Last Day In Lapland: Part 4.

We had to get up at 10 past 6 on our last day in Lapland, as we’d booked in for a Husky Heaven Safari. The coach left at 20 past 7, and was supposed to deliver us back to the hotel at 9:15, which would leave us just over an hour to pack before we were taken to the airport. Because, of course, we hadn’t bothered packing the night before…

DS was not impressed about having to get out of bed at such an ungodly time;  he’s a 12 hours a night kind of boy. He consequently refused to go to the toilet and of course we didn’t dare put him in his snowsuit until he’d been, but in the end we bribed him with our last remaining Tesco’s chocolate pancake. We wore all our kit down to breakfast, which was interesting and hopped straight on the bus after eating. read more

We Went To Lapland With Esprit: Part 2

Our second day in Lapland was a free day; we had to organise our own activities.

We were in Saariselka on Santa’s Spectacular Break, as opposed to Santa’s Magic Break, and I’d recommend the extra day if you can stretch to it.

Even if you don’t do any of the paid-for activities (Northern Lights chasing, Snow Mobile Safari, Skiing, Snow Shoeing, Reindeer Safari and Husky Safari are all offered), you will easily be able to spend a day playing in the snow, tobogganing, and if you are staying at the Holiday Club Hotel, swimming in the pool. read more
