An activity-filled break to the snowy plains of Lapland, this trip takes in everything from husky and reindeer sleigh rides to lessons at Elf School and a meeting with a very merry Father Christmas.

Embark on a magical journey as our honorary elves will meet and greet you at Dublin airport, ready to guide you through a truly enchanting adventure. Santa himself has entrusted them with the joyous task of accompanying you all the way to Lapland. Brace yourself for a flight to Kittila airport, located just beyond the Arctic Circle, where Christmas spirit thrives. During the flight, savour a delightful breakfast while we soar through the wintry skies. And who knows, we might even have some merry surprises on board to add to the joyous atmosphere. We will fly to Kittila airport, which is located north of the Arctic circle and our flying time will be around 3 hours. During the flight you will be served a light breakfast and you never know we may even get to have some fun on board.

Upon our arrival at Kittila airport, you’ll receive complimentary thermal clothing to ensure you stay snug and cosy throughout your stay. Thermal snow suits, boots, socks, gloves, and a warm hat will be bestowed upon everyone, ensuring that you remain warm in the midst of Lapland winter wonderland. Once everyone is dressed in their festive attire, more cheerful elves will whisk you away on a short journey to your delightful hotel, home for the next two nights.

The afternoon is yours to bask in the magic of this extraordinary place. Frolic in the glistening snow, create whimsical snow angels, sculpt jolly snowmen, and engage in playful snowball fights with mischievous elves, spreading laughter and cheer!

As evening falls, relish in the heartwarming ambience as you gather with your family and newfound friends to indulge in a nice meal.

Meals included: breakfast and dinner

After awakening to a delightful breakfast, prepare yourselves for a day filled with enchantments. Santa’s special helpers eagerly await your presence as we embark on a merry quest to find Santa’s secret hiding place. Our jolly elves will rely on your keen eyes and joyful spirits to assist them in this spirited adventure. We’ll journey deep into the mystical forest, where the magic of Christmas thrives. At elf school, you’ll discover the joy and importance of being an elf, followed by a guided tour of their cosy homes, where you may even catch a glimpse of the playful elves in their snug bedrooms. They’ll share merry tales and who knows, they might just invite you to lend a hand in the bustling toy factory. Behold the diligent elves at work in the lively post office sorting letters from children all around the world, and with a dash of luck, we might just be granted a private meeting with Santa himself!

Along our whimsical path, we’ll encounter Rudolph’s friendly companions. Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of reindeer as they share tales of their remarkable lives. To add to the merriment, you’ll be invited to snuggle up in their sleigh as they graciously take you on a gentle ride through the picturesque beauty of nature. And that’s not all – prepare for a speedy ride as you glide through the snow-covered forest on a husky ride, led by these spirited and energetic companions. As if that weren’t enough, we’ll also embark on a thrilling snowmobile ride and engage in a gleeful tobogganing, embracing the spirit or winter joy and adventure.

During the day we’ll take a pause from our merry activities to replenish our energy with a delectable yet comforting lunch. As the afternoon descends upon us, we’ll return to our hotel, allowing you to bask in the enchanting atmosphere and enjoy the surrounding wonders before our evening festive dinner.
