Lapland Holiday Itinerary

Day 1

Fly from your chosen UK airport to Kittila where you'll be taken to your hotel and greeted with a welcome drink and 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 really starts. After breakfast, enjoy an exhilarating morning of tobogganing, snowmobiling and husky and reindeer sleigh rides through the winter woodlands with warming log fires and hot drinks along the way. After lunch, the afternoon is at your leisure, with the chance to sample some of our optional trips following this morning's taster sessions and for the kids, an opportunity to join in the supervised fun and games at the fantastic Hotel Levintunturi Activity Centre, which includes a bouncy castle and ball pool. Regain your breath and recount all your day's adventures over supper at your hotel.

Day 3

Today includes an unforgettable visit to Santa's Post Office, where you can post Santa your Christmas present lists, see his sorting office and watch his elves making toys in their workshop! Plus, join in our magical Arctic Circle Ceremony to initiate you into the Arctic wilderness and collect your gift of a Lappish bell. Lunch and supper back at your hotel. As night approaches, the excitement mounts for our sumptuous Christmas Gala Feast, as well as a disco and a visit from Santa Claus himself, along with a sleighful of gifts for everyone!

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.
