Make some dreams come true with these amazing holiday packages for Lapland in 2018. Treat your little ones to some of the magic of Christmas in the hometown of Santa Claus. This is one Christmas present that they will never forget!

Although we might cringe a bit when we say it out loud but whether you like it or not Christmas is coming! It doesn’t necessarily have to be a stressful time though. I find the best way to approach Christmas is to make sure that you plan ahead of time. If you’re sick of spending money on toys that will be just thrown in the corner in a months time I have something your kids won’t be able to forget in a hurry. We all know that memories are some of the most important things about Christmas. Without a doubt one of the most iconic, Christmassy places to make those memories in is Lapland. I mean I don’t have to tell you that, sure it’s where Santa lives!

My friends over at Travelnet have some magical packages that will give you the opportunity to plan something that your family will never forget. These kinds of trips are the treasured moments that will stay with your kids for the rest of their lives. The magic of Santa Claus is not something that will last forever, so why not make the most of it while you can!

The magical moments don’t just start when you get to Finland either! On top of everything that they provide for, Travelnet also sends out a personal letter from Santa himself to your kids. In the letter, Santa extends a personal invitation to your kids to come and see him in Lapland. Can you just imagine the look on your kid’s faces when they open that letter?

Lapland Package One: Santa’s Sleepover

If you are looking to really amp up the magic for the kids you can take advantage of the Santa’s sleepover package. With this package, you get to stay in Santa’s hometown! As with the other packages, there will be plenty of great activities that will be taken care of during your stay. On top of the activities mentioned above, you also get a private family visit to Santa.

Another great thing about this package is that you also have a couple of options when it comes to departure airports. No matter where you are in the country it won’t take as much organisation as you might think! Flights are departing from Dublin, Cork, Shannon, Kerry and Knock.

Make Your Kids’ Dreams Come True!

The great thing about a lot of these packages is that they offer flexible payment plans. This is a present that won’t be forgotten about in a few months after Christmas. Every year after the trip they will be talking about that amazing time they got to actually meet Santa in person. For weeks afterwards, they’ll be telling every second person about meeting the elves, playing in the snow and seeing the reindeers!

Probably my favourite part of the whole thing is that once you’ve booked you can sit back and relax. There’s no sweating over what you need to buy the kids because you are assured of something that they will never forget!

The departure dates for all of the packages are for right around Christmas. This means that you and your family can really start the build-up to the big day in some serious style. Even if you’re not as into Santa yourself there are plenty of great things that the kids can be involved in as well. This time period would be the peak time for the Northern Lights.
