5 days - Spend Christmas in the heart of Northern Finland

Spend Christmas this year in Northern Finland. Known for their seclusion, mountain views and aurora skies, the Levi Glass Igloos are the perfect spot for a White Christmas.

These well-appointed glass igloos are complete with private kitchenettes, showers, and toilets. Dinner is a Lappish affair and is served daily in the glass-roofed restaurant. Christmas Eve will be a special 4-course traditional Finnish Christmas dinner.

Fill your days with winter activities - dogsledding, snowmobiling and a reindeer safari plus a special Santa program. In addition, not too far away is the bustling ski resort of Levi for winter shopping, evening skiing and further activities.

Due to high demand, many of our Christmas tours become fully booked over the 24/25 December dates. 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.

Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive Kittilä and transfer to your glass igloo accommodation

Transfer from Kittilä airport to your glass igloo via the warm clothing and boots pick up spot. Check in is from 4pm and once this is completed, settle into your glass igloo. Each glass igloo has a kitchenette, shower and toilet. The windows are insulated and electrically heated to keep them from frosting. The kitchenette is equipped with a breakfast set for two, electric stove, microwave and kettle, toaster and fridge. In addition, the igloos have a radio/CD player, a hair dryer and a socket for car engine heaters. At the centre of the igloo is a motorised double bed that can be converted into twin beds.

Enjoy your first evening in Lapland. With no light pollution and no noise you can truly feel the beauty of the Arctic night, admire the night sky and hopefully see the Northern Lights. Hear the silence of the wilderness and breathe in the cleanest air in Europe. Any clear night, grab a blanket, wander outside and watch for the Northern Lights.

After lunch, welcome to magical land of elves! There's plenty of excitement and joy! Feel the exhilaration of Christmas as you glide down the snow-covered slope on a sled, engage in a spirited game of elf football, bake delicious gingerbread cookies, learn to make X-mas crafts and much more. And what would the Christmas magic be without meeting Santa Claus himself? Step inside his home, engage in conversation, and experience the wonder of meeting the legendary figure of Christmas. Meeting Santa Claus is full of surprises!

After a while Santa will take his book of secrets, where the elves have written things about all children. He will discuss things with each person and child. After discussions and noticing that all have been good boys and girls, Santa will give a small present for every child. Other presents he will bring you on Christmas. At the end of the visit you have possibility to take a photo together with Santa.

After the 30 min meeting with Santa, hot drinks and local sweet pastry are served in a cozy wooden cottage.

Important Information

The superior igloos can fit one child, or two children with a squeeze! The children's bed is a 3-seated sofa-bed with additional mattress and linen placed on top. Activities detailed in this itinerary suit children above the age of 8.

Please let us know the height of your child as this determines if they can sit on snowmobile with the parent, since it is much more enjoyable than the sledge. Minimum height for this is 140cm.
