TUI has just released its Lapland Christmas holidays for next year.
The trips include everything from hotel and flights to Santa meet & greet and reindeer rides.
Finland‘s Lapland is in the far north, close to the Arctic Circle.
Lapland is known as Santa Claus’ birthplace and offers storybook settings like snow-covered woods, cosy log houses, and reindeer.
Lapland flights from London take about three and a half hours.
TUI flies to different destinations in Lapland, so there’s something for everyone.
You also have the option between day trips and short breaks, however, it’s worth noting the day trips usually work out pricier.
The Lapland holidays are available on both half-board and full-board basis.

Rovaniemi is the capital, and you’ll find shops, restaurants and nightlife – making it perfect for a snowy city break.
Levi, Pallas, Yllas, and Kuusamo, on the other hand, are the best options if you’re after winter sports.
Saariselka is often described as a “winter paradise”, while the remote Luosto and Hetta are perfect for spotting the Northern Lights.
The days will follow an itinerary to ensure you get to enjoy all the best Lapland activities.
Children will be able to meet Santa and the elves and ride in a traditional reindeer sleigh and a husky sled through the snow.
You can also take a short break to Lapland, with prices starting from £899pp.
Here are some of the best deals we’ve found:
- 3 nights half-board at Lapland Hotel Hetta – from £899pp on December 4, 2023
- 3 nights full-board at Hotel Snow Princess in Ylläs – from £996pp on December 3, 2023
- 3 nights half-board at Winter Wonderland Hotel and Log Cabins in Rovaniemi – from £899pp on November
It’s important to remember that Lapland has very low temperatures, typically ranging from 0 to -20C.
So you’ll have to pack the warmest clothing, like thermal suits, wool socks, sweaters, snow boots, winter jackets, and cosy outerwear.
