There’s little that can match the thrill of your child’s meeting with Father Christmas. We carefully organise these trips so that the search for Santa is the centrepiece of a wonderful stay in Lapland. Nothing can beat the excitement of setting off by snowmobile into the snowy forest, wrapped up against the cold air, in search of Santa’s hideaway log cabin. Of course, he’ll know your children by name and he’ll give them a present or two in anticipation of the big day itself. Add to this encounters with Santa’s reindeer, a stirring sled safari pulled by a team of huskies, and all kinds of fun in the snow - this three-night short break in Lapland is a Christmas holiday we’re sure you’ll never forget.

There are few experiences quite as exhilarating as driving a snowmobile through Arctic snowscapes. Your shortbreak includes a Snowmobile Adventure amid the fells, forests and frozen lakes of Europe's last wilderness. Obviously, with such powerful machines, strict rules apply and you must hold a full driving licence to take the controls. For safety reasons, children ride in a sledge pulled by your guide's snowmobile. But youngsters who want to drive a snowmobile themselves can try out our supervised kids' snowmobile track during your Snow Fun activities.
Your Snowmobile Adventure is only part of your three-night break with Transun and there is so much more included. From a magical Search for Santa to a Husky Experience your short break will be filled with magical experiences.

Frequently Asked Questions
What clothing do I need?
We provide you with an all-in-one thermal suit and boots on arrival on all of our trips. It is also essential that you bring a warm hat, scarf and gloves. We recommend that you visit the mybooking area of the Transun website (www.transun.co.uk/my-booking) for further details regarding clothing. In the case of thermal suits, please note that exceptional sizes may not be available. Those needing thermal suits outside the usual children’s sizes and adult small/medium/ large range are recommended to buy their own, before travelling. Minimum child sizes: 90cm suit and 25/26 boots. Maximum adult sizes: 48” chest and 47/48 boots. The following guidelines are, in our opinion, a minimum requirement to ensure maximum comfort and enjoyment during your tour: • Layer One: Thermal underwear or long-sleeved top and leggings, woollen tights, socks. • Layer Two: Fleece or jumper and trousers (cotton or fleece i.e. jogging bottoms), woollen socks. • Top Layer: Balaclava, hat, scarf, all-in-one suit (provided), gloves or mittens, boots (provided). When choosing your clothing, we recommend you: • Take lots of extra gloves, socks and scarves. • Wear lots of thin loose fitting layers so you can add or remove layers as required. • Avoid denim and other restrictive clothing, the best insulation is provided from wool. • Select a hat similar to a balaclava or one that has flaps that can be fastened to cover your ears. • Wear thermal boots too big which allows for extra socks. • Wear a pair of thin gloves under a thicker pair. • Use hot pads, which you insert into your gloves and boots, and provides useful protection against the cold. • Avoid water-based creams or balms on your face, lips and hands. • The temperature can drop rapidly so always ensure you have hats, scarves and gloves with you. • If your hands or feet get wet whilst on activities, change into a dry pair of socks/gloves. • Mittens are better than gloves as they allow warm air to circulate between your fingers.
Will I be safe in Lapland?
The local operators are fully qualified, experienced and safety conscious and their equipment complies with local safety standards. However, it must be borne in mind that the activities are authentically Lappish as we are offering the experience of local adventures. To keep safe, you must ensure you follow the instructions of our guides. Bear in mind that you are visiting an area where Arctic conditions prevail. And please remember that the animal rides are traditional and authentic and use untamed animals. Rides are taken at your own risk, although that risk is very small. Parents and guardians are responsible for the supervision of their own children and those within their party at all times. Before commencing any activities on these tours, each participant will be given clear and full safety instructions. Please ensure you follow these instructions and exercise caution. No one should travel without insurance.
