Escape to the stunning snowy wilderness of Finnish Lapland for a festive winter break. Spend your nights in a unique Arctic Treehouse, on the edge of a tall forest with a glass front overlooking its surroundings and offering uninterrupted views of the northern lights. Finnish Lapland is the home of Santa Claus, so get into the Christmas spirit on this short holiday by visiting Santa Park (tickets included) and follow Santa's elves into the snow for an excursion out into the Santa Claus Secret Forest, Joulukka, to join Elf School, visit the Elf Command Centre and meet the main man in red himself.
Fly to Rovaniemi and transfer to the Arctic Treehouse Hotel for your three-night stay in a double room. Keep your eyes open as darkness falls as the aurora borealis can often be seen on clear nights from your Treehouse. (D)
This holiday includes entrance tickets to Santa Park, home to the man in red and a magical place to spend a few hours. Today join classes at Elf School, sample the biscuits made in Mrs Gingerbread's kitchen, explore the Ice Gallery, take a ride on the Magic Train, cross the Arctic Circle and meet Santa himself to share your festive wishes. The whole park has been decorated and designed so intricately that it's a truly wonderful winter experience for all ages. (B,D)
Today head out into the wilderness with Santa's Elves in search of the Secret Forest, Joulukka. Join in with Elf School and, after you've graduated, follow your classmates along the hidden Fairytale Path through the woods to reach the Elf Command Centre for a peek inside the place where all the elves are preparing for Christmas. If you've been good this year, you'll also have the chance to meet Santa himself. Today's activities include gingerbread decoration, graduating with a diploma from Elf School, hot drinks by an open log fireplace and a gift from Santa for every child. (B,D)
