Be touched by the true spirit of Christmas
Having had a snowball fight, built snowmen and made snow angels, it’s time for hot berry juice and fresh gingerbread around the camp fire. Here a real Lappish storyteller or ‘Shaman’ will captivate you with a showing of their special Arctic ceremony and the helpful little elves will teach you how to say ‘hello’ in Finnish, the language of Santa. Then it’s time to meet Santa Claus himself and not only show off your language skills but take the chance to ask for that very special present you hope to find in your stocking on Christmas morning. After checking his list to see if you’ve been naughty or nice, it’s time to receive a very special gift from him, especially for you.
Before the magical day trips to Kittila come to an end there’s just time to pop into the Ice Hotel, where literally everything from the tables and chairs, walls and floors and glasses and cups are made of ice, a totally surreal experience to round off all Kittila day trips. As you head back to the airport, starry eyed yet very weary children will be reliving every single miraculous minute of their very special day, and even the adults will have been touched by the true spirit of Christmas and have memories that will last long after the mince pies have been eaten and the pine needles have fallen from your tree.
