Dine Amidst a Winter Wonderland

Lunch will warm you up after your adventures in the snow, with traditional Lappish food and hot berry juice.

Explore Santa's Village

During your day you will visit Santa's very own village, where you can wander around the various gift shops or stop for a warming drink in one of the bars or restaurants. Don't forget to send a letter at Santa Claus' Post Office, where your letter will be stamped with the Arctic Circle postmark.

Play in the snow

Tips for your trip

Meeting Santa in his winter wonderland is very thirsty work and even though a hearty lunch with drinks is included, you may wish to pick up additional drinks and snacks for your day at your UK departure airport as access to shops during the trip is limited.


Pre-Bookable Snowmobile Safari

Why not pre-book a 30 minute (approx) snowmobile mini safari? Each snowmobile can accommodate a driver and one passenger.

Prices are £49 per person based on 2 adults sharing a snow mobile (£69 for 1 adult). Children 2-15 years can be towed behind in a sleigh (up to a maximum of 8 per sleigh depending on age and size) £25 per child.

NB: The snowmobile safari will take place during the visit to Santa's Village, which will shorten your time there.
