December is arguably the region's most celebrated month. Officially signalling the start of the winter season, whether you're visiting for the Christmas celebrations or simply the boundless outdoor activities, adventurous days paired with cosy evenings certainly make up for the fewer daylight hours of winter.
Santa in Lapland
What's more, with the most magical time of the year fast-approaching, meeting Santa in his Lapland home is the ultimate way to celebrate. Take the family on a memorable Santa break in the heart of Lapland and experience everything from cookie baking to the thrill of a husky safari, and even meeting Santa himself in his log-cabin home.
Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel – Norwegian Arctic
This is also the time of year when most of the region's ice and snow hotels open their doors. Each winter, new versions of these incredible hotels are built entirely from ice, with temperatures now low enough to sustain the structure. The winter solstice also marks the longest night of the year, making it an ideal time to spot the Northern Lights, meaning a great opportunity for a fun-filled break for all the family. Elsewhere, renowned Christmas markets in the likes of Copenhagen and Stockholm are the perfect reason to opt for an urban adventure.
