Escorted tours specialist, Newmarket Holidays, has announced the launch of its Lapland Santa Experience Day Trips for 2023. With sales for Lapland in 2022 having proved extremely popular, and with Christmas fast approaching, the operator has put on sale 18 new dates for 2023, departing from a large number of regional airports, including Belfast, Cardiff and Norwich, as well as new options from Bristol and Luton.

Having operated family-friendly packages to the heart of Swedish Lapland for over 10 years, Newmarket Holidays’ 2023 Lapland Santa Experience Day trips will offer the only specially chartered flights to Santa’s airport (Pajala) on the 18 departure days. With tours exclusive to Newmarket Holidays and group sizes strictly limited, customers will have plenty of time to enjoy all the activities on offer throughout the magical day.

The new day tours include exclusive chartered direct return flights to Pajala in Swedish Lapland; return transfers to Santa’s village, warm and cosy thermal clothing (including gloves and boots); hot berry juice; a private family meeting with Father Christmas; a token Christmas gift for every child; an exhilarating snowmobile ride; a traditional reindeer sleigh ride; a husky sled ride through the snowy countryside and a hearty lunch of Swedish meatballs (or hot dog or vegetarian pasta dish).

During the last 10 years of operating tours to Lapland, Newmarket Holidays has specially chartered flights from 13 regional airports and hosts more than 2,500 customers each year. Prices for the new Lapland Santa Experience Day Trips for 2023 start from just £679 per adult and £599 per child.
