6 Fun Things To Do In Lapland

We all know that planning a trip to visit Santa is a big thing and that trawling the internet to carry out research can take a long time. Travelling with Esprit Santa’s Lapland takes the stress out of the planning. In addition to the guaranteed Private Family Meeting with the man himself – Santa Claus, here are 6 fun activities always included in our trips to make your Santa trip special.

 

 

 

 

1 – Husky Sledding

Mums, Dads and Grandparents all get a go at driving the husky sled, after meeting the huskies. Children get to sit back and enjoy the ride onboard the sled as it whooshes along the snow. With the husky’s full of excitement, they just want to run and have fun.
