SantaClausTrips (Visit Santa this Christmas in Lapland! Imagine spending a short break beyond the Artic Circle, in a region of such beauty that the scenery, the magical atmosphere and, of course, the cold, cold air combine to take your breath away. This is Lapland, the spellbound, unspoilt region in the north of Finland, so beautiful that Santa Claus chose it as home. And if you visit Lapland in the magical weeks leading up to Christmas, there is the added anticipation that at any moment you may bump into the grand old man himself. Above all, it is a land where you can watch the sparkle in children's wide open eyes as they set out in search of the real Santa Claus. It's magic - and with you'll come to believe it.):
