Christmas in a Winter Cottage

Christmas in a Winter Cottage Overview

Create family memories to last a lifetime and visit Father Christmas in Lapland this Christmas. Your family will stay in a cosy log cabin and enjoy wonderful activities such as husky safaris, snowshoeing and festive fun including the all important meeting with Father Christmas which is sure to be a truly magical experience for your family.

Jeris encompasses the Lappish idyll; cosy winter cottages, log fires, a beautiful lakeside setting, winter forests and a range of exceptional family activities. It's the ideal location in which to combine comfort, activities and a truly memorable Christmas..

Your family will meet with reindeer, enjoy dog sledding, travel by snowmobile and explore using both snowshoes and cross-country skis. You will dine around campfires and eat in an ice restaurant. Festive fun is sprinkled throughout with cookie baking, Christmas crafts, treasure hunts, and magical wishing trees all part of your stay. There’s also a healthy dose of snow fun activities of course.

The all-important visit to see Father Christmas is private to your family. Your children can sit and talk with him, discussing their hopes and dreams for Christmas and the year to come. There’s never a dry eye amongst parents at this point!

The setting for all these wonderful experiences is breathtakingly beautiful and you will get to share it all as a family.

Jeris is also at the heart of the Aurora Zone, so your evenings may well include time spent gazing up at an Arctic sky filled with Northern Lights.
