There’s 30 sleeps left until Christmas Day but only seven sleeps until First Choice’s first flight for the winter takes off to Lapland!* Fly into either Rovaniemi or Kittila to meet Santa in person and see the magic of this winter wonderland with a First Choice Lapland holiday – ranging from day trips and three or four night stays, to seven night New Year’s Eve holidays.

Hitch a ride with a husky, speed on a snowmobile, enrol at Elf school, sleigh with Rudolph, and if you’re really lucky, catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis – the spectacular Northern Lights. There really is nowhere better to be during December, courtesy of First Choice.
