Lapland HolidaysReference WW58042
As a child growing up, Lapland is somewhere that exists only in those dreams where snowmen come alive and Father Christmas and his reindeer are real. We can make your perfect Lapland holidays come true with truly unforgettable city breaks to Lapland. If you want to really understand the Christmas spirit then this really is the place to come, as it has a fully festive vibe most of the year round, with cute log cabins, plenty of snow in the winter months and reindeers just hanging around waiting to be petted and inspected for red noses.
A city break to Lapland can be a dream for kids, big and small, whether you want to sit on Santa’s knee and tell him what you want for Christmas, or you’re more interested in going on a husky sled ride or getting out and trying snowmobiling or skiing. Of course, if you travel here at the right time of year, and you head up north just far enough then you can also witness that other magical occurrence of the frozen north – the Northern Lights – which have made many a holiday complete.
As we all know, long ago Santa’s elves entered into an agreement with Mother Sun to have daylight around the clock during the summer. Because the elves sleep so much in winter, they are full of energy in summer and have plenty to do, for which, of course, they need light. This is a unique opportunity to see the "Midnight Sun". During the time of midnight, the sun never sets below the horizon. In other words, it shines 24 hours a day. As well as being the home of Santa's magical world, the Arctic Circle also acts as a gateway to a slower-paced, enchanted time.
