"We've just returned from an incredible 3 nights in Lapland. Canterbury Travel leave no stone left unturned in terms of detail and organisation and I cannot offer any higher praise than to say that they helped us make memories that we’ll cherish forever. The reps, elves and hotel staff were all first class and we cannot wait to go back one day!!"
Day 1.There's excitement in the air as we travel to Pyha
Following your flight to Lapland, join your personal tour guide for the transfer to Pyha, a destination set deep in the fells of the National Park. A brief stop will be made enroute to Pyha, to collect your over garments and boots.
Settle into your accommodation and later this evening, relax and enjoy a buffet dinner in the hotel restaurant.
Lapland really is such a magical place and we have a bright and early start today, as a host of activities await us.
After a fortifying breakfast, we’ll join our small group of families and depart by coach for a secret location where we have been advised Santa has recently been seen. What does this winter wonderland have in store for us today?
Well, Huskies and reindeer will be waiting to greet you perhaps we’ll even see Speedy Sam rushing through the snow, as he makes the last preparations for Santa’s expedition around the world on Christmas Eve. See where the huskies live and meet some of the dogs, prior to an energising husky safari. Learn about the lives of the reindeer during your 90 min experience then enjoy a more sedate sleigh ride through the forest, past trees heavily laden with snow.
Lunch will be served at location and on return to resort enjoy dinner in the restaurant.
Day 3.Discover Santa’s Secret Home
This morning we resume our search for Santa.
Did you meet the Elves at home yesterday? If not then let’s hope they’re in today. If so, then you’ll see where Wendy Wood creates some of the traditional wooden toys, for the boys and girls who have made it on to Santa’s ‘good child’ list. Where do the Elves rest their weary heads at the end of the day? You’ll soon find out.
Visit the Magical Post Office and discover where the mail is sorted by the Elves. When we finally discover Santa’s secret home, he will be delighted to hear all the children’s special wishes for Christmas, during your private family meeting with him.
This evening enjoy the traditional festive dinner. Afterwards, take the children to the We Found Santa Party where they'll enjoy dancing and having even more fun with the Special Elves.
Day 4.Say Farewell to Santa and the Special Elves
Spend the morning relaxing in Pyha before it’s time to say goodbye to Lapland and our new found friends Snowy Bowy, Tricky Dicky, Speedy Sam and Noisy Nod.
Lunch will be taken prior to departure. Enroute to Rovaniemi Airport your tour guide will provide you with your souvenir CD of the Elf Song.
If time permits, a short stop may be made, to purchase any souvenirs, prior to the return flight home.
