DESTINATIONS WINTER | SCANDINAVIA


3 GET ACTIVE IN NORWAY


If your clients like the idea of staying in a secluded fishing cabin with nothing but the sound of rustling leaves and rippling waters to wake up to in the morning, suggest the Malangen Resort in Norway, where quaint fjordside cabins and hotel rooms overlook a mirror-flat stretch of water, easily accessible via a 90-minute transfer from Tromso. There’s plenty to be getting on with for those after adventure, from fat biking through the wilderness to snowshoeing through the forest, cross-country skiing over the hills to indigenous storytelling with Samis, while dogsledding safaris teach guests how


to mush huskies as they glide through scenes that belong on a Christmas card. Book it: Best Served Scandinavia has a four-day trip here starting from £1,085 including return flights to Tromso, transfers, three nights’ half-board and a husky sledding trip. best-served.co.uk


SEE SANTA IN LAPLAND


For clients travelling with kids in tow, few experiences are quite as magical as seeing Father Christmas in his legendary habitat, reindeer plodding gently over mounds of glittering snow. For a standout package suggest the aurora break in Finland from Santa’s Lapland, which throws in everything from snowmobiling to ice fishing, tobogganing to tandem skiing across four Santa-themed days. Highlights include a visit to an igloo for festive games, a trip to a reindeer farm for a jingling sleigh ride, and a visit to see Santa in a secluded log cabin, reached by an elf-guided snowmobile adventure through the remote


Saariselka forest. Book it: A three-day Santa’s Aurora break costs from £4,326 for a family of four including flights, transfers, thermal clothing, activities and half-board accommodation, departing December 7. santaslapland.com

SLEEP IN AN ICE PALACE


Fancy sleeping in a room made entirely of ice, with an ice-block bed covered in reindeer skin and with the temperature resting at a nose-tingling -5C? It might sound a little bizarre – and it is – but the iconic Icehotel manages to pull it off, and to spectacular effect. Scandinavia Only pairs it with two nights at Sweden’s second-quirkiest spot, the Treehotel, where futuristic abodes designed like UFOs, birds’ nests and other whacky creations hover high in the pines, and night photography workshops, hiking trips, culinary tours and Sami experiences offer an alternative take


on this diverse, nature-loving country. Book it: Scandinavia Only’s Treehotel and Icehotel trip costs from £2,435 in February. scandinaviaonly.co.uk
