Monarch Holidays launches 2015 Christmas in Lapland packages
With October now upon us, and Christmas cards and mince pies firmly ensconced in the shops, it’s definitely not too soon to be thinking about the festive season – and for kids and families, there’s nothing more festive than meeting Santa in Lapland.
Various UK attractions have tried to ‘recreate’ Lapland in recent years – often with disastrous results and a distinct lack of snow – but it’s fair to say that nothing can beat the real thing, complete with reindeer, log fires, breathtaking skies, and, yes, proper snow.
Happily, if you’re looking to make your dreams come true with Christmas in Lapland (the real one), our friends at Monarch Holidays – listed in our Directory here – are just the people to oblige, with over 20 years’ experience of organising Lapland trips for kids (and their parents) of all ages.
Book one of their Lapland holiday trips this winter and you’ll be taken to a magical winter wonderland, deep inside the Arctic Circle, where you’ll find Santa Claus and his trusty team of elves spreading happiness and fun.
You’ll dash through frozen woodlands, riding on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, a toboggan or a snowmobile. You’ll be able to drop in and see Santa at his Post Office, who – naturally – has a gift for everyone, before warming up with a relaxing hot drink next to a blazing log fire. And, if you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the spectacular Northern Lights!
Monarch Holiday’s Lapland holiday trips depart from 3 to 28 December 2015 from Gatwick and Manchester Airports, with 3 night trip, 4 night trip and 5 night trip options. Each trip includes: free in-flight meals and short transfers; excellent accommodation in 4 or 5 star hotels; a private meeting with Santa; reindeer, snowmobile and husky dog rides; and hire of ski suits and boots.
Better still is that Holiday & Travel Directory readers can benefit from a great extra discount when you book by 12 October. Just quote the voucher code LAPLAND25 at checkout to save £25 per person off any Lapland trip from Monarch Holidays, with no minimum spend. (Just don’t try to enter more than one voucher per transaction, as it won’t work!)
With a deal like that, it’s definitely time to ‘Ready, steady, snow!’
