Newmarket Holidays / Lapland Christmas Day Trip

Newmarket Holidays have been in business  since 1983, putting together holidays with a difference, which represent excellent value-for-money each and every time. In 2013, Newmarket Holidays have a special festive new addition to the portfolio which will astound and delight children across the UK. As part of the Day Trips by Air catalogue, a visit to Lapland to meet the real Santa Claus is available on selected dates throughout December, from a variety of UK airports.

The Lapland adventure begins with flights from the customer’s chosen airport early in the morning on the selected date, landing in Pajala in Swedish Lapland. On board children and adults alike can take advantage of the in-flight catering, which is included in the price of the trip, while looking out of the window for the first glimpse of the winter wonderland destination. Upon arrival, all travellers are Newmarket Holidaysfitted with protective thermal clothing to cope with the sub-zero temperatures before being transferred to the beginning of the secret path through the forest, which leads to Santa’s very own log cabin. Here children are able to meet the real Santa Claus and receive an early Christmas gift. While this is, of course, the highlight of the day, the fun does not stop here.

Also included in the price of the Lapland trip are two exciting sleigh rides, one husky-drawn and one with Santa’s very own reindeer leading the way. A high-powered snowmobile ride awaits the thrill-seekers and there are opportunities for toboggan rides, snowball fights and snowman building. A two-course hot lunch is served during the day and tea, coffee and hot chocolate are available to warm up cold hands. The traditionally dressed Sami hosts are on hand at all times. This festive adventure will prove to be the trip of a lifetime for young children everywhere. All activities, transport and catering are included in the quoted price, and early booking means that for every adult traveller a child goes half-price.
