Imagine spending the day in Santa's kingdom - flying from an airport near you - and still being home in time for supper! On our Walking in a Winter Wonderland day break, we take you to a magical location in the far north of Finnish Lapland, close to a vast snow-covered wilderness and a million miles from other overcrowded and over commercialised Lapland destinations. Here you will experience a magical and unforgettable search for Santa's secret hideaway and each family will have an opportunity to make a private visit to talk with him in his cabin. Plus, you'll have a chance to sample reindeer sleigh rides, snowmobiles and husky dog sleds.

We fly to Enontekio airport, from where this magical day break takes you deep within the Arctic landscapes. Our price includes the protective warmth of a thermal suit and boots (essential in a region where the average December temperature ranges between -7C and -35C) but please ensure that you bring additional scarves, hats and suitable gloves. You can experience a wide range of taster activities. Enjoy a sled journey, being drawn by an eager team of huskies and an altogether calmer reindeer sleigh trip. The day break also includes a snowmobile trip when adults with a full UK driving licence have the opportunity to drive through the silent snowscapes (children pulled in a sleigh behind guide). All major activities take place on a frozen lake or river. Your Transun representative will guide you, in order to make the most of your time in the resort.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do with my belongings on a day break?
When you collect your thermal suits and boots, you will be given a bag in which you can store your outdoor coats and shoes that you have travelled in. Please ensure you take anything with you that you may require during the day, plus your valuables such as money and passports. There is no secure storage for valuables. You will collect your bag at the end of the day when you change out of your thermal suits. On some occasions it may be necessary that these bags are taken with you.
What can I expect for lunch on a day break?
For those clients travelling on our all-inclusive day breaks, there will be a two-course lunch of a starter and main course buffet, which includes kids’ and vegetarian options. Typical dishes are soup for starters, followed by jacket potatoes with a choice of fillings and pasta.
