Santa Breaks in Levi

3 & 4 night holidays to meet Santa in Lapland

Levi is a very popular resort with a bustling attractive village centre, festively lit streets and a wide selection of souvenir shops, cafés, bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance. As Finland's most famous ski resort, hosting the World Cup ski events on its uncrowded snow-sure pistes, Levi is a brilliant place for families to try skiing for the first time, as well as improving your skills.

Santa's Workshop and our activity locations are all only a short drive from resort, and the immediate local scenery is easily accessed by foot or snowshoes so you do not have to venture far to experience the wilderness and increase your chances of seeing the Northern Lights - making the most out of your short stay.

Santa Sleigh

DAY 1 Your Inghams Santa Breaks Reps will be waiting at Kittilä airport to warmly welcome you to Lapland and bring you by coach to your accommodation. Shortly after arriving in resort, you will collect your complimentary thermal suits and boots, which you will keep for the duration of your stay. There will be plenty of time to explore your snowy surroundings, build snowmen, find a toboggan and throw those mandatory snowballs. Join us for a welcome get-together to help you plan your activities for the next few days - see below for options. Other activities such as horse-sleigh rides and visits to the SnowHotel (from mid-Dec) may also be available locally. 

DAY 2 Today is the day! The time has come to meet the big man himself. A magical jaunt is in store with a
visit to one of Santa’s enchanting workshops. Here each family will enjoy an exclusive private meeting with
Santa. Make sure you’ve written your letters! You can also take part in supervised festive games, cook
sausages on an open fire, help the elves bake gingerbread biscuits and try making your own decorations
in Elf School. Outdoors you can meet Comet the Reindeer, catch the snowmobile train or have great fun
tobogganing in the snow. 

Husky Sleigh

Make the most of your stay by booking our exciting and excellent-value optional excursions. Perhaps a combined husky and reindeer farm visit with sleigh rides in the morning, followed by an exhilarating family-friendly snowmobile safari in the afternoon - see details below. Or why not try a few hours skiing on the slopes? Levi is an excellent resort to give downhill skiing a go if you haven’t tried it before.
Alternatively, wander around the local shops collecting souvenirs or relax and enjoy a sauna at your accommodation in true Finnish style!

In the evening, get ready for a festive ‘Dinner with Santa’ including party games and disco. Tuck into a buffet of traditional roast turkey Christmas dinner plus Lappish specialities. The evening gets into full swing with a visit from Santa and his reindeer. All children will receive a small gift and certificate from Santa - souvenirs that can be treasured for years. Please note that ‘Dinner with Santa’ takes place on Day 4 for guests staying 4 nights


 (for 4 night guests only)Levi is also Finland’s most famous ski resort, hosting World Cup ski events on its uncrowded snowsure pistes, and guests on the 4-night Santa Break can pre-book our exclusive Inghams 'Ski Taster' package to give the sport a go on Levi's beginner-friendly slopes (tuition and instructor included). Don't worry, you don't necessarily have to bring separate ski gear with you as many guests ski in their included all-in-one thermal suits. However, we would recommend bringing a pair of ski socks with you if you plan to try skiing to make sure your feet are comfortable.  Or perhaps you would prefer to wander around the local craft shops, relax at the hotel swimming pool or simply play in the snow. Then get ready for a festive gala dinner in the evening (see Day 3 for details). After dinner, perhaps the Northern Lights will appear for that perfect end to your holiday.


DAY 5 (or DAY 4 for 3 night guests) After a magical few days, it’s time to say goodbye to your new friends before being transferred by coach to the airport for your flight home.

Please note the above itinerary may vary according to arrival and departure times.
