    6 days - Magical Christmas tour for families with skiing, Santa and adventures.

    Would you like to spend your next Christmas in Lapland in a snow-covered forest, winter activities at your door and a private Santa visit to his cottage in the wilderness? Christmas is a time for families to make new memories together, and this is where we step in. Our escorted tours include hand-picked restaurants with all the trimmings, experienced local guides and an escort on hand 24/7.

    The village of Levi is located 170 km north of the Arctic Circle, deep in Finnish Lapland surrounded by the peaceful old forests, high enough that the Northern Lights will hopefully blaze across the sky. Your family will stay in your own private log cabin, each with their own fireplace and sauna. Enjoy great local food and join in some exhilarating winter activities like husky & reindeer sledding and snowmobiling.

    On Christmas Eve we will visit a Lapp village where the day is spent enjoying winter activities and eating gingerbread biscuits. The highlight of the day is when each family receives an invite for a private visit to Santa's cabin, travelling through the snowy forest to get to him.

    • Visit to a reindeer farm including a reindeer sleigh ride, lunch and activities around the fire
