Welcome to Lapland, or, as the locals say, tervetuloa! Finnish Lapland is just as captivating for a winter getaway as the storybooks imagine. Located in the Arctic Circle, it’s home to Santa Claus, his reindeer, elves, enchanted forests and mountains of snow. Visit this winter wonderland and there’s always something magical to do and see. What’s more, because it’s only a few hours away by plane, sled, or Santa’s sleigh, Finnish Lapland is perfect for a day trip too - and the kids will love it.

With sleigh rides, snow-capped peaks to toboggan down, igloos to explore and dog-sledding with Husky’s, Lapland is pure heaven for adventure lovers. Where else can you meet Santa and his reindeer? Kick off your festive season with a massive ho ho ho and get exploring this December, we’ve rounded up the pick of our favourite seasonal getaways, straight from Southampton airport.
