Santa’s Lapland provides three- and four-day breaks to Saariselkä in Finnish Lapland with the opportunity for families to stay in one of ‘Santa’s Christmas Cabins’ or hotel accommodation options to suit a range of budgets.

During their stay guests can participate in activities such as a private meeting with Santa; husky sled ride; reindeer sleigh rides at the Reindeer Centre; Elf & Igloo Fantasia; snowmobile and sleigh rides. Flights are available from 19 UK regional airports and transfers to the resort are included.

New for 2017, the company has added more departure dates with a three-day ‘Post-Christmas Magic Break’ and a four-day ‘New Year Spectacular Break’.

Also for this winter, the company is to feature the new Star Arctic Hotel, Saariselka opening early December. Located at the top of the fell, the new five-star property provides a good spot from which to view the Northern Lights from the comfort of bedrooms.

All of the hotel suites, located in their own buildings a short walk from the main reception and restaurant area, will be duplex with a large glass window looking out over the main village.

The hotel will provide guests, staying through the operator, with a shuttle service to and from Saariselka village centre several times daily. The property also offers a public sauna with large glass windows and a modern restaurant and bar, all located in the main building.

Prices are based on half-board for all dates. Guests staying during December 23-26 will have full-board included on these nights, and those staying for December 25 and December 31 can enjoy festive gala dinners at the hotel.
