Would you like to spend your next Christmas in Lapland in a snow-covered village where streetlights are turned off in the afternoon so that you can see the Northern Lights?
Christmas is a time for families to make new memories together, and this is where we step in.
The village of Äkäslompolo is located 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, deep in Finnish Lapland surrounded by the peaceful old forests of the Pallas-Ylläs Nature Park. This beautiful small village is your home for the week; shop with the locals, feed reindeers outside the supermarket afterwards and then have hot chocolates in the cafe on your way back to your cabin.
You will stay in cosy log cabins, each with their own fireplace and sauna. Enjoy great local food and join in some exhilarating winter activities like husky & reindeer sledding, ice fishing and snowmobiling.
On Christmas Eve we will visit a Lapp Village where the day is spent enjoying winter activities and making gingerbread biscuits & Christmas decorations. The highlight of the day is when each family receives an invite for a private visit to Santa's cabin, travelling through the snowy forest by sleigh.
