Day breaks to Lapland are a way of sampling the Lappish wilderness and Arctic safaris in just one day.

Our Lapland day breaks are based in a wilderness location in the Ylläs area of Lapland and operate in groups of a maximum of 36 clients on the day, with each family having a guaranteed private audience with Santa in his cabin. Our day breaks are set in an uncommercialized, wilderness area and are for the sole use of Magic of Lapland clients, with the electricity only in the log cabin where food is served. The surrounding forest, activity areas and snow paths are lit with candles and log fires as we we aim to create an authentic atmosphere and experience of Lapland at its best.
