A holiday to Lapland is the ultimate Christmas present its the one place in the world that little ones can spend time with Santa on his home turf. Youll find it in the north of Finland, deep inside the Arctic Circle, and flights from the UK to Lapland are only around three and a half hours long. This country dishes up the stuff of fairy tales think snow-dusted forests, cosy log cabins, and a population thats made up of more reindeer and huskies than people.
So, what can you do there? Lapland pulls out all the stops over the festive period, so theres nowhere better to get into the Christmas spirit. Storytelling around crackling fires and meet-and-greets with Santa himself are all on the agenda, whether youre visiting for the day or staying a bit longer. You can also get stuck in with activities in Laplands snowy countryside. Wherever you stay, everything from snowmobiling to snowball fights are as easy to come by as Christmassy activities, like sleigh rides. Each resort has a different vibe, too, so whether youre after an action-packed getaway or a relaxing retreat, youll find somewhere that suits.
