Winter wonderland adventures in Lapland

Why not embrace the festive season this year with a trip of a lifetime?

So often, we all dread the onset of winter as the cold weather takes over and the Christmas rush sends us all into a panic.

I know a way to avoid all that and a way to spend time in December that will transport you to another world and straight back to the magic of your childhood when all we had to worry about was getting to sleep on Christmas Eve and making sure Santa didn’t catch us with our eyes open!

And boy, have we got just the ticket.

Our friends at talkholiday have some truly wonderful travel deals and ideas for a winter break.

Tucked away in the Arctic Circle lies a special place… Lapland.

Home to fairytale scenery, it’s just THE place to be in the run up to the most wonderful time of the year.

Picture the scene…snow dusted forests, peaceful lakes, log cabins, reindeer and the main man himself…Santa Claus.

Even the hardest of hearts would find it difficult not to be swept away by the magic of it all.

Santa and his elves aside, there’s also some pretty cool bars and nightlife to enjoy too and you can always find a nice spot to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights which are best viewed during the darkest months (November to February).

So, if you fancy a dream break to enjoy this magical wonderland, look no further.
