Escape to a winter wonderland on this magical four-day trip to Lapland, where festive fun awaits

Why we love this trip: Focus on creating magical memories whilst we take care of the itinerary on this fantastically festive trip in search of the famous Northern Lights. From a snowmobile safari and husky sledding to Christmas crafting and a visit to a Sami lavvu, you'll get the quintessential Lapland experience.

Lapland is Europe's last real wilderness, with its vast pine and spruce forests that look like a magical winter wonderland covered in deep snow. As soon as you arrive you'll feel like you've stepped into a snowy scene from a Christmas card.

It's also the place where you'll find the ideal conditions to see the captivating Northern Lights.

You'll begin your four-day Christmas adventure in Luleå, part of an archipelago of more than 1,300 islands, where you can take part in a wealth of unforgettable winter experiences.

You'll enjoy several family-friendly activities in this snowy winter wonderland. Take the kids on a magical snowmobile sledge ride for a private family visit to Santa at his Cabin. He might even have a small surprise for the children, if they've been on their best behaviour!

You'll also get the chance to meet friendly, hardworking huskies, who will pull you along on a sledge for an unforgettable winter journey. Then there are the local friendly reindeer, who you'll be able to meet along with their indigeneous Sami herder, who will tell you stories of Sami life. Beforehand you will enjoy a warm drink in her lavvu, a traditional teepee.

You'll be staying in the delightful Grand Arctic Resort, on the banks of the frozen river in Överkalix. From here, you can explore the snow and ice-covered landscape by day and night, keeping an eye on the sky for the Northern Lights.

After your adventurous days, there's still plenty to keep you occupied at the hotel. There's a lavvu here which is a real Christmassy grotto, where kids can enjoy time making Christmas decorations or simply writing Christmas cards. Grown ups might choose to spend some time warming up in the hotel's two saunas, indoor Jacuzzi and lounge bar.
