Ylläs is an idyllic unspoiled Lappish village with marvellous scenery and high-quality cosy log cabins dotted around the woods. Äkäs Hotel is the main focus of entertainment but there is also a handful of colourful local bars and restaurants and an excellent, large supermarket. With stunning unspoiled natural scenery, the skies here are especially clear, ideal for witnessing the magical Northern Lights. You may even spot reindeer roaming around.
All of our Santa Breaks include an amazing half day full of atmosphere and fun for the children. Visit one of Santa's Elves Hideaway and make gingerbread with the elves, don’t miss the chance to meet Comet the reindeer and enjoy various snow games for youngsters - with tobogganing and snowballs always on the agenda. Plus of course, there's the highlight of the day -
A private meeting with Santa Claus himself guaranteed for each family!
We also include arctic thermal suits and warm snow boots for all adults and children (3 years and older - 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.
Finally, to round off your break, enjoy a very special Farewell Feast full of festivities including fun games and a disco.
