Northern Lapland Day Trips to Enontekio
Winter Wonderland takes you into True Lapland, home of the Sámi people, and on the edge of Europe’s last unspoiled wilderness. There, you will experience a magical and unforgettable search through the wintry forests 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, a chance to sample reindeer rides, snowmobiles and husky dog sleds.
A day to Remember
We fly to Enontekiö 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 temperatures range between –7C and –35C) but please ensure that you bring additional scarves, hats and waterproof gloves.
A Winter Wonderland
You will enjoy a wide range of short taster activities each lasting a few minutes. Enjoy a sled journey, being drawn by an eager team of huskies, and an altogether calmer reindeer sleigh trip. The daybreak 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 frzen lake or river. Your represetative will guide you throught the day in order to make the most of your time in the resort.
Exciting Snow Activities
As well as all the activities detailed above there will be time to play in the snow, giving children (and parents too!) the chance to enjoy toboganning, snowman-making and snowball fights! A warming two-course lunch is included in the price of your day break.
Search for Santa
The highlight of the day arrives when you venture into the snow-clad surroundings in the hope of finding the hidden log cabin where Santa sometimes stays at this time of the year. After a magical journey across a frozen river, each family will enjoy a private visit with Santa, who will find the time to talk to each child about their Christmas wishes.
Enontikö is situated in Finland near the borders of Norway and Sweden.
So far north the pine and spruce trees give way to the lower growing birch trees and the open spaces let you truly experience the arctic wilderness.
This area gets the most snow in Finland and it can last from the end of October to the start of May.
With little manmade light pollution, with any luck you may be able to see the Aurora Borealis - the magical display of norhern lights .
