What’s the ultimate Christmas holiday? This is what we’re always asked, and we’re actually on a mission to find out for ourselves! Of course, it truly comes down to the individual, but there really is no better festive getaway than a visit to Lapland in search of the real Santa Claus. It’s the most popular destination around the world for people looking for that true Christmas adventure, so naturally there are some great packages that include everything you’ll want from your Christmas holiday. Here are some of the features included when you book an official Lapland holiday to visit Santa.
Flights – When you book a package trip to Lapland, your plane tickets will be included, with the option to fly from almost any major UK airport. You will usually get discounts for advance bookings.
Accommodation – Depending on your provider, you will have a choice of hotels. It’s wise to select the package with the best range of accommodation, as this is a good indication that the elves organising the trip are among Santa’s most reputable!
Meeting Santa – Of course, you need to make sure your visit to Santa himself is included in your package! This is what makes the trip unique and memorable for most kids. Some providers will make this into a bigger adventure, including some which offer a snowmobile search for Santa’s cabin.
Sleigh Rides – Another classic staple of family trips to Lapland, sleigh rides are essential for most visitors! You can enjoy rides pulled by huskies, and even travel like Father Christmas himself in a sleigh pulled by a reindeer team!
Igloo Visits – There are many real igloos in Lapland which are another great thing for the kids (and adults) to experience. They might be a little bigger than you’re imagining!
More Activities – There really are tons of things to fill the rest of your time on a Lapland visit. Tobogganing, snow hockey and even ice fishing are all fun and safe festive activities that the whole family get enjoy. Make sure your package includes all your top picks when you book.
