Meet the Elves

These magical characters are just one of the many components that make a Canterbury Travel holiday extra special.The Special Elves appear exclusively on each of the 3, 4 and 5 day Santa tours. No vacation to Lapland to meet Father Christmas would be the same without Santa’s Special Elves. As your expedition in Lapland begins, listen carefully to the clues provided by the Special Elves – only with their help will you find the real Santa Claus. Meet the Elves now…


Snowy Bowy

This fine young lady wearing a blue and white dress enhanced with silver trim just adores everything to do with snow! She enjoys placing bows on trees near Luosto and Pyha, building snowmen and much more. She makes lots of bows for presents and has so much fun placing decorations here and there.


Speedy Sam

You’ll soon spot Speedy Sam – he dresses in red and whizzes around Lapland ensuring things are in place on time for Santa. He’s such a reliable helper, a little impatient at times but he always gets the job done. Will Speedy Sam whisper to Santa, which of your children have been good or naughty this year?


Tricky Dicky

Did we mention what a cheeky Elf Tricky Dicky can be? We call him the joker wild because he loves to play tricks on you while you search for Santa. He may tell a fib or two to try to mislead you, but ultimately he will ensure that your time in Lapland is full of fun. You certainly won’t fail to spot him in Luosto or Pyha as he’s dressed in bright orange and yellow.


Noisy Nod

The most musical of all the Special Elves, Noisy Nod wears a green outfit which even has little bells on it. Noisy Nod likes to rest and sometimes the other elves find it hard to wake him from his slumber. However, he loves playing musical instruments and adores singing Christmas tunes – will the ringing of the bells lead you and your family to Santa?


Wendy Wood

Only in Lapland will you meet Santa’s chief toymaker. Wendy Wood makes all of the traditional toys for the children who make it on to Santa’s ‘good children’ list each year. Some of Wendy’s creations will be on display at the Elf House when you visit their home.
