Celebrating Christmas in Lapland is always an enchanting experience. The picture-postcard landscapes and unique blue light create a very special backdrop for unforgettable family memories.
This four-night Father Christmas holiday features both set activities and the opportunity to choose your own. A highlight is a special private meeting with Father Christmas, which is a magical moment for families. Other festivities include a gala dinner, all-important Christmas cookies, a woodland search by snowmobile for a Christmas tree to decorate and of course, plenty of fun in the snow.
You will also have the chance to get up close to Arctic animals at the Ranua Wildlife Park, which is home to the likes of polar bears, moose, golden eagles, Arctic foxes, otters, lynx, elk and deer. Together, you can learn about the fascinating lives of these creatures and help feed them too!
During your free time you get to choose from our very own assortment of winter activities– see the ‘Personalise’ section for more details. Enjoy your very own reindeer sleigh ride, explore the wilderness by snowmobile or during a husky safari, and search for the Northern Lights on snowshoes – just a few of the many wonderful activities you can add to your holiday!
Ranua is one of our favourite family locations as it combines comfy, modern family apartments with welcoming hospitality and knowledgeable guides. Your apartment comes equipped with a kitchenette which makes it a perfect place to cook lunch or if you’d prefer, you can purchase it locally in the restaurant. In our experience, the restaurant can become busy during the festive lunchtimes, with outside visitors to the park, and we have found that most families prefer to make their own lunch arrangements in their wonderfully equipped apartment kitchens. One free taxi ride to the local supermarket is included in your stay, and reception can arrange this for you either at check-in or the following day, so you can easily stock up on supplies. Breakfast and dinner are included in all our holidays.
This is a delightful holiday packed full of experiences for children and adults alike. This holiday offers a real celebration of the Christmas spirit, with plenty of other highlights along the way.

Some of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate (as listed in the ‘Group Size’ section).

Medical History and Advice
We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.
In order to give us the best possible chance to do this we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.
In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.
Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.
It is vitally important that you advise us prior to departure of any medical or dietary condition relating to any member of your party so that we may notify our local staff before you arrive. We recommend only drinking bottled water from bottles with unbroken seals and be vigilant about the use of ice in drinks and ice cream.
Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.
It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

The UK Foreign Office Advice
Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice
We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.
The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:
Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/
New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.safetravel.govt.nz/
Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau http://voyage.gc.ca/
The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english.html
If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.
If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.
If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.
If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.
Booking activities locally
Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).
When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern.
In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time. You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are correctly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc.) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.
Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.
Flight schedule changes and connecting transportation
On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.
Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.
Booking your own flights cancellation disclaimer
If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.
If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.
Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

A special holiday 23 December 2019 by Judith Dennis & Family
The staff in the restaurant, reception and all guides were excellent. Very helpful, very knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to make our holiday as special as it could be.
Husky Safari and the Santa Experience were both fantastic! 21 December 2018 by The Halldorson Family
Husky Safari and the Santa Experience were both fantastic! We also really enjoyed the reindeer sleigh ride. The holiday village accommodations themselves are lovely and modern, we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of space and cosy layout.
Lapland is absolutely magical 21 December 2018 by The Ponzetta Family
Lapland is absolutely magical I would thoroughly recommend visiting at Christmas time. The staff and guides were friendly and very accommodating,
The service from the activity guides was exceptional 21 December 2018 by Katie Hill
The service from the activity guides was exceptional, they were supportive of adults and children and we felt safe on all the activities we did!
The overall trip was excellent... 02 January 2015 by Richard Abigail
The overall trip was excellent, the accommodation was great and the staff very friendly. I choose the trip because it felt like a Lapland experience with a Santa trip (as opposed to other trips I saw which were all about the Santa visit) and it totally lived up to my expectations. I would highlight more the Lapland experience and the Exclusivity in your marketing as I don't think you are doing the trip justice! All elements of the holiday were very good. The Santa visit was very well done and felt exclusive. A tip to pass onto future travellers is that there is only limited ability to buy snacks for the kids at the village so it would be a good idea to pack supplies. We had an absolutely fantastic time and I would recommend this trip to all my friends.
