Lapland is a magical place. If you're interested in a holiday that has your family exploring Lapland in search of Father Christmas and his elves, or looking for an exciting vacation spent racing through the arctic tundra on snowmobiles, reindeer sleighs, or husky sleds, than you've come to the right place.
While for many, meeting Father Christmas (Joulupukki, as the Finnish call him) is the height of the adventure; Lapland has much more to offer. It's a fantastic opportunity to visit a land full of mystery and magic. A once in a lifetime winter holiday destination; where you can push the boundaries and drive a skidoo through deep untouched snow or sample the delights of a romantic reindeer sleigh ride. The scenery is simply majestic and the sheer silence is often only broken by the sound of huskies barking excitedly in anticipation of their next sleigh run.
With a Canterbury Travel tour there's the promise of fun for everyone.
Yet, we must not forget that this is the natural homeland of Father Christmas and our specialist tours have been produced, with the aim of ensuring that all children leave Finnish Lapland safe in the knowledge that they have met the real Santa Claus. A kindly old gentleman, now over 400 years old, Santa still cares for the true Christmas spirit and he hopes that all children appreciate the thought behind the gifts they receive, rather than the gifts themselves.
If you wish to experience the very best that Lapland has to offer, join us in search of Santa and be delighted as we merge fantasy with reality.
Canterbury Travel is, and always has been, a pioneer in the travel industry. 29 years ago we began our tours to Lapland and we haven't stopped since. Our tours cater for families, couples, large and small groups, and even bespoke programmes to suite your needs.
