Meet Father Christmas in Finnish Lapland from £830 per adult and from £550 per child (under 11 when sharing with 2 adults)
Take a Santa break to Lapland and spend a Yuletide you and your family will always talk about! A Christmas holiday in Finland is an experience you will never forget.
Your base for four-day Santa break is the Harriniva Hotel, a cosy retreat high up in the Arctic Circle, complete with jacuzzis on the riverbank and a private husky farm. The highlight, of course, is a trip to see Santa, a personal encounter that begins with a ride through the snowy forest on a snowmobile sled. Individual families will then be met by an elf and guided up a candlelit path to meet Father Christmas in his private log cabin.
The rest of your stay is given over to optional activities, which range from husky safaris and reindeer sleigh rides to ice fishing trips and snowmobile excursions in the search of Northern Lights. And be sure to make use of the free toboggans that the hotel provides - guaranteed fun for all the family!
