Newmarket Holidays

Join us for the most exciting and fun-filled day ever. Fly direct from Bournemouth to the still, white wilderness of Lapland where, as every child knows, a Very Special Person lives. Here, you will be entertained with husky dog safaris, reindeer sleigh rides and exciting snowmobile adventures and have fun in the snow, with toboggan rides, snowball fights and the chance to build a snowman.

The day’s highlight will almost certainly be the torch-lit walk into the most secret part of the forest where a cosy, hidden cabin and a private meeting with Santa Claus himself awaits. It's an exclusive festive day trip that your family will remember forever!


Santa Claus’ homeland of Lapland is the stuff of fairytales. Cue snow-dusted forests that stretch for miles, cosy log cabins that look like they’ve been plucked from a storybook, and a population that’s made up of more reindeer than people. Lapland pulls out all the stops over the festive period, so there’s nowhere better to get in to the Christmas spirit. Story-telling around crackling fires, reindeer sleigh rides through the woods and, of course, meet-and-greets with Santa himself. Discover Lapland this winter with Thomson.
