There’s plenty of magic in the air when a family travels to Lapland. There are so many special memories to be made that will be truly treasured forever. Lapland is a dream destination for kids and big kids alike! It also tends to come with a price tag. MagicBreaks are here to make your dreams come true, which is why we have just launched a special offer that will allow you and your family to experience a festive period like no other from only £799 per person*.
In today’s blog post, we’re going to run you through an enchanting four-day itinerary that you can look forward to during the festive season this year.
Today is the day, you have arrived in a winter wonderland! It’s time to head to your home away from home, Hotel Levi Panorama; a beautiful hotel in a stunning location at the top of Levi fell with wonderful wide-reaching views over the ski slopes, Levi resort and the surrounding winter landscape. After spending a while admiring the fantastic views, collect your complimentary thermal suits and boots, which will keep you warm, toasty and cosy throughout the duration of your stay. It’s time to explore! Discover snowy surroundings, build snowmen, ride a toboggan and have a snowball fight.
The time has come to meet the big man himself. This is an experience that is just as magical for the adults as it is children. You will spend half a day at Santa’s enchanting workshop. You’ll enjoy a private meet and greet with Santa, don’t forget to give him your letter! You can also take part in festive games, cook on an open fire, bake gingerbread biscuits with the elves and make your own decorations in Elf School. You’ll also meet Comet the Reindeer himself or have great fun tobogganing in the snow.
Discover all that Levi has to offer, and no, not the jeans! Levi is a very popular resort with a lively village centre with plenty for all of the family to enjoy. A wide selection of souvenir shops, cafés, bars and restaurants can be found on festively lit streets, all within easy walking distance from Hotel Levi Panorama. You may use the convenient Levi Summit gondola, which departs from outside the hotel and takes less than 5 minutes directly into the centre of Levi. You’ll receive a free day ticket for each day of stay (excluding day of departure).
Alternatively, why not book a Husky & Reindeer Safari?^ This is an animal lover's dream. Meet some of Santa's reindeer deep in their natural habitat. Enjoy a romantic reindeer sleigh ride across the snowy landscape as you’re served delicious hot fruit juice and cake. Learn about their way of life from local Sámi herders. You’ll then visit the huskies in their nearby cosy wilderness home. Watch them huddle around a campfire inside a traditional Lappish Kota hut. See the husky puppies and enjoy a 2km dog-sled ride through the sparkling winter landscape.
For those looking for a quicker ride, Snowmobile safaris are also available^. Experience an exhilarating 25km ride through beautiful scenery, snow-laden forests and frozen lakes. You can either drive the snowmobile on your own or with a sharing passenger. Children either share with an adult or are towed in a covered sled behind the guide.
On your final night, get ready to enjoy an evening of party games and a disco, with certificates being given to the children. Tuck into a buffet of traditional roast turkey Christmas dinner plus Lappish specialities. A Christmas dinner you will never forget! All children will also receive a small gift that can be treasured for years to come.
After four of the most magical few days of your lives, it’s time to enjoy your last breakfast whilst looking out over a beautiful white landscape and head to the airport for your flight home. You’ll be sad to leave, but the special memories made on your trip will last a lifetime…
