A childhood dream to see the real Santa and it was just perfect. 2 grandparents, 4 grandchildren - aged from 4 - 9 years including 2 from Australia - and 4 parents shared the experience of Lapland in early December. The trip was booked through Esprit and we stayed in the Gielas wing of the Tunturi hotel in Saariselka. The room was warm & comfortable and included a sauna and a drying cabinet for outdoor gear. I was most impressed with Esprit's organisation of the 3 night package which was efficient, friendly and worked like a well-oiled machine. Plenty of snow activities which were never over-crowded and no queuing and the husky sledding was awesome. The skidoo ride through the forest to find Santa, including naughty elves, was pure magic. Saariselka is quiet, remote & completely un-commercialised with an excellent toboggan run nearby. I would have no hesitation in recommending Esprit and the Tunturi for that once-in-a-lifetime journey into Santa's homeland.
