Here, you’ll be shown to your private cabin or suite. The stylish, elegant accommodation will be your base for the experiences, and offers beautifully cosy warmth against the Arctic weather outside. On arrival you will be fitted with your cosy outerwear (snow suit and boots) ready for your adventure!

Relax and settle in, take a walk around with the crisp snow underfoot, take a toboggan and have some fun in the snow before your first dinner in Lapland.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

What our travellers are saying...

Fantastic experience. We joined a tour to find Santa in Finland and it was just perfect. The guides (elves!), reindeers, the whole experience was just superb. Obviously our 3 years old daughter was all around the place, but it felt really good for us adults - it spoke to our inner child. Spoiler: we've also found Santa's cabin. Recommended!

László

We went to Lapland - it is a must! Just the most magical, unforgettable experience with brilliant memories (and fantastic photos) to last a lifetime. My children loved it and I can’t wait to return - hopefully one day with their children.
