The Amazing Journey:
Our day begins with an early morning flight from Dublin airport to Lapland. During the flight a light breakfast will be served and subject to crew permission the festive f
un will begin. There will be Christmas singing, colouring, drawing and lots of very excited children.
On arrival at Rovaniemi airport - the official airport of Santa Claus you will be met by our elves who will assist you throughout your stay and help you search for Santa.
Once you have checked into your chosen accommodation and collected your special thermal clothing we will begin our wintry adventure. We will set off for a short 30minute snowmobile safari through the snow covered forests. You will drive 2 persons per snowmobile and the children will travel in the sledges pulled by the snowmobile.
After a long day we will head back to our hotels where you can enjoy a relaxing sauna and enjoy a buffet dinner.
A FULL DAY OF WINTER SNOW FUN (Meals included Breakfast, lunch and Gala dinner)

Lunch - During the day we will take a break from the activities and 'recharge our batteries' by enjoying a nice hot lunch in a cosy restaurant.
Joulukka - "Listen carefully as you may hear some footsteps, could it be an Elf ?" Later in the day we will make our way to Joulukka, a unique place in the middle of the deep forest, where the magic of Christmas comes alive. Here we will visit the Elf school & Santa's Command Centre.
Tobogganing - We will enjoy the thrills of speedy tobogganing at Joulukka.

Santa's ' Christmas Command Centre' - If you're on your best behaviour, you might even have the chance to visit ' Santa's secret Command Centre' in Joulukka. Here you can see
the Elves movements around the world and see how Santa's letters arrive. If you have been really good you will have the chance to meet Santa Claus himself. During your private family meeting with Santa, each child will have the chance to talk with Santa and tell him all their wishes. All children will receive a small token gift from Santa.
Festive Dinner - This evening, you will enjoy a festive dinner with limited drinks included. You will be met by your guides at your hotel and from there we will head out of town to enjoy our farewell dinner.
