Lapland, the home of Father Christmas. You can feel its magic the minute you set foot in the snow – pure and glistening for as far as the eye can see. December in Lapland always guarantees a white Christmas…
The largest and northernmost region of Finland, Lapland is famous not just for ‘The Big Man’, but for its scenery, nature and wildlife. Amongst the snow-covered conifer trees and the wondrous hush of the sparkling landscape live huskies, and as many reindeer as people! It’s also a great place to see the Aurora Borealis – the blazing night sky colours of the Northern Lights – on a clear winter’s eve.
If the prospect of riding with huskies, being pulled by reindeer, and perhaps meeting Father Christmas himself excites you, you’ve come to the right place. We have an exceptional family Lapland holiday for you this December.
Your trip includes
- Return flights on 7th and 10th December from Birmingham Airport to Kuusamo Airport
- Return transfers from Kuusamo airport to your hotel
- 3 nights’ accommodation, breakfast and dinner at the Scandic Rukahovi or Hotel RukaVillage (based on a minimum of four people sharing a superior room)

Meet Huskies & Reindeer
Unmissable’s® expedition to Lapland’s ‘Unofficial Transport Hub’ is extra-special. Meet the reindeer, take a high-speed ride with huskies, play children’s snow games, and enjoy a delicious lunch in the most stunning of surroundings.
Then it’s your opportunity to get to know the fastest dogs on snow – the huskies. These high-speed hounds have been bred to pull sleds and act as taxis and couriers.
Once you‘ve been introduced to the dogs themselves, you’ll be off on a 2.5km husky sled safari. This trip, through the beauty and serenity of the forest, is a fantastic experience for snow trekkers of all ages.
Our snowmobiling trip is an unforgettable family experience and has something for everyone. Let us take you far into the dreamy surroundings of Lapland to enjoy its silence and tranquility, only 30 minutes from your Ruka base.
Experienced and knowledgeable guides will take you through beautiful scenery, and you’ll stop off for a hot juice drink on the way.
Adults will be able to ride the snowmobiles themselves after some tuition. Children will sit on sleds pulled by the guides’ snowmobiles – great fun and just as bumpy!
Meeting Father Christmas
The real reason we’re all here (you too parents and grandparents!) of course, is to meet Father Christmas…
Well it just so happens that Father Christmas has taken a trip down from his secret home in the mountains to his holiday hideaway. And he’s keen to meet some special guests…
Your family is invited to a very special lunch with Father Christmas, Mrs Christmas and all the elves at their secret Lapland location. And if you’re good, there’s a special gift for every child.
Your family-friendly holiday in Ruka
Ruka’s the perfect base for your Lapland adventure. Family-friendly and intimate but with its own special buzz… it offers loads of activities for children of all ages.
And at Unmissable® we go the extra mile in welcoming you. On arrival at your hotel, your complimentary warm snow clothes, boots and gloves will be laid out waiting for you – especially handy for saving space in your luggage.
There’s even a drying cabinet in the room to make sure your gear’s warm in the morning and you’re all ready for another day of fun.
