VISIT SANTA’S SECRET GROTTO
This trip is made for little ones. Your day starts with an early flight to Rovaniemi, where you’re greeted by Santa’s elves and whisked off to Santa’s Secret Grotto in Rovaniemi’s Santa Park. This cosy winter wonderland is yours to explore, decorated with fairy lights and shopping stalls. You can take your pick of what you get up to during the day, and there’s plenty to choose from…
HEAD TO ELF SCHOOL
The elves are off the shelf on this day trip. Take a ride on the Santa Park Train to see what Santa’s little helpers get up to behind the scenes in the toy factory, then head to Elf School to find out whether you’ve got what it takes to join their ranks. You’ll get a certificate to take home with you, too. Keen bakers can pop over to Mrs Claus’ bakery to decorate gingerbread men, and then the whole family can snuggle up and listen to local Lappish legends in a traditional tent. But the highlight of the day is meeting Santa, so make sure you’ve memorised your Christmas list…
Reindeer and husky sleigh rides, snowmobiling, sledging and mini skidoo rides – with tasters of each you’ll never know how many ways there are to play in the snow until you visit Lapland. And we’ll make sure you can squeeze in as many activities as possible by wrapping you up in a cosy snow suit so you stay warm.
MEET WITH SANTA
No trip to Lapland is complete without meeting Santa, and now’s your chance to do just that. To really impress the big fella, ask the elves how to greet him in Finnish.
