LONDON, October 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Thomson is getting into the Christmas spirit this December as it launches holidays to Lapland. Offering both day trips and longer stays from three to seven nights departing from 10 different regional airports, Thomson's programme will feature three resorts:
Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland is a lively city which offers fantastic snow sports in addition to the Santa Park which features ice sculptures, elf shows and the chance to meet the big man himself.
Saariselka, in the North of Lapland, where holidaymakers can ski or go on a reindeer or husky ride. Plus, it's a great place to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights in the night sky.
Yllas, an hour and half from the capital offers more than 300km of ski tracks, snowshoeing and the opportunity to go on a reindeer safari.
Claire Goldring, Product Manager says:
"Lapland's popularity with British tourists continues to grow, so we're really excited to announce our new Lapland holidays and are confident they will prove popular with our customers. It's a destination with so much to offer from Husky and Reindeer sleigh riding and Snowmobiling, to the Northern Lights and of course meeting Santa as well as some fantastic festive entertainment."
