Lapland/Sant experience in Aviemore ?

Hi

I read in the Times last year about a 'Lapland' experience in Aviemore. It sounded really positive and a great alternative to Lapland.

I have searched on line and can't seem to find anything about it. Only mention of a Santa Land from the late 90's ?

We are going to be staying with my brother in Kinross over the Christmas and New year and would like to consider breaking our stay by driving up the Aviemore with the kids (age 5 & 7) for a couple of days.

Any information/suggestions etc at all would be greatfully received.

Thanks for your time

Flossy

It will be worth keeping an eye on the activities that are lined up by the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre for Christmas and New Year.

Your kids will love the chance to see the reindeers close up at their age.

More info can be found at their website:

Hi Flossy,

The other thing is the dog sledge centre in Aviemore. See http://www.sled-dogs.co.uk/index.php

I did it myself a few months ago and it's awesome! Alan and Fiona are very passionate and you'll enjoy the ride.

For more things to do in the Aviemore area have a look at www.visitaviemore.com and www.greaterspeyside.com

Enjoy!

Rene
