Take your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews on a day trip they’ll never forget as you journey 100 kilometres above the Arctic Circle to a sparkling landscape of snowy forests. For here, in the remote heart of Swedish Lapland, you’ll find Pajala – the secret home of the real Santa Claus, his reindeer and his happy team of helpers.
For a few precious days in December, you can go on a day trip to Lapland on a specially chartered flight – the only ‘Santa’ flight into Pajala on that day – for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a natural winter wonderland that’s as far away from the everyday, increasingly commercial Christmas celebration as you could ever hope to find.

Fly direct to Pajala on a specially chartered flight to Swedish Lapland. This will be the only ‘Santa’ flight to Pajala on this day and numbers are strictly limited, which means you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy all the activities on offer throughout the magical day.
Your Lapp hosts will meet you, dressed in traditional Sami costume, before you take a short, warm and comfortable coach journey to Santa’s Home.
After a quick change into the cosy, thermal garments provided, you’ll head out into the snow. Enjoy a magical ride in a traditional reindeer-drawn sleigh, a trip through the countryside on a dog-sled pulled by real huskies and a thrilling ride on a snowmobile. Between the organised activities, you’ll have time to enjoy the snow, with toboggan rides, snowman building and snowball fights!
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head into the welcoming warmth of the main building, and tuck in to a delicious two-course lunch. Warming hot berry juice and biscuits will also be available throughout the day.
But the highlight of the day will surely come as you set foot on the ‘secret path’ through the forest, and follow the twinkling lanterns to Santa’s log cabin home. Father Christmas will be waiting there to greet you personally; the perfect end to a perfect, magical day.
