Santa Breaks in Levi

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. 
All of our Santa Breaks include an amazing half day full of atmosphere and fun for the children. Visit Santa's Elves Hideaway where you can wander through a secret snow tunnel and around the snow filled forest to find many festive activities to enjoy. From making gingerbread cookies and decorations with the elves to having the chance to meet Comet the reindeer and various snow games for youngsters - with tobogganing and snowballs always on the agenda. Plus of course, the highlight of the day-  

A private meeting with Santa Claus himself guaranteed for each family!

Santa's Elves Hideaway at Tonttula, and our activity locations are all only a short drive from the 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. 

We also include arctic thermal suits and warm snow boots for all adults and children (3 years and over - as these breaks are not recommended for infants). Meaning you can 'come as you are' with your normal winter outdoor clothing, and we'll do the rest, so you can relax and enjoy the Lapland snow.

There is always time to join your choice of additional optional activities such as husky, reindeer and snowmobile safaris or perhaps try skiing or snowboarding. 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.

Finally, to round off your break, enjoy a very special Farewell Feast full of festivities including, fun games, a disco and a small present and certificate for each child. For winter 2019/20 Santa Breaks children can expect a visit from Santa to say goodbye. For winter 2020/21 Santa will be exclusively met at his hideaway home! 

For the ultimate trip of festive fun, our 7 night Lapland holidays offer the opportunity to extend your stay. Many of the properties available for a Santa Break are also available for a 7 night stay and whilst the visit with Santa & thermals are not included as standard, simply add the 'Santa's Hideaway' excursion and thermal clothing to your holiday package at the time of booking.

Enjoy an unforgettable short break in December to get the whole family well and truly into the festive spirit in the run up to Christmas!

Our Santa Breaks include:

  • Half day at Santa's Elves Hideaway including private meeting with Santa and games and more with the Elves
  • Thermal Suits and Snow Boots (3yrs +)
  • Farewell Feast with gala meal, small gift, certificate and disco!
  • Option to add husky, reindeer & snowmobile safaris
  • Option to add ski/snowboard taster
  • Choice of 4 accommodations in Levi (please scroll down for the options)
