Pre Christmas with Santa

Travelling to Europe to stay with family over Christmas? Wanting to visit Lapland just before the crowded Christmas period? These independent (and one escorted tour, Lapland Winter Magic) pre-Christmas packages are designed for you.

Due to high demand, many of our Christmas tours are fully booked over the 24/25 December dates, however, most of our tours now have pre-Christmas departures running just before the busy Christmas period. These tours include a Santa visit which is still very exciting to the children as Santa can talk to them about what they are hoping to receive from him and his preparations for his imminent departure. Flights and activities are also easier to prepare at this stage.

Our Scandinavian experts can assist you with flight connections from North America to meet these tours as well as adding pre- and post- accommodation in the Nordic capitals. All the cities have many lovely Christmas markets to visit as well as activities such as ice-skating and strolling through the Christmas shops during your stopover.
