Santa holidays

A Lapland Christmas with Santa

Finland's idyllic festive landscape will leave you in awe at the best of times, but as the home of Santa it is nothing short of enchanting over the Christmas period. We've put together a couple of different packages for our resorts in Iso-Syöte and Ruka, with a whole host of fantastic winter activities along with a magical visit to Santa himself - a unique Lapland holiday lies ahead.

Santa Adventure Week - Ruka

Your home for the week will be the superb Aurinkorinne apartments, offering high quality accommodation. The following winter activities are all included in the accommodation, providing a uniquely festive holiday.

Activities & Itinerary

  • Day 1: Transfer from your airport to your accommodation, pre-bookable grocery pack available (highly recommended, as the supermarket will not be open upon arrival).
  • Day 2: Snowmobile safari taster - introduction on how to drive a snowmobile followed by approximately an hour's safari through spectacular snowy forests.
  • Day 3: Husky farm and safari taster - get an introduction to the huskies at the farm and learn how to drive them before heading out into the forests.
  • Day 4: Santa's secret cottage - head out into Lapland's wilderness to be met by Santa's elves for some games in the snow before Santa appears and invites you into his cottage. Learn a song in Finnish and have some cookies and drinks. Every child gets a present and there's plenty of time for photos.
  • Day 5: Free day for your own activities - you could try cross-country skiing, downhill skiing or many of the resort's other activities, including reindeer safaris or just a relaxing day in the Iso-Syöte hotel where you'll have access to all of their facilities.
  • Day 6: Reindeer farm visit - meet a local reindeer herder and feed the reindeer, then experience nature by travelling in a reindeer sleigh the old fashioned Lappish way. As the trip goes through the wonderful snowy forest you'll keep warm in a 'kota' or the Reindeer café whilst enjoying a tea, coffee or juice and a local bun.
  • Day 7: Free day for your own activities.
