Don’t just take our word for it

Every year we send families to the Real Lapland in search of Santa. Many are happy to share their experiences with us on their return to the UK.
Read the reviews of the families who have already experienced one of our magical holidays to Lapland below.

A beautiful day

I wanted to say thank you for a wonderful trip we had to Lapland this week.
Everything from start to finish went perfect. From the check-in at Dublin, to the flights, staff and service on board, everything from arrival and all the staff in Lapland was so nice, friendly and helpful. We really had a beautiful day and enjoyed it immensely. Happy Christmas to you all and speak to you in January. Warm regards.

Wonderful experience

We are just back in Dublin from the Lapland Lullaby trip that left Dublin Dec 10th. I just had to write to commend you all on the wonderful experience we had. Tom and Megan were our guides and they couldn’t have been more helpful, patient and kind. Our accommodation was immaculate and food at the Colorado was plentiful and of high quality. The special helpers were amazing, in particular speedy Sam who paid our youngest child much attention and we are extremely grateful. Wendy Wood was also very attentive and kind. Mrs Claus was amazing, and Santa was a dream come true … the trip exceeded our expectations . It really was a trip of a lifetime and one which we will highly recommend..thanks to you all, you do amazing work, the child in this 40 year old body had a blast. Keep up the great work!

Excellently organised and staff were friendly and helpful. Plenty of time to do all of the activities, lots of snow, great food, fantastic entertainment on the flight, saw the real Father Christmas, amazing journey from the airport to a beautiful winter wonderland. Thank you!

I Knew We Were In Safe Hands

The most magical experience our family has had thanks to Canterbury Travel. From the moment we arrived at Dublin Airport I knew we were in safe hands. Thanks to all the elves they were professional and courteous and of course Santa himself. We will never forget our time in Lapland.

Most Memorable Holiday Ever

What an amazing and magical trip with memories to last a lifetime. Thank you so much Canterbury for the most memorable holiday ever. It’s hard to pick a favourite bit, but a bedtime story from Mrs Claus is definitely up there and we all loved the Husky rides. The staff were all amazing and so helpful and friendly and our rep Marcus couldn’t have been more helpful and great with the Children.

You Have Made This Family Very Happy

We did it! Thank you so much Canterbury Travel for the most magical holiday ever! The staff, on the planes and in the hotel, were outstanding but, the person that made the trip for us was Perry, tour guide extraordinaire, on coach C. The special elves and all the others were amazing too. Please pass on our thanks to all involved. You have made this family very happy. Xxx

Best Xmas Ever

We have just returned home from the most magical time in Luosto, it was the best Xmas ever and we would like to thank everyone at Canterbury travel for helping to make it so special.

Truly Professional

We returned on the 23 December 2015, from a 4 day Magical Interlude tour with Canterbury Travel. We found it an absolutely fantastic experience. Our son, who is 7, was captivated from the moment we arrived at LGW and his captivation has not stopped yet. The whole adventure was magical and perfect. All who work for Canterbury Travel, both in England and Finland, should be proud of what they do, they are truly professional, and caring towards the children. This company cannot be faulted and we shall recommend them to all parents, who wish to help their children meet Santa and his fantastic helpers.

Amazing Memories

We had a brilliant day in Enontekio on Saturday 19th December. My sons reaction was brilliant when we surprised him at the airport with our real plans for the day, he thought we were shopping all day haha. Thank you Canterbury Travel for another bunch of amazing memories and thank you to the Titan Airways crew who were all lovely. We will see you again in a few years when my little girl is older x

Full of Christmas Spirit

Just left Pyhä on our Magical Lapland 4 day search for Santa. What an amazing trip! Husky Rides, Snowmobile safari, meeting Santas special Elves have left us full of Christmas spirit! Thank you to our amazing tour guide Gavin and everyone on coach V for making it so memorable!
Lynda Lawrence

Loved It

We spent the day in Enontekio on Saturday and loved, loved, loved it. No long queues, friendly & helpful staff, excellent crew on the flight, a clean restaurant and beautiful resort. The lantern lit walk through the woods to see Santa was magical. It was tiring because of the flights but that can’t be helped. Highly recommend booking with Canterbury. X
Vicky Martin

Totally Awesome

Just returned from a magical, totally awesome four days in Lousto, Lapland, thank you so much to Canterbury Travel for making this such an amazing experience, especially to Hannah and all on Coach F, even Trickey Dickey for hitching a lift and making the Elf song a truly special memory.

Dreams Come True

I can’t speak for the kids but 37 year old mummy has hyped this up in her head for literally years. Thank you Canterbury Travel for making all our dreams come true. We really did get our holiday of a lifetime.
Vicki Durkin

Absolutely Perfect

My Family & I came home Friday (4th Dec) from our 5 day trip in search for Santa & I just wanted to say what an amazing time we had! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left it was absolutely perfect! I came to Lapland as a child with Canterbury Travels 21 years ago & it was one of my favourite childhood memories but it didn’t even come close to seeing my children there! Their little faces & the excitement they felt is something we will never forget! I would like to say a huge thank you to all the amazing Elves, Santa & Mrs Clause… By the second day everyone knew our children’s names & made them feel so special & safe to enjoy their time there… The whole experience was so well organised & we were so impressed with everything we did & saw. Thanks to all your hard work our children’s dreams came true & our hearts & heads are bursting with love & memories that we will have to cherish forever!!
