Meet Santa on a magical day trip

Christmas in Lapland gets pretty chilly - December brings with it the coldest temperatures, when thermometers plummet into double minus figures, so don't forget to pack your thermal underwear and warmest reindeer print jumpers.

Despite this, during the magical time of Christmas, Lapland holidays offer the unique opportunity to visit Santa Claus Village, where you can meet the big jolly fellow himself and take a tour of his workshop where the elves are busy getting all of the toys ready for Christmas. Head outside and say "Hi" to Rudolph, but watch out for those cheeky elves or you may suddenly find yourself amidst a snowball fight.

Be awe-struck by the aurora

In the winter months perpetual darkness falls over Lapland for days at a time during the Kaamos, or 'Polar night', as the Sun hovers just below the horizon even in the middle of the day. However, these extended periods of darkness offer fantastic opportunities to enjoy the fabulous natural light shows of the aurora, or Northern Lights as they are commonly known. The incredible green and red displays in the night time sky are one of the highlights of Lapland holidays.

The best time to book cheap breaks in Lapland, if you really want to see the most vivid aurora, is between September and October or March and April, although they do also occur on clear nights during the winter months and around Christmas. Lapland deals from Holiday Hypermarket are a great way to witness this amazing natural phenomenon at a bargain price.

Enjoy Exciting Day Trips to Lapland

There is in fact more than one country encompassed by the area known as Lapland. Finland is actually just one geographical province of the Sápmi area of the Sami people, which stretches across the northernmost regions of Sweden, Norway, Finland and Russia. The Sami have learnt to survive in this seemingly inhospitable region, and many Sami people live and work in Finnish Lapland. It's an interesting culture and unique way of life, so if there's a chance to hear locals' tales around the log fire, you'll be intrigued.

Travel arrangements for Lapland day trips typically involve flying to the airport just outside the city of Rovaniemi. Lapland Flights are available from a number of local and regional Airports in the UK, and Lapland hotels, cosy log cabins and lodges are available for longer 3 or 4 night stays.
