Flying out to see me in my own homeland couldn’t be easier, with the non-stop flights I have organised for you, direct to Saariselkä’s own local airport of Ivalo – a short and easy 25-minute transfer from Saariselkä itself. These flights are exclusive for my own special guests, and depart from the UK around 6 or 7am, returning 3 to 4pm at the end of your stay. I am so happy that there are more regional flights from the UK to make it much easier for you to come and see me in Lapland. Below is an easy to read table so you can see what days the NEW ‘Santa Express’ flights
to Lapland take off from your local airport.

Through our partnership with winners of the prestigious ‘British Travel Awards’ Airport Parking & Hotels – APH we are able to offer up to 35% discount to all of our Santa’s Lapland customers at airports throughout the UK.

APH With our Lapland flights all departing early in the morning why not take advantage of some of the great ‘Airport Hotel and Parking’ packages and stay at an airport hotel the night before you fly. This takes the stress out of getting to the airport in the morning on time and finding the car park. Taking an extra night away this allows you to wake up fully refreshed & enjoy your entire break to Lapland.

If an overnight stay is not for you then the ‘Meet & Greet’ Valet Parking is the perfect way of dropping your car off. ‘Meet & Greet’ Valet Parking saves you time, hassle free and so convenient. Simply drive to the airport terminal, where an APH chauffeur meets you and takes your car to their nearby secure car-park. On your return, your car is then delivered back to you directly at the terminal, for you to drive straight off home!
