Holiday with Kids - - Kids' Experiences -

Known for its Aurora Bo­re­alis, rein­deers and Santa him­self, Fin­nish La­p­land is a mag­i­cal won­der­land of fam­ily fun. Lo­cated 200 kilo­me­tres north of the Arc­tic Cir­cle, Äkäs­lom­polo vil­lage is your home for this six-day win­ter ad­ven­ture. Find a nook in your cosy, fire-lit cabin to ob­serve the night sky in La­p­land with no light or noise pol­lu­tion. It’s hard not to be awed by the crisp beauty of the night in the Arc­tic wilder­ness, with the bright colours of the North­ern Lights danc­ing above. Spend a day among Santa’s antler-adorned friends at a lo­cal rein­deer farm and learn about the indige­nous Sami cul­ture and life in the Arc­tic. There are also huskies, ice-fish­ing, snow­mo­bil­ing and a visit to the Snow Vil­lage in store. Flash for­ward to Elämän­luukku to ex­pe­ri­ence the Arc­tic Cross­ing Cer­e­mony, and for lit­tle ones ask­ing, “Where’s Santa?”, 50 De­grees North has some­thing very spe­cial lined up… a pri­vate visit with Santa him­self! What bet­ter way to get your tykes be­hav­ing well enough to stay on the nice list? fifty­de­greesnorth.com
