjoy tobogganing, followed by reindeer sleigh, husky dog sled and snowmobile mini ride experiences. Then you'll be initiated into the arctic wilderness with our magical Arctic Circle Ceremony. Gather round the campfire and get into the festive spirit, before a traditional Sami guide enlightens you with tales of this traditional ceremony. Your afternoon is free so you could just play in the snow or try out more winter thrills on some of our optional trips – you choose! Then spend the evening carol singing around roaring log fires.
Day 3 - This morning is at leisure to do as you please, then the afternoon brings one of the highlights of your stay- an unforgettable visit to Santa's Post office. Here you'll be able to meet the Elves, see the thriving sorting office, take part in cookie decorating in the Elf Bakery, take a guided tour of an elf's house and maybe even catch a glimpse of the hardworking elves making toys! Then it’s time to enjoy our sumptuous Christmas gala meal, where you can sample a host of traditional Lappish delicacies, before Santa himself arrives complete with a bag full of gifts for everyone! Your day ends with the chance to dance the night away with a fun filled disco.
Day 4  - Breakfast and check out, with a couple of hours free to reflect on all the excitement of your holiday. Depart your hotel for Kittila airport and return flight.
Guests enjoying a four night trip will have an extra day at leisure to explore their resort or try some of the optional excursions. The Gala Feast with Santa will take place on the last night of your trip.

Need To Know

What should I pack?

If you're coming to Lapland for the day, we recommend you wear warm clothes and only take hand luggage on the plane, as we'll lend you a cosy all-in-one thermal suit, as well as boots, gloves, socks and a hat. If you're on a 3 or 4-night trip, we'll still kit you out with all the necessary gear - which is yours for the duration of your holiday - but it's a good idea to bring lots of layers, too.

What’s the weather like?

In December, daytime temperatures generally range from 0 to -20 degrees, but it can fall as low as -40 during a particularly cold spell. You’ll get four to five hours of ‘grey light’ between about 10am and 3pm. The rest of the time it’s dark, but still quite bright because of all the snow. What’s more, all the activity areas are well lit.

What’s the food like?

It depends on where you stay, but most hotels in Lapland put on international buffet spreads. Usually, there’ll be a selection of meat, fish and pasta dishes to choose from, as well as a variety of vegetables and salad. You’ll also find children’s favourites, like chips, meatballs, and burgers on offer. And some places serve Finnish specialities, like smoked reindeer pizza.

Is Lapland suitable for young children?

We don’t recommend our Lapland trips for children under 4-years-old. That’s because the chilly temperatures and types of activities aren’t suited to really little ones. If you do bring toddlers along, though, you’ll need to provide their own thermal clothing.

Do I need insurance?

It’s essential you and your family have the protection you need in case the unexpected happens. What’s more, if you want to take part in any snow sports when you’re away, you’ll need a policy that covers you for these.

Can I drive a snowmobile?

If you want to get behind the wheel of a snowmobile, make sure you bring your full UK driving licence with you. As long as local guides agree, children aged 12 and over can ride as a passenger on your snowmobile. Younger children have to travel in a sleigh pulled by one instead.
