With the May half term holiday out of the way and summer holidays all finalised, now is the time to book a trip to see Santa in his Lapland home this winter to ensure the best availability for departure dates and accommodation. With the increase in demand for Santa holidays, these magical breaks often sell out quickly. This winter, independent tailor-made tour operator Best Served Scandinavia offers its widest choice of Santa breaks with four different itineraries available in Finnish Lapland ranging from a luxurious wilderness retreat to the option of a night in a glass igloo.
New this year is a 4 day tailor made break to the Finnish town of Rovaniemi also known as Lapland’s Christmas Capital. Direct flights, transfers, 3 nights at Ounasvaaran Lakituvat in a cosy log cabin, a visit to Santa’s Village, husky sledding and a snowmobile ride to a local reindeer farm are all included in this magical break. Early booking is recommended with a free husky toy for children under 12 for all bookings made before the end of June.
The quiet village of Luosto in Finnish Lapland is home to Santa’s Hotel Aurora, a cosy hotel ideally located for Northern Lights viewing. This year, the Snow and Santa in Finnish Lapland break includes a magical night in a glass-domed igloo where it’s possible to catch a display of the Northern Lights. There’s also a private visit from Santa in the igloo and a guided reindeer excursion.
