As the perfect Christmas treat for the young and young-at-heart, experience an authentic white Christmas adventure beyond the beautiful Arctic Circle with an independent tour which encapsulates the warm and fuzzy festivities that surround this special time of year. For a Christmas Eve treat, imagine having the opportunity to travel deep into the forest to visit Santa’s secret hideaway, with woodland animals guiding the way along a winding trail to his small hut set amongst a gorgeous pine backdrop. On arrival, you’ll be greeted with a warm welcome and whisked off to adorn the gorgeous Christmas tree with Santa’s helpers who are just as excited about the festive season as you! Afterwards – brace yourself for an exhilarating test drive experience behind one of Santa’s very own reindeer. You’ll glide through the snowy landscape with glee and at the end of the ride you’ll be rewarded with an official International Reindeer Driver’s Licence! Return to your luxury hotel after your exciting visit to Santa, and immediately look forward to the upcoming traditional Finnish Christmas buffet dinner that will be served that evening. As a special surprise for all, Santa will be sure to take time out from his uber-busy schedule and make a special appearance after the dinner to meet all the rosy-cheeked children – naughty or nice! What a wonderful way to end an exhilarating day, all in preparation for the big day ahead. Come Christmas morning, you’ll have the option of attending a wonderfully traditional Lutheran church service delivered in Finnish to start your busy day off in a calm and wholesome manner. Afterwards, you’ll get the chance to experience a white Christmas with a difference at the adventurous Snowfun Park! For all you thrill-seekers, enjoy the pure excitement of tobogganing, snowmobile safaris, forest scooters, kicksled, skiing plus feel free to join in on a game of ice golf or snow hockey. For those who are more relaxed, simply chill out with a spot of ice fishing or kick back by the campfire with a hot drink. The choice is all yours! The fun continues on Boxing Day where you’ll discover the very intriguing Arktikum – a one-of-a-kind museum and science centre dedicated to the history, culture and traditions of the Arctic region. To top off your trip, you’ll then head to Santa Claus’ Village for handicraft shopping and a stop by Santa’s very own post office to send off a postcard back to home – as of course you’ll want to brag to your loved ones about the most wonderful experience you’ve had in Santa’s Lapland!
