Lapland 4 day example Itinerary

BWW globe

Time is fleeting and making the most of these special years counts.  Christmas is the perfect time to do that and Lapland the perfect place. We find the key to an incredible Lapland trip is in tailoring it perfectly to the different ages of children involved.  But, are you ever really too old for a visit to Santa?

Exploring the Arctic

Welcomed by your personal host for your trip, you will be escorted to our private lounge for your arctic winter clothing that will keep you cosy and dry in the coming days. Your car will whisk you away for the 15 minute drive into the Arctic wilderness, where your Christmas wooden chalet awaits.

Whilst preparing dinner chef will welcome the children into the kitchen to bake some gingerbread cookies from a traditional family recipe. After dinner it’s time to put on the snowshoes and get in the toboggans to go explore the region. Once comfortable with your arctic transport your host will take you out in hunt of the Northern Lights.

 

 

Private jet and snowmobiles

Huskies and snow mobiles

After breakfast you’re off to meet the huskies for a morning of dog sledding. With younger children safely wrapped up in the warm furs of the sleigh, you’ll learn the art of driving a team of dogs. As you slide through the snow and into the wilderness, the barking of the dogs subsides and all you can hear are the pounding of paws and the sound of the sledge on the snow. You are entirely in the moment.

Your arctic adventure continues as you head out on state-of-the-art snowmobiles. Through forests, over hills, you’ll drive deep into the wilderness where not many have been. You’ll get the chance to let rip across frozen lakes and experience the speed, freedom and adrenaline rush as these machines roar over the snow. As snowmobiling is only for those who have drivers licences, younger family members will spend their time being pulled along in a sleigh or have the chance to try a mini-skidoo.

MAKE THIS ITINERARY YOURS

We build each and every big wide world adventure and budget from the ground up. Once we understand your family dynamics, interests and the journey you want to make together, we will create a hand-crafted trip just for you. 

The Search for Santa

Today your lodge will welcome a special visitor; one of Santa’s most trusted elves. And he has an invitation. A personal invitation for the younger members of your family from the main man himself.

The first stop on your Christmas adventure is the home of Santa’s reindeer. The reindeer are waiting to take your family on the most magical journey. Deep in the forest, a hideaway can be found (if you know the right Elf). As you approach the tiny cottage, with smoke billowing out of the chimney and Elves disappearing behind trees, you’ll be unable to imagine the delight and joy of the younger children as they dash away to hear a familiar “ho ho ho” before being invited in for a traditional story by the fire. This day will live on in your children’s memories forever.

 

Husky Ride in Arctic

Reindeer horn art & Departure

Before heading back to the airport your final stop will be to meet a traditional Lappish artisan. After introducing you to some of the materials and methods used you’ll get the chance to go exploring for your shredded reindeer horns that can be found in the Lapland wilderness. As the family work on their masterpieces your artisan host will be readying traditional delicacies and lighting a fire for you to enjoy as she shares stories from her native people, the perfect end to your Lapland adventure.
