Lapland Holiday Itinerary

23rd December

Fly to Kittila where you’ll be met by our friendly staff and taken to your hotel for a welcome drink and dinner before turning in to dream of what lies ahead on this special trip.

Christmas Eve

This is when the magic of Lapland really comes alive. After breakfast, enjoy an exhilarating morning or wintersports including a husky dog and reindeer sleigh ride through snowy woodlands, with warming log fires and hot drinks along the way. You’ll also participate in our traditional Arctic Circle Ceremony where you are initiated into the Arctic wilderness and, for Santa’s Tinsel Trail guests, mini Lapland Games.

The afternoon all about getting into the Christmas Spirit and what better way to start than with a visit to Santa’s Post Office. You’ll be able to hand deliver your Christmas wish list to the sorting office, before visiting the workshop to see the elves busily making colourful Christmas toys, take part in cooking decorating and learn the Elf song in Elf school.

In the evening you can enjoy singing carols by candle light in the stunning snowy forest – what better way to get you in the mood for tomorrow!

Christmas has finally arrived, and it’s yours to do as you please. You could indulge in some of our optional activities, or simply enjoy taking time out with the family and unwrapping your presents – Christmas is your time.

Merry Christmas!

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.
