Lapland holidays: The perfect getaway for families and couples alike

When you think of holidays in Lapland one image often springs to mind - a portly man dressed in red, with ruddy cheeks, a penchant for reindeers and a seemingly insatiable appetite for mince pies. Now though, premium tour operator Transun is opening families' and couples' eyes to everything this enchanting region has to offer.

Even though Father Christmas holds a special place in the heart of those visiting this dazzlingly beautiful location, Lapland holidays have loads more to offer. Husky-drawn sleds, snowmobile rides - even hot air balloon flights over the snow-white landscape are available with tour operators that organise every last detail of your perfect trip.

Of course, if you and your family were looking for the perfect Christmas trip then Lapland is the natural choice. There is nothing quite like seeing your child's face light up at the sight of Santa Claus sitting by a fireplace in a log cabin nestled in the wilderness of this winter wonderland and you'll be sure to remember it for years to come.

Even the keenest Grinch or most fervent Scrooge will have their heart melted by the man with the belly like a bowlful of jelly. Team a visit to Santa's workshop with everything else Lapland has to offer and you've got the family holiday to end all family holidays.

Meet Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen (perhaps even Rudolph) as you glide over the snow and ice in a sled, ramp up the speed with a family trip on snowmobiles or just tuck in with your loved one after the kids are in bed and enjoy a log fire and maybe something a little stronger than a glass of milk!

Lapland is renowned for its premium family holidays and it's easy to see why, but more and more people are deciding to tie the knot in snowy surroundings and venture further afield for their big day. The true meaning of a white wedding really takes hold with Lapland weddings and there's nothing more beautiful or stunning than a bride in white against the backdrop of stunning arctic vistas.

Wedding transport in Lapland shifts from a swanky car to a magnificently-decorated sleigh, pulled by your own team of reindeer while the groom arrives in style either preceded by a pack of huskies or sending snow flying with his best man on a snowmobile.

As for the venue, Lapland has a plethora of choices - whatever your preference. The slender towers of the country's ancient churches make for a traditional location with breathtaking views, while the grounds of the Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park help you get closer to Lapland's environment as you swap vows. You can even get married in an ice chapel, which is rebuilt from fresh ice every year and provides an unusual and striking alternative to any venue you can hire at home.

With plenty to do for families and lovebirds, Lapland really is the perfect location for a wintery getaway. Premium tour operators fly to Lapland from most major airports in the UK and once you get there, you'll realise it was all worth it.
