Santa in Lapland

Cathy's verdict
Lapland is magical year-round but add Santa to the Northern Lights, deep snow and husky sledding and it’s a child’s dream. With regional flights and special offers for single parents, trips needn’t blow the Christmas budget either, despite packing in activities galore and a private meeting with the big man himself.

Santa’s Lapland says

Lapland is one of the world’s truly magical places, where the snow lies deep and crisp and even, reflecting the shimmering wonders of the Northern Lights. It’s a place where anything seems possible and childhood dreams can become reality – what a wonderful treat for a single parent to share with their children.

  • chance to see Northern Lights
  • loads of activities included
  • regional airport departures

Create your own magical family memories with a two or three night Christmas Santa break in Santa’s Lapland, crossing the Arctic Circle into Santa’s secret homeland hidden deep in the snowy forest.

You can look forward to reindeer sleigh-rides, the excitement of husky sledding and snowmobiling, fun and laughter with Santa’s cheeky elves in the Igloo Fantasia experience, and the glittering charm of this beautiful winter wonderland. Best of all, you are guaranteed a private meeting with the big man himself, in his hideaway log cabin deep in the snowy woods.

We have a special offer for single parents (and single grandparents!) at Santa’s Holiday Club. This four-star hotel is in a central village location and has a fantastic indoor pool with slides and chutes plus a children’s play area and free use of toboggans.
