This winter, make the festive season truly unforgettable by taking a magical Lapland break with family activity holiday specialist, Activities Abroad.

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - October 9th, 2017 - Capture the essence of the Christmas spirit in Finland with traditional experiences, action-packed activities and enchanting encounters with Father Christmas himself as the whole family is whisked away into a mystical winter wilderness and the land of snow.

Take the children on A Magical Search for Father Christmas in Kuusamo, Finnish Lapland, where there is a distinctly genuine and relaxed feel to this natural winter wonderland family adventure. The area around Kuusamo is known for its beauty and is characterised by fells, forests, lakes and rivers, all of which are laden with snow during the wintertime. Staying only a short walk away from the indoor pool and Angry Birds Activity Park, in a modern two-bedroom apartment complete with a wood-burning stove and private sauna, this is the ideal base for a Christmas family holiday. The trip offers a range of unforgettable bucket list activities including a husky sledding adventure and a reindeer-pulled sleigh ride, alongside other magical experiences.

Set off into the forest on a very important mission: the elves need help in providing the forest animals with their own Christmas dinner. Travel in a snowmobile-pulled sled into the forest and deliver seeds and nuts to the local birds and carrots for the rabbits, before sitting down to a traditional Lappish supper. The highlight of this magical trip will be the invitation to visit Mr and Mrs Claus at their beautiful lakeside home, where the whole family can spend time with the pair, baking, telling stories and being looked after by the wonderful elves.

This four-night break, departing 2, 9 and 16 December 2017, is priced from £1,695 per adult / £1,165 per child (4-11 years) and includes flights (Heathrow), transfers, four nights’ full-board accommodation, activities listed, cold weather clothing and expert guides.

Alternatively, visit Harriniva in Northern Lapland for a spectacular Countdown to Christmas, a trip that is brimming with seasonal delights and winter family fun. Situated in prime Aurora Borealis territory, decide to stay at either Harriniva Wilderness Hotel, or in the nearby Northern Lights Cabins, or alternatively, at Hotel Jeris in one of its winter cottages located beside frozen Lake Jerisjarvi. During the trip, visit a husky farm to meet the dogs and enjoy a 6 km safari, take a sleigh ride at a local reindeer farm, and try out traditional Finnish Christmas crafts such as baking festive cookies and making a Christmas stocking. The itinerary is action-packed, with the chance to experience a 20 km snowmobile safari into the frosted wilderness, join in with snow games, including trying snowshoeing, tobogganing and perhaps ice fishing, as well as mini-snowmobiles for children.

The magical trip culminates in a hugely memorable meeting with Father Christmas. Travelling through the forest by snowmobile-pulled sleigh, elves will light the way with their lanterns to Santa’s secret cabin. Once there, spend time with Father Christmas in a private meeting that is sure to bring joy to the entire family, both young and old.

This four-night break, departing 1, 4, 11 and 18 December 2017, is priced from £1,495 per adult / £1,185 per child (4-12 years) / £765 per child (2-3 years) and includes flights (London), transfers, four nights’ full-board accommodation, activities listed, cold weather clothing and expert guides.
