The highlight of this Santa holiday to Finland is, of course, is a trip to see the man himself, a personal encounter that begins with a ride through the forest on a snowmobile sled. You'll then be met by one of St. Nick's elven helpers and guided up a candlelit path to meet Father Christmas in his private log cabin. The rest of your stay is given over to activities, with everything from husky safaris and reindeer sleigh rides to ice fishing trips and snowmobile excursions making the most of your snow surrounds. And be sure to make use of the free toboggans that the hotel provides – guaranteed fun for all the family.
