Tired of waiting for Father Christmas to drop in for his annual, oh so fleeting visit? Then take the family to see him for yourself. Meet Santa, enjoy a husky safari, bake cookies, feed reindeers and more – all on this memorable festive holiday. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you and your children will never forget. What's more, we've also included a thrilling snowmobile safari to help showcase the very best of Finnish Lapland's snow-dusted wilderness.

Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » Arrival

    Air traffic control prevents Santa from living near a major airport, so our flights take you via Helsinki before connecting to the tiny remote town of Kittilä, deep in the Arctic Circle. From here you’ll be transferred to Hotel Harriniva, a cosy wilderness retreat, tucked away on the Finnish border.

    Stay: Hotel Harriniva, Muonio

    Meals: Dinner

  • Day 2 » Reindeers & huskies

    After breakfast, transfer to a local reindeer farm to meet the reindeer, where you will have an opportunity to feed them, learn how to lasso and experience a short reindeer sled ride. After lunch in the ice restaurant, head for the husky farm for a guided tour and a chance to meet the adorable puppies. Then, hop on a sled and enjoy an adrenaline-filled six-kilometre husky safari.

    Stay: Hotel Harriniva, Muonio

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Day 3 » Snowmobiles, cookie baking, snow fun and Santa

    The surrounding wilderness is a magical expanse of fir trees, needles and branches hanging heavy with snow, a white blanket that muffles sound and creates an ambience unique to the Arctic. Pause for a short break to bake Finnish cookies and make a Christmas stocking, before continuing with adventures in the snow. Try your hand at snowshoeing, ice fishing or zooming down the toboggan slope. Children will also have a chance to drive their own mini snowmobile, under supervision of course. And, on one evening, you’ll make your way on a sled through the forest to visit Santa Claus himself in his log cabin. An elf will greet you and lead you to meet Santa, who will hear all your Christmas requests and maybe even hand out a few early presents to well-behaved guests. If you’re especially good, you might just be rewarded with a glimpse of the Northern Lights as you return to the hotel.

    Stay: Hotel Harriniva, Muonio

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Day 4 » Departure

    Say a fond farewell to Santa, Rudolph and the elves as you head for home, filled with Christmas memories.

    Meals: Breakfast

Why are there no ice hotels in Iceland?

It's rather ironic that Iceland, the 'land of ice and fire', contains zero ice hotels. But what it lacks in ice it more than makes up for in national park-framed lodges and private lagoon hotels. Still hankering to sleep on a bed made of snow? The neighbouring Nordics have more than enough.
