A selection of short holidays and day breaks to suit you

For an unforgettable family holiday

You hear the pitter patter of excited feet as your sleigh pulls up to a small cabin in the woods. The air is crisp here but a warm glow radiates from inside. The children creak open the door… there he is! His boots are dark and heavy, his jacket the deepest red they have seen, his long snow white beard leads their eyes up to his jolly smile, which asks 'so what would you like for Christmas?'.

Meeting Father Christmas in his true Lapland home is an experience your children will treasure forever. And our Lapland holidays offer much more than just meeting the grand old man himself: mush a team of husky dogs, drive a snowmobile across a frozen lake and even see the Northern Lights on our holidays to Finland!

Ride snowmobiles, reindeer sleighs and husky sleds through Santa's very own kingdom. And don't forget your private family meeting with Father Christmas himself!

  • Located in exclusive wilderness locations

In the far north of Lapland

In the far north of Finnish Lapland, the small and quiet village of Hetta is nestled away amidst miles of forested snowscapes set alongside dramatic Lake Ounasjärvi. The vast wilderness expanses of this region have long been traversed by nomadic Sámi tribes, the indigenous local people; and many Sámi families are still resident among the local community. The village has an interesting museum that depicts the time-honoured Sámi way of life and a beautiful church, with a distinctive, slender belltower. We offer a range of accommodation options in Hetta to suit your requirements. 

A quaint little Lappish village perched on the banks of a frozen river, deep inside the Arctic Circle, Karesuando provides a tranquil, picturesque and unspoiled backdrop for your Arctic activities. The main village sits on the Swedish side of the river Muonio, home to the Arctic Star hotel whilst the warm and welcoming Davvi Arctic Lodge is situated on a fellside just into Finland. The village has an attractive church - the most northerly in Sweden - as well as a handful of local shops and amenities.

Brrrr! It can be cold!

True Lapland is a wonderful, authentic wilderness location and there is little wonder Santa has chosen it for his home. But please keep in mind that when it comes to visiting Santa there, you are flying deep into the Arctic Circle in the height of winter when weather conditions can at times be adverse

Please remember that you are travelling to the Arctic Circle where temperatures can plummet to levels colder than in the UK. In December 2015, some of our Santa guests in Finland experienced temperatures of around -35C. As most of your activities are based outside, we do supply a thermal suit for everyone (up to size 48) but please ensure you bring a sufficient supply of hats, waterproof gloves, snoods/balaclavas, thermal socks and other warms clothes to ensure all members of your party are wrapped up nice and warm, especially children. There is a short, helpful video on suitable clothing in Lapland on the Transun Facebook page.
