We are your one-stop-shop for holidays to Lapland, featuring a hand-picked selection of magical short breaks from an extensive number of tour companies at the very best prices.
Lapland is located deep in the north of Scandinavia and is home to Santa Claus and his trusty elves. During the winter months, you can fly directly to Lapland from many of the UK’s regional airports in under 4 hours.
Lapland is a magical winter wonderland, with the mountains and pine forests covered in a thick white blanket of snow during the winter months. The temperatures this far north can plummet as low as -25C so the warm thermal suits and boots that are provided for each trip are essential.
Due to its northern location, you may be lucky enough to witness the natural phenomenon of the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) during your holiday to Lapland.
Lapland is the ultimate destination for a family holiday at Christmas time for a once in a lifetime experience and you are sure to take home unforgettable memories to treasure forever.
