Introduction to Transun
Transun is an independent, specialist tour operator. We operate travel experiences to interesting destinations all over the world, but especially in northern Europe. We’re based in offices in Oxford, although we’ve also had premises in London and in the North of England in recent years.
We’ve been in the travel business for nearly thirty five years – and not many companies can say that. We’ve operated to a wide range of destinations in that time and have built up heaps of experience at designing and delivering specialist holidays for our loyal clients from all over the UK. We aim to give you the best service possible, from your first enquiry through to your time on holiday.
The main focus of our current programmes is the Arctic region of Scandinavia where you can visit Santa in Lapland or witness the spectacular northern lights inside the arctic circle in northernmost Finland and Sweden. These regions also play host to a range of other experiences including husky safaris, snowmobile expeditions, traditional excursions by reindeer sleigh and nights in an igloo. Throughout our history our guests have travelled with us to a range of destinations across Europe and we have long had a reputation for quality holidays in Croatia. We have also operated long haul programmes to Thailand and the Far East and to the Seychelles. We’ll advertise new and returning destinations on this website as they become available.
Transun are proud to offer the widest selection of departure airports from the UK to Lapland - more than any other operator. Our direct charter service, exclusive to Transun, operates to Enontekio Airport in the far north of Finland. We fly from 18 UK airports, making it easier for you to reach Lapland from your local airport.
Amid the forests and fells of Northern Finland, you can experience the Arctic Circle at its unspoiled best. Here, on the edge of Europe's last wilderness, is a land of amazing natural phenomena. In winter, you can witness the Northern Lights, nature's most memorable spectacle, while enjoying exhilarating activities like 'mushing' a husky sled or driving your own snowmobile across the Arctic tundra. Or perhaps try your hand at cross country skiing or snowshoeing, the age-old traditional methods of exploring the stunning Arctic terrain.

Far away from the concrete ski hotels and glaring commercialism of mass market winter resorts, true Lapland is a land of tranquility, stunning natural beauty and warm and welcoming communities. The region perches on the edge of a vast wilderness that has nurtured the nomadic Sami people for generations and is just waiting for you to explore. We offer holidays to see Father Christmas in his authentic home, a land of legends and magic, heading out into the frozen forests by snowmobile, husky sled or reindeer sleigh. You can explore our full selection of Santa trips or our wider range of Finland holidays.
