This is a sample itinerary, a full itinerary will be given in resort. We hold the right for changes in the program itinerary according to weather conditions.
Private Santa’s meeting: The highlight of this holiday, meeting the grand man himself. During your stay you will go out searching by snowmobile where you will head off to the forest. Keep your eyes peeled as you look out for the elves on the way. As you near you can see moving lanterns as the elves sneak up through the forest and greet you on your sleigh. They know the secret path to Santa’s cabin and will guide your family through the lantern lit path straight to his door. As the children knock on his door will they wake him up from his little nap around the fire?
**Santa service: Bring with you your children’s letter to Santa along with a small gift from their wish list and we will have them waiting in the cabin. Imagine your child’s eyes light up when not only has he got their letter but he has already got one gift from their wish list ready for them!
*Lunch in the ice restaurant is weather dependent. Should the ice restaurant not be ready or the temperature be extremely cold lunch will be served around the fire in a traditional kota.
