Christmas & New Years
You have come to the right place if you are interested in visiting Scandinavia in the festive season. We go out of our way to offer you unparalleled white Christmas experiences in our region, from sleeping in glass igloos under the skies of Finland or a log cabin in Sweden. Meeting Santa in Lapland is an unforgettable family highlight.
We specialise in multi-generation family travel experiences and escorted tours. Read here for reviews from families who have travelled at Christmas time with 50 Degrees North.
Availability is already extremely limited over the exact Christmas dates for 2024. At this stage, we encourage travelling before this peak travel season; internal flights are considerably cheaper, it is less crowded, and the Santa experiences and atmosphere are nearly identical. New Year's Eve is also a great time to visit with local fireworks and gala events.
Our Scandinavian experts can assist you with flight connections 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.
Many of our holidays include private cabins and apartments for your family only, with activities in small groups.
Our Lapland Christmas Magic tour was the winner of the 2023 Luxury Travel Gold List Award in the Family Luxury Experience category, independently judged with public voting.
