Day 1: Having flown across the Arctic Circle, you’ll be greeted at Ivalo airport by some of Santa's helpers, before a 25-minute coach ride to your hotel in Saariselkä. Here you’ll get kitted out in complimentary thermal gear so you can head out and explore the winter wonderland on your doorstep. This is a chance for you to hone your snowman-building skills or grab a toboggan and give it a go, building up an appetite for the welcome dinner that awaits you.
Day 2: Today is full to the brim with outdoor adventures, including a reindeer sleigh-ride, a husky-sledge ride, a visit to the Elves' Igloo Wonderland for fun and games, a visit to the Reindeer Centre and a host of other activities that include snow sculpting, ice-fishing, mini-skidoos for the children and tobogganing. And the highlight of the day - an exclusive, private family meeting with Santa in his hideaway log-cabin! During the day a warming lunch will keep you topped up before the special gala dinner back at your hotel in the evening.
Day 3: Today you can choose what you do, from a host of optional adventures (we recommend pre-booking these in the UK for the best availability) - these include more husky-sledging, a snowmobile safari and a reindeer sleigh ride! You’ll also have time to browse the souvenir shops and perhaps do a little more sledging before being collected from your door and taken to the airport.
Adventure day: You have the option to add a 4th day to your trip (extra cost applies). This gives you more time to try new snow adventures and see more sights such as a snowmobile safari, a Northern Lights Adventure, a longer husky sledge or reindeer sleigh ride, or perhaps some downhill skiing or tobogganing. This day will normally be added in as 'day 2' of your 4-day trip.
Please note: your flight departure time will affect how long you have in the resort on your final day.
