Lapland Holiday Itinerary
DAY 1 - WELCOME TO A WINTER WONDERLAND
You'll be greeted by one of Santa's little helpers when you arrive in Levi. They'll make sure you're wrapped up nice and warm in thermal suits and boots. Your afternoon is at leisure to take in the enchanting wintry scenery. Explore the bustling resort centre, which has a cosmopolitan feel and everything you'd expect to find in a ski resort. A handful of supermarkets, gift shops and several restaurants, plus plenty of bars and a nightclub.
DAY 2 - OUTDOOR ADVENTURES
A morning filled with adventure awaits. Experience the thrill of dashing through the snow on a sleigh behind Santa's reindeer. Enjoy a short breathtaking ride on a sledge pulled by a team of sled dogs/huskies. Take in the Christmas-card scenery on a snowmobile ride with the kids in tow on their own sleigh or just enjoy racing down the hill on the sledge. Fill your afternoon with an optional excursion of your choosing or head out to play in the snow. Tonight is kids' disco night so join us if you'd like to for an evening of fun and dancing.
DAY 3 - CHRISTMAS STARTS HERE
Today's the day you get to meet Santa Claus and have a big Christmas party. Time in Santa's Park is the most magical part of your holiday. You'll meet Santa Claus, who has a gift for every child. Warm up with some hot chocolate from Mrs Claus while making Christmas cards, listen to a mystical tale from the Shamen in his teepee or visit the elves to decorate some gingerbread and make a tree decoration. There's also time to meet the reindeer and send a letter from Santa's Post Office. You're in for a treat this evening as we all get together for a lovely three course dinner buffet and then the main attraction it's kids party night, Lapland style! Our Kids' Club reps with their special guests Lollo & Bernie will help you all get in the festive mood with games and music to end your holiday with a bang.
DAY 4 - TIME TO RETURN
Soak up the fairy-tale atmosphere before heading off to the airport.
The sleigh ride, husky sledge trip and snowmobile rides are short experiences of around a couple of minutes each. If you enjoy your ride you can buy longer rides when in resort, to do in your free time.

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.
