Nothing could be more wonderful than delighting in the look in your child’s eye when they come face-to-face with the real Father Christmas on a family holiday or trip to Lapland.
Finnish Lapland is three-and-a-half hours from the UK and is geared up to accommodate day trippers and those who prefer a few nights away in the snowy delights of Lapland.
The area does get particularly cold later in December with temperatures on record as low as -45 degrees Celsius! Daylight hours are limited but this adds to the ambience with fires and candles providing atmospheric lighting.
