Rudolph’s been on holiday! The cheeky little reindeer has left the hard work to everyone else while he’s been sunning himself abroad…I suppose he does deserve a break! Thanks for the postcard…
Leave your reply to Rudolph below!

4 Dec 2014Hello everyboody! Here we are in December already. We are certainly very busy up here in Lapland, – especially Santa, who has a whole list of jobs (as well as, of course names)!
27 Nov 2014
Psst, Nokki here again!I am so excited about seeing everyone! We’ve got some great deals available – some of our flights now only have 5 spaces! Many of our offers have over £1000 savings! To see all deals click here!
20 Nov 2014Hello everybody, it is so wonderful to finally have a chance to speak to you all, and only 34 sleeps until Christmas! I have been so busy with my baking. Although Santa certainly likes his cake, the trickiest cakes are for the Elves, like our friend Nokki, they are so fiddly when they are so small! As you might imagine, although we are always busy here in Lapland, November is particularly busy for us. All of the Elves are working even harder than usual to finish off all of your presents, Rudolph and the other reindeer are completing their final test flights, and Santa has just finished his first check through of the ‘Naughty’ and ‘Nice’ list check, ready for the second check over the next month. All of this flurry of activity means that everyone needs even more feeding! Nothing makes me happier than putting smiles on faces and filling hungry stomachs with my cooking! In the coming weeks before Christmas I will even be sharing some of my magical recipies with you..so check back soon! Oh no, I think I can smell burning, Santa will be upset! Must be off..speak soon!

5 Nov 2014Hi! My name is Nokki (well Nokkela, but pleeeaaaase don’t call me that – only Mrs Claus calls me Nokkela when I’m being cheeky) and I am the only Elf in Lapland. Well that may not quite be true, but I am definitely the best (and the naughtiest)! Apart from, only very very occasionally being a little mischievous, I am good with numbers. I used to love maths at elf school and I now help Santa with all of his adding up – I think that all of the numbers get muddled up in his beard, but don’t tell him I said that. One of the best things about my job is that I get to put together all of the deals that make it even better value for you to come and see me. I suppose you can visit Santa too, but most importantly, me! As you can imagine, with all of my adding up and taking away of lots and lots of numbers, along with my role helping all of the children and their parents, I don’t have much free time. Usually, I spend this playing little jokes and having as much fun as possible, but I promise that whenever I can, I will let you know all of the very best offers for your Lapland Holiday. This week, we have some great Santa Trip options, whether you have a big family or you and just Mum or Dad would like to come..
Shhhh…Nokki’s Secret Deal!
There is now free airport parking for new bookings from Bristol on 23rd December, as well as a free family snowmobile ride!
28 Oct 2014I am so excited… Christmas is nearly here! In between all of my flying training sessions ready for the big night, Santa has said that I can come and tell you all about the amazing fun that you can have with me and my friends here in Lapland! Whilst a very long time ago, I wasn’t able to join in the games, since Santa had me guide the sleigh with my red nose I try and have as much fun as I can, and make sure that everybody visiting can do the same. Although my Reindeer friends and I pull Santa’s sleigh, we would be much too tired to fly everybody around the world, which is why you will be coming to see us on an aeroplane. Don’t worry though, as soon as you arrive into the airport, me or one of my friends will be waiting to say hello! There may even be some Elves too – keep a special eye out for my friend Nokki! I have to say that MY favourite part is when you get to feed me (or of course my friends) my favourite Reindeer treats! I do realise though, that although I think they are delicious, you prefer to eat a different type of dinner. Having seen (and smelt!) some of the food that the Hotels make, I would definitely go for the half board options, or for one of Santa’s Christmas Cabins. The best part of this is that you will then have a special Christmas gala dinner. This includes crackers, Christmas songs to join in singing and of course, a very tasty Christmas meal! Reindeer Sleigh Ride. I can’t promise we will fly up in the air as Santa does, as all of the Reindeer (including me) have to save some of our energy to ensure we can deliver all of your presents! Snuggling under warm blankets whilst I show you around my magical home, I know that you will love your ride. Once we have finished our explore around, I would love for you to meet me face to face. I love to be petted, and hope that you will take a photo with me to remember my friends & I when you are home. Aside from your adventure with me (which is of course my favourite), there are many other activities that you can try during the day. Adults can enjoy an amazing ride driving a snowmobile, whilst the children are towed in a special sled. You can even go in the evening and have a chance of seeing the beautiful Northern Lights! If anyone can see themselves as a future winter Olympian, there is even a toboggan run, or a chance to try skiing. Personally, I find skiing far to difficult, 4 legs are far too many to control! There is of course another amazing journey you can take on a sled…but I will let my friend Hannes tell you all about that another time. I can hear Santa coming to give me my tea so I best go for now.. I do hope that I can tell you more about my days up in Lapland soon – hopefully you can tell me all about you when we meet!
22 Oct 2014Nokkela the Elf Nokkela (or Nokki as we call her) is a fabulous young Elf. Nokki is my clever Elf assistant and she has many talents. She is really good at maths and helps me balance my books! Nokki is a talented storyteller and delights in telling everyone about my daily adventures and experiences. Nokkela actually means clever in Finnish so her name certainly suits her. Hannes the Husky Hannes is my fantastic husky dog! He is a very active dog and he loves anything sporty and outdoorsy, and oh boy is he good at it. He’s in charge of all the fantastic excursions we have here in Saariselkä. He loves talking about adventures and sports, and is never shy to give some expert advice when it comes to things he’s passionate about. Mrs Claus Mrs Claus is my amazing wife and best friend. She makes sure the whole team is properly fed and looked after; something that is vital when working as hard as us. Not only is she a fantastic cook, she amazes us every time with her fabulous baking! She loves passing on all her secrets and great skills such as cooking, baking and making Christmas decorations. Rudolf Rudolf and his red nose may not need a huge introduction, as I believe most of you know who he is. Because he is so playful, he is in charge of all the games, parties and fun events that we do here in Saariselkä. He loves sharing my secrets with all of the guests and will always get involved with the fabulous Christmas parties and games. Want to know more? Nooki, Hannes, Mrs Claus, Rudolf and I will be sharing all our secrets and enthusiasm with you right here, in the blog! So keep checking in for the latest updates from the team!
