Time waits for no man and in the flash of an eye your kids will have grown into beings unrecognisable from the youngsters they are today. So before that happens and they fly the nest, keep the magic going with a Santa's Lapland family trip. Indulge yourself with an all-out festive family fling with Santa and stock up the family album. 

After all those Christmas Eves spent lying awake, they’re finally going to meet the big man himself. Your kids will love the snowmobile search to find Santa’s home and, when they do find it they’ll get a private meeting with him and a present (under 13s). Even if the kids are older and the doubt has set in, they’ll still have a magical time with all the rake of activities that are lined up. Snuggle up in a sled and drive a ream of huskies, head out for a reindeer sleigh ride and have a go at ice-fishing and ice-hockey. Toboggans are free to use in all the cabins so you can all get in some traditional Christmas fun. 

The wooden cabins available are Christmas picture postcard perfect. Decorations and that all-important tree will be waiting for you, along with the open log fire for everyone to loll in front of in their pjs, watching the Christmas movies.  Relax in the sauna the Finnish way and sit back while a Santa helper does the cooking and cleaning. 

Gargantuan breakfasts fortify everyone for the fun ahead and evenings are made for replenishing energy levels, helped by the 3-course meals, complimentary wine and soft drinks, for all the family. A festive dinner on the last evening with traditional crackers means you all go out with a bang. 

If you opt for a hotel, Santa’s done his best to keep the Christmas costs down. Under 6s get free half-board. Some hotels have swimming pools and some even have Northern lights viewing rooms. After all, seeing is believing.
