Family Christmas in Lapland
This trip is ideal for families looking for a relaxed and personal getaway around Christmas including a visit to meet Santa in his own cosy cottage. By December, the landscape is covered with white untouched snow. The winter light can be breathtaking and the Northern Lights often appear at this time of year.
Together with our network of local, small-scale activity providers, we’ll help you make the most of your holiday. Special Christmas activities are included in the programme. If you wish to extend your stay additional activities like decoration making, meeting a Sámi reindeer herder and reindeer or husky-sledding are available to add on to the holiday. Wooden cross-country skis, kick-sledges and snowshoes are available to rent. Let us know if you have any special requests and our team will do the best to arrange for them.
