Lapland Christmas ski holidays

Lapland Christmas skiing packages snowboarding

This is a dream destination for Christmas - nothing beats visiting Santa’s home and this is a place where a White Christmas is a given.

Staying in cosy resorts packed with Finnish charm and Sami traditions will make you feel like you’re in a genuine winter wonderland, with the Finnish wilderness (we like to call it Narnia) on your doorstep.

Most holidays include the opportunity to meet Santa in his hidden cottage, cabin or workhouse – enough to make anyone believe in Father Christmas. Rather than just walking in a winter wonderland, you can travel by reindeer sleigh ride with Rudolph’s friends or meet some huskies for a spot of sledding through the forest.

Lapland’s daylight hours are at their lowest in December and the shortest day of the year usually falls around Christmastime. Instead of gloomy darkness, the region is usually covered in a shimmering twilight throughout the day, helped by the reflective snow, which creates a really special atmosphere. Even if there isn’t much natural light, plenty of floodlit pistes mean you can still have a great day’s skiing and you’ve also got a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights – a magical way to top off your festive break.

December is really cold here so put boots with good grip and layers of thermals at the top of your Christmas list; sometimes snowsuits can be supplied with your accommodation - check with us before you go as this could save money as well as packing space (all the more room for stocking fillers!).
