This magical 2 night/3 day Lapland Santa holiday based in the peaceful village of Suomu or the picturesque Ruka Valley, on the edge of the Valtavaara National Park.

Day 1. The Journey Begins!

The excitement builds, as you board the aircraft ready for take-off.

On arrival in Lapland, our guides will be there to greet you. On the way to Suomu or Ruka Valley it’s time for the children to learn about how to become an elf and the essential tasks they will need to complete in order to graduate from Elf School.

In the resort, we’ll stop to collect thermal snowsuits and boots, then it’s time to check into your accommodation. In this picturesque setting, you can stay in a cosy log cabin with the added bonus of a sauna and log fire or enjoy a relaxed stay at the recently upgraded Arctic Circle Hotel in Suomu. In Ruka Valley, you have a choice of stylish apartments at the Hotel Ruka Valley

After dinner, meet more of the traditional Elves, Santa’s excitable helpers have been patiently waiting for you to arrive. So, let’s quiz them at length about tomorrow’s activities. What will be your special elf name?

For those staying in Ruka, there is the opportunity to go toboganning on the arrival evening.

Day 2. Let the fun begin, it’s time for Elf School

Today, you must complete a full set of tasks to make the grade as one of Santa’s Special Helpers. The huskies and reindeer know that you have travelled from afar and they are determined to help you to complete your mission.

Join Wendy Wood, Santa’s chief toymaker, to experience a range of traditional Arctic activities. Every apprentice Elf must master tobogganing, learn to drive a snowmobile, experience a traditional husky sleigh ride and meet Santa’s faithful reindeer.

At the Post Office, you will also need to learn how to sort and stamp the mail that Santa receives from children all over the world. Yet, which of these traditional Arctic activities will lead you to Santa’s secret hideaway?

When you finally discover his home in Lapland, Father Christmas will be delighted to meet you and every child will be rewarded with a special gift from him.

As we return to resort, enjoy a classic festive dinner; followed by a Graduation Party to commemorate your achievement of becoming one of Santa’s Elves. Will Christmas Sparkle join you at the party?

Day 3. Say Farewell to Santa and the Special Elves

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast this morning. Then join your fellow Elves outside for some final snow games before it’s time to leave Lapland.
