3 Day Breaks - See itinerary below

The classic short break, with all Santa's standard activities and benefits included in a lively and action-packed schedule. The cheeky, fun-loving Saari Elves will also be on hand, to ensure that magic and laughter are part and parcel of your time in Saariselkä. The ‘Santa’s Magic’ break is altogether the perfect choice for families whose time is tight during the busy run-up to Christmas, but who don’t want to miss out on any of the key elements, which are all included.

4 Day Breaks

This slightly longer break also includes all the standard activities and benefits plus an extra day, which enables you to choose from a wide range of Optional Adventures. Try the ever popular ‘Snowmobile Safari’ by day, or the evening ‘Northern Lights Adventure’, or go for a longer ‘Husky Heaven’ sled-ride maybe. There is plenty of choice to make the most of the extra day.

What’s included?

  • A Meeting with Santa in his secret log-cabin home in the woods. He guarantees a private meeting for every family and not a meeting in a restaurant with a coach-load of other families.

  • His Elves & Igloo Fantasia - He wants to tell you about a very special Santa Secret. He has had his helpers build, just for you, two enchanting Igloos, hidden in the forest and never before seen by anyone.

  • Reindeer sleigh-ride - a magical sleigh-ride through the snowy winter woods, the perfect transportation to your Igloo Fantasia experience!

  • Husky-sled-ride - This unforgettable ride is approx. 15-minutes and is not a 2-minute ‘taster’ ride, being driven around a short circular route.

  • Snowmobile sleigh ride - When you come to visit Santa, everyone gets to ride behind a snowmobile during our ‘Search for Santa’, and mini skidoos are available for the children.

  • The resort experience - Santa believes in the true spirit of a Lapland Christmas, with his full-length activities held in magical woodland wilderness locations. He is not so keen on commercialised centres where you may end up killing time in charmless gift-shops and grottos!

3 Day Break

‘Santa’s Magic’ break is altogether the perfect choice for families whose time is tight during the busy run-up to Christmas, but who don’t want to miss out on any of the key elements, which are all included.

Day 1 – Welcome

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

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

Time for your ‘Michelin-man’ impressions, as Santa's helpers get you fitted with your complimentary thermal over-suits, boots, socks, 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 from all Santa's partner hotels or cabins, or just relax in a fragrant Finnish sauna – the choice is yours!

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

Day 2 – Search for Santa

Santa's helpers 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.

Santa's 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 his Elves in their Igloo Wonderland before visiting his 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 My 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 Finnish 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 him 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 welcomed.

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

  • Local charge for drinks applies

Day 3 – Grand Finale

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 the range of 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!

4 Day Break

This slightly longer break also includes all the incredible fun of the 3 day trip PLUS an extra day to enjoy a host of exciting Optional Adventures.

Time for more fun, making the most of your time in Lapland to thrill to another exciting adventure, whether pre-booked in the UK or chosen locally from Santa's range of Optional Adventures. Enjoy an even longer Husky Sled or Reindeer Sleigh Ride, or perhaps take this opportunity for an exciting Family Snowmobile Safari - there are plenty of options to choose from.
