Fly from Dublin to Lapland and meet Santa at home on this magical two night trip.

Our day begins with an early morning flight from Dublin airport to Lapland. During the flight a light breakfast will be served and subject to crew permission the festive fun will begin. There will be Christmas singing, colouring, drawing and lots of very excited children.

On arrival at Rovaniemi airport - the official airport of Santa Claus you will be met by our elves who will guide you throughout your stay and help you search for Santa.

Once you have checked into your chosen accommodation and collected your special thermal clothing we will begin our wintry adventure.

We will set off for a short 30 minute snowmobile safari through the snow covered forests. Adults will drive 2 persons per snowmobile and the children will travel in the sledges pulled by one of our guides. After a long day we will head back to our hotels where you can enjoy a relaxing sauna and buffet dinner.

After breakfast on day two, you will be met by our guides at your hotel. We will take a coach to the surrounding wilderness and begin our wintry adventure, where you will get to enjoy lots of activities.  We will visit a husky farm, where you will learn about the life of the husky dog. We will get to enjoy a short (800m) but speedy ride in sledges pulled by these arctic huskies. In the warmth of the chamber you can enjoy a hot drink and biscuits.

You will visit a reindeer farm, where you will experience the magical ceremony of crossing the Arctic Circle in a kota-tepee. You will also get to enjoy the fun of a short (400m) reindeer ride. Upon completion of your reindeer driving, your guide will issue you with a special reindeer licence.

During the day we will take a break from the activities and 'recharge our batteries' by enjoying a nice hot lunch in a cosy restaurant. We will also enjoy the thrills of speedy tobogganing at Joulukka.

"Listen carefully as you may hear some footsteps, could it be an Elf?" Later in the day we will make our way to Joulukka, a unique place in the middle of the deep forest, where the magic of Christmas comes alive. Here we will visit the Elf school & Santa's Command Centre.

At Elf School you will discover how Elves spend their days busily getting ready for Christmas. You will have a chance to decorate your own tasty gingerbread with the help of an Elf.

If you're on your best behaviour, you might even have the chance to visit 'Santa's secret Command Centre' in Joulukka. Here you can see the Elves movements around the world and see how Santa's letters arrive. If you have been really good, you will have the chance to meet Santa Claus himself. During your private family meeting with Santa, each child will have the chance to talk with Santa and tell him all their wishes. All children will receive a small token gift from Santa.

This evening, you will enjoy a festive dinner with limited drinks included. You will be met by your guides at your hotel and from there we will head out of town to enjoy our farewell dinner in Santa Park. Later in the evening we will also receive a surprise visit from a very special person with his cheery elves. After this wonderful evening we will return to our hotels by private coach.

Alas, the day of departure is upon us. After breakfast, we will check out of our hotels and we will make a visit to Santa Claus Village at the Arctic Circle. There we will have time for some shopping in the souvenir and handicraft shops, for those who wish to take a 'Taste of Lapland' home with them. You will also have time to write and send your letters and postcards from Santa's Official Post Office.

Finally, it's time to take a short coach transfer back to Rovaniemi airport for our flight home to Dublin and bid a happy farewell to the land of Santa Claus. A light meal will be served on board the aircraft.

Please note the order of activities will vary for each group.

Ounasvaara Chalets Rovaniemi is a hotel unlike any other - it looks like a typical cabin village, but holds all the services of a hotel. And what is best, all this is set in a peaceful family friendly location in the midst of nature. Ounasvaara Chalets Rovaniemi is situated between the two most notable landmarks of Rovaniemi - the Ounasvaara Hill and the Kemijoki river.

Ounasvaara Chalets Rovaniemi is the perfect accommodation alternative especially for families. The cabins are in semi-detached houses and this allows bigger families to be accommodated close to each other; behind the neighbouring doors.

The closeness of nature and the big cabin yards also allow outdoor games for the children during the spare time. Here you can make angels in the snow right outside the cabin door. Also the closeness of the Ounasvaara Ski Resort provides plenty of good tobogganing hills for the whole family to enjoy. You may also use the complimentary toboggans - just be sure to return them after use. Ounasvaara Chalets Rovaniemi has the perfect setting in the middle of nature, as well as all the needed facilities and equipment in the cabins.

Ounasvaara Chalets Rovaniemi provides accommodation in idyllic semi- detached cabins, where you may enjoy high standard hotel services combined with the tranquillity of Lapland's nature. Ounasvaara Chalets Rovaniemi is divided in two parts: the hillside and the riverside. The hillside has all the one bedroom cabins, whereas the riverside holds all the two bedroom cabins. The main building is on the hill side of the resort. Ounasvaara Chalets Rovaniemi offers bright and tastefully furnished cabins which sleep up to 6 persons. While in Lapland, remember to test the Sauna - there is one in each cabin!
