We're thinking about taking the kids on a 'Snow Holiday' in December 09. Had a look at the lapland breaks but wonder if you are paying for the novelty (are they worth it?). Would rather have a proper Christmassy holiday with lots of snow activities and a bit of Santa rather than the other way around.

Any advice/direction to good deals would be welcome. Cheers!

They'll be 4 and 7 so probably be tobogganing....

aww thats the same as mine. im sure they would love tobogganning. it has to be cheaper to do that than lapland, we looked at it and it is like 2000 for the day there.

i would steer clean from the santa breaks and book flights hotels myself.
we went to Ronvaneimi in finnish lapland a few years ago to raise money for when you wish upon a star childrens charity and they have a Santa village which is even linked to webcams so your can text your family back home who can go online and see your kids with the big man himself,
there is plenty of activities to do round that area i would just research with local tourist board, gets dark quite early around 3pm.
the 3 or 4 day trips are very expensive through travel agents but so are flights unless to fly to mainstream airport and use trains to get into artic circle.

Good luck, its a fantantic place i only went for a day but would go back for 3-4 days next time

Suppose you are paying for the journey out there....so you might as well stay around and make the most of the country....I have a feeling that there might not actually be a lot to do for a week in lapland (and you don't get much light)...maybe a diferent country....Germany perhaps (they must be big into Santa).

We went to Switzerland when I was about 4 or 5 and my brother was about 9 or 10, and we learnt to ski while we were there and spent time building snowmen, climbing mountains and tobogganing

So skiing isnt necessarily too old for them

Will broaden my horizons! Although I do have this dodgy hip! Our youngest will be nearer 5....how did you get on?

My brother loved it, I liked it until they moved us where I couldnt see my parents! Other than that one afternoon I thought it was great though, and loved showing off to my parents what we had learnt

It was a magical place and if it wasnt for my health being too bad to go on a plane, I would go back tomorrow. I am 21 now but still remember it, which is impressive considering my age when we went, just shows how much I enjoyed it! Think we had more fun there than we did when we went to florida and did disney a few years later
