Things To Do Here

A holiday in Lapland is truly magical and one to treasure forever. This year you and your family can enjoy a chartered trip to Lapland direct from Cork Airport. The perfect trip to experience some Arctic fun and meet Santa Claus himself. Enjoy a stay in Santa's hometown where you will be taken on some whirlwind adventures by his reindeer and elves, and you'll even get to meet the magical Mr. Santa Claus himself.

Day One In Lapland

Day One begins with an early morning flight from Cork Airport to Lapland. Subject to crew permission the festive fun will begin on the flight. There will be Christmas singing, colouring and drawing, and lots of very excited children.

On arrival at Rovaniemi Airport, the official airport of Santa Claus, guests will be met by elves who will guide them throughout their stay and help them search for Santa.

Once they've collected their special thermal clothing the group will set off to enjoy some wintery Lappish activities. Candles and fires, together with snow covered trees and the magical lights of the arctic, will add to the spirit of Christmas.

During the day guests will take a break from their activities and be able to recharge their batteries with a nice hot lunch in a cosy and warm restaurant. After a long day they will return to the hotel where they can relax, unwind and enjoy a three course buffet dinner.

Please note the order of activities will vary for each group. Meals included in Day One: breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Day Two in Lapland

After breakfast, guests will check out of their hotel and visit Santa Claus village located in the Arctic Circle. Guests will enjoy a private meeting with Santa in his official office and Santa will have a small token gift for each child.

Children can make friends with the cheerful postal elves in Santa's Post Office where they will see a colourful world of beautiful cards, stamps and gifts. They will have time to write and send letters from Santa’s official Post Office. Upon leaving the village guests will return their thermal clothing.

Finally, guests will take a short coach transfer back to Rovaniemi Airport for a flight home and bid a happy farewell to the land of Santa Claus. A light lunch will be served on board the flight.
