Ranua Festive Family Adventure, Lapland (Finland)

This four-day family activity holiday in Ranua in the Lapland region of northern Finland introduces kids to new and exciting snow experiences, including a reindeer sleigh ride, as well as giving you all the chance to see endangered Arctic animals such as polar bears, lynx and Arctic fox. Most activities are included, but there’s the option to book extended versions of them, as well as to have a private meeting with Santa.

The Ranua Festive Family Adventure is best suited to families with children aged four and older; younger children can come but may not be able to participate in all activities. The price includes return flights and transfers, holiday village accommodation (with decking to spot the wildlife, and hopefully also the Northern Lights), most meals, cold-weather clothing, entrance to Rauna Wildlife Park, with the opportunity to feed the animals and Father Christmas visit.
