Festive Family Fun Overview

Based in cosy winter cottages, this pre-Christmas family short break provides a real taste of Lapland. Over two days in a Finnish winter wonderland you will enjoy dog sledding, snowmobiling and a reindeer sleigh ride. You will also explore on snowshoes, dine in an ice restaurant and enjoy evening campfires. Children from £1375 (4-12yrs).

As the sun dips below the horizon and the blue light of winter arrives with the snow, Lapland transforms into an amazing family playground. This short break is designed to maximise the number of amazing experiences you can have in just four nights.

Based in a cosy winter cottage at Jeris on the shores of a frozen lake, you will explore the snow-covered landscape in a variety of fun-filled ways. Our safaris are not two minutes tastes, but real activities which allow you to enjoy Lapland at its very best. We also leave enough time free so you can simply enjoy family snowball fights!

You’ll experience ‘paw-power’ as you take to the trails for an unforgettable dog sledding trip, horsepower as you enjoy an adventure on snowmobiles and ‘reindeer power’ as you glide along in a reindeer-pulled sleigh having learnt some herding techniques. Weather permitting; you will also eat lunch in a restaurant made entirely from ice.

As Jeris sits in prime Northern Lights viewing territory, you will also explore on snowshoes as you try and hunt down the Aurora as a family.

Of course, as you will be travelling in the run-up to Christmas, we offer our guests the opportunity to include a magical meeting with Father Christmas in their holiday should they wish. Simply see the ‘Personalise’ section or talk to one of our travel experts to find out more.
