Discover Lapland

Lapland is Finland’s northernmost region, a sparsely populated area bordering Sweden, Norway, Russia and the Baltic Sea. It’s known for its vast subarctic wilderness, ski resorts and natural phenomena including the midnight sun and the Northern Lights. Finland's capital Rovaniemi is the gateway to the region and this is of course, the homeland of the indigenous Sami people. One of Finland's main residents has to be Father Christmas and his many elves and year after year new generations of families as well as the young at heart take an unforgettable trip to Lapland to experience the true magic of Christmas.

Here at Prestbury Travel we can create a magical visit to Lapland where you can choose to meet Father Christmas, witness the wonder of the Northern Lights or, get adventurous and experience some exhilarating Arctic activities such as; snowmobiling and Husky sledding. Our aim is to ensure your visit to Lapland is everything you could possibly wish for and more.

Day Trip

For families seeking a touch of magic this Christmas then escaping to Lapland in search of Santa could be just what you're looking for. We work closely with a number of Tour Operators specialising in Lapland Holidays and can organise anything from a 1 day tour to a few nights away.


One Day Tour Highlights

Here's an insight in to what a one day can entail...
Leaving the UK at around 8am, breakfast will be served on your flight. It takes approximately 3 ½ hours to fly to Lapland and on arrival at Enontekio, you'll be given a thermal snow suit and boots to keep you warm before hopping on to a snowmobile or sleigh and escaping to a magical location beside a frozen lake. Once in the snowy setting of the Lappish countryside you will visit a snow igloo and experience a variety of traditional arctic activities. No journey to Lapland would be complete without experiencing a traditional sleigh ride pulled by either a team of huskies or Santa’s faithful reindeer. 


The day wouldn't be complete without meeting Santa and his special helpers where each child will receive a gift from Santa and have the opportunity to let him know what you'd like for Christmas.

Lunch will be available throughout the day and the menu usually includes soup, baked potatoes with either a meat or vegetarian filling, pasta and a sweet dessert of pancakes and jam. On the return flight later that same day, dinner will be served and then it's time to sit back relax and reflect on the magical day enjoyed by all.


Lapland Short Breaks

Escape the chaos in the build-up to Christmas and be transported to a world full of mystery and magic in search of Santa. Prepare to be spellbound by the beauty and nature of the Lappish wilderness where, days will be spent enjoying the company of Santa's Elves and special friends before meeting the main man himself!

Experience unforgettable husky sleigh rides through ancient snow covered forests or, an adrenaline-packed snowmobile safari across frozen lakes and stunning landscapes. The choice of exhilarating winter activities is extensive.

With a winter that lasts around 200 days, the northern lights can be seen painting ribbons of colour across the sky from late August until mid-April. You can seek out this stunning night sky with an evening reindeer sled safari, through the woods on snowshoes or by simply relaxing around a campfire or perhaps a glass-topped igloo.

A stay in Finnish Lapland allows you to discover the silence of wide-open spaces, the beauty of pine trees adorned with baubles of freshly fallen snow and a whole host of exciting winter activities. Magical memories that will never be forgotten.
