The run up to Christmas is a magical time in Lapland. Santa is getting ready for his mammoth journey across the world, the elves are busy making all the presents and the snow is falling softly outside in the forest. What better time to pay him a visit with your Christmas wishes for the year? The highlight of your holiday will be your private meeting with Santa himself.

In Search of Santa is the perfect package for families who want to enjoy a great Christmas experience but cannot travel at Christmas time itself.

The itinerary and price shown is for the 4 day tour. The 5 day tour has a slightly altered itinerary - see below.
