A travel taster from Mary Concannon of Eblana Travel
A holiday to Lapland is the perfect family treat to start Christmas in a magical way. Taking your children or grandchildren to meet the real Santa in his Arctic home promises to be a trip you’ll all remember for many Christmases to come.
Lapland promises fun for everyone, regardless of age. Here, a certain magic fills the air and knowing that Father Christmas has his natural home here only adds to the excitement. Deep in the pine trees sits his home, covered with snow — it’s the stuff that dreams are made of and you can see it on the faces of everyone as they set off in search of their fantasy.
It’s not just Father Christmas who makes Lapland so exciting. In Lapland the possibilities are endless and open to everyone. Lapland really is the winter experience of a lifetime, and if you’re lucky you may even catch the dazzling and mysterious northern lights.
A wonderland of Arctic adventure awaits — dashing through the sparkling snow-covered landscape on a husky dog sleigh or in a snowmobile safari, meeting the reindeer, the elves, and Santa himself in his secret grotto. Visit Santa’s Post Office to send your cards home, and Santa’s gift shop for seasonal souvenirs. The choice is endless.
Eblana Travel has a variety of packages on offer to Lapland. You can choose from a day trip, or a one or two night stay, and enjoy a variety of activities including husky dog rides, reindeer rides, tobogganing, lasso casting, kick sleigh for the children, snowmobiling for the adults, private meeting with Santa, special crossing of the Arctic circle, visit to Santa's post office, and free time for shopping. The tour is fully escorted throughout.
