Santa Break Resorts

What happens on a Santa Break?

Often the fun starts as soon as you step off the plane, when you’re greeted at the airport by Santa’s helpers. After arriving at your hotel, apartment or log cabin, you’ll probably be kitted out with a thermal suit and boots. Double check with us that these are included when you’re booking; they can be a life saver when it comes to saving money and suitcase space as well as keeping out the winter chills!

Of course, the highlight of the holiday is the much-awaited meeting with the man himself – depending on the holiday you book, you’ll have a private meeting with Santa in his hidden cabin, cottage or workshop. As well as getting to know the one and only Father Christmas, littluns might learn a traditional Finnish song, play festive games and maybe do some baking with the elves. Sometimes you can go along to a dinner with Santa as well, which usually includes dancing and festive games for the ultimate Christmas party.

Often Santa will give children a keepsake like a gift or a certificate – don’t forget the camera either, there should be loads of time for a selfie with Santa...

Some packages make the whole thing even more magical with the journey to Santa coming in the form of a reindeer sleigh or snowmobile. The festive treats aren’t limited to little ones, often grownups can take the driving seat of their own sleigh or snowmobile and there’s usually a mug of mulled wine, tea or coffee waiting at various points throughout the day.

Santa Break Activities

The fun doesn’t stop with meeting the big man and most Santa breaks include a day with a snowmobile safari or visits to husky farms and reindeer parks, followed by magical sleigh rides through the forest... Ask us for an up to date itinerary of what’s in store.

While the big events will be planned for you, there should be lots of free time to spend with friends or family and do your own thing - building snowmen, tobogganing and walking in your winter wonderland. You can usually book extras like snowmobile, husky and reindeer experiences, skiing or cross country lessons (with equipment hire), snowshoe walks and sometimes even a Northern Lights experience – ask us if we can arrange these for you before you set off.

How long is a Santa Break?

Most trips last 3, 4 or 7 days with the short Santa breaks including the all-important Lapland experiences and the longer ones giving you a bit more time to do your own thing.
