Fancy letting the kids hand-deliver their letters to Santa this Christmas?

Thomson is putting on a day trip to Lapland this year from Belfast International Airport.

A chartered flight will leave Aldergrove on Friday, December 11 for Rovaniemi Airport in Finland, where families will travel to the epicenter of festive spirit.

"Experience everything from husky and reindeer sleigh rides, to training at Santa’s very own elf school and making cookies with Mrs Claus," said Charlotte Brenner, Marketing Manager at Thomson.

"The highlight of course; meeting with Santa Claus himself in his home high above the Arctic Circle.

"It’s not all about the children though as adults can enjoy a drink at the ice bar while admiring the ice sculptures in the Ice Queens Ice Gallery. Adults can also enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in Mrs Claus’ Bakery while watching the kids decorate gingerbread cookies with the elves."

The 14-hour round trip day-trip package costs £399 per adult and £299 per child.

This includes:

  • Return flights and transfers
  • Hire of full thermal clothing
  • Activities at Santa park
  • A personal Arctic crossing certificate,
  • Lappish passport
  • A visit to Santa himself
  • Lunch and warm drinks throughout the day

Book through your local Thomson Travel Shop or online.
