Shannon to Lapland Service Announced

Shannon to Lapland Service Announced

“This has to be one of the most amazing trips ever – a visit to Lapland to see the big man himself, Santa! This is a trip of a lifetime that will live long in the memory, such a magical experience,” said Declan Power, Head of Aviation Development at Shannon Airport on the announcement that Sunway is set to operate a Lapland service to Santa’s home on 13th December, all of 2,500 miles away in the Arctic Circle.

‘Santa’s Sleepover’ will see passengers, both young and young at heart, enjoy a trip to the fairy-tale world of snow covered forests and the opportunity to meet Santa himself. Lapland has the last remaining expanse of wilderness in northern Europe, including the coastline, forests, mountains and unspoilt rivers. In winter this becomes a wonderland of snow where privileged visitors get to enjoy the fun of snowmobile adventures, toboggans and sleigh rides.

Declan Power said: “A flight to Lapland is the only service that engenders this much excitement. We are delighted to have it. We have had our Santa flights for the past three years here and they have been a magnificent treat. But with this once-off service, we are delighted that passengers from Shannon will have the option of going to Lapland.

“It will be a special trip and there will be a great buzz on departure day and, no doubt, a thousand stories told on return and a thousand memories made, so book early to avoid disappointment as places book up fast!”

Prices for the trip are €899 per adult and €799 per child and include flights, 20kg bag, accommodation, food, arctic gear and all activities, which include a snow-mobile adventure, reindeer sleigh ride through the snowy forest, husky dog ride, gingerbread decorating, snow and ice fun activities, meeting with Santa, a trip to Santa’s post office and village, and Arctic clothing.
