Book early for that once-in-a-lifetime experience with Bentours

Visit Santa's home town in Finland

Summer is almost over and if watching the Sochi Winter Games has had you yearning for some time in the snow, then nowhere feels more traditional and wintry than Christmas in Europe.

For travellers who have always dreamed of a white Christmas, now is the perfect time to plan a once-in-a-lifetime festive break in the Northern hemisphere.

For a truly magical experience and unique Christmas treat, Bentours – Australia's leading Scandinavian travel specialist – offers an unforgettable Christmas in Lapland package for the young and the young at heart!

Celebrate the festive season under the Northern Lights in Santa's home town in Finnish Lapland. The 5-day family-friendly package departs from Rovaniemi, Santa's 'official' residence in Finland, on 23 December 2014. Highlights include a visit to Santa's secret hideaway deep in a majestic forest, a reindeer sleigh ride, a traditional Finnish Christmas dinner and a surprise visit from Santa after the meal. For a really unique experience, kids can help decorate a tree with Santa's helpers and then have fun as they gain an International Reindeer Driver's Licence.

On Christmas Day, there is an option to attend a traditional Lutheran church service delivered in Finnish, and a visit to the Snowfun Park for tobogganing, kick-sledding and other fun activities like ice fishing, ice golf or snow hockey. Activities on Boxing Day include a visit to the Arktikum Science Centre & Museum for insights into the unique culture and traditions of the Arctic region, and a trip to Santa Claus Village for handicraft shopping.
This package is exclusive to Bentours with accommodation options available at the Scandic Rovaniemi Hotel, Hotel Rantasipi Pohjanhovi or Hotel Santa Claus.

From AU$2480* per person twin share, the Christmas in Lapland package includes four nights' accommodation at Scandic Rovaniemi Hotel, four dinners, four breakfasts, one lunch, return airport transfers and outer winter clothes for excursions.
