Newmarket puts 18 dates on sale for 2023 Lapland Santa day trips

Newmarket Holidays has put 18 dates on sale as part of an expanded range of Lapland Santa Experience Day Trips for 2023.

The trips, which depart from regional airports including Belfast, Cardiff and Norwich, include new departure points from Bristol and Luton airports.

The expansion, from 12 to 18 dates in December 2023, follows high demand for day trips to Swedish Lapland this year.

The tour operator offers the only specially chartered flights to Santa’s airport Pajala and includes return transfers to Santa’s village, a private family meeting with Father Christmas, a snowmobile ride, a reindeer sleigh ride, and husky sled ride.

Trips also include a Christmas gift for every child, thermal clothing including gloves and boots; hot berry juice; and a lunch of Swedish meatballs.

Head of trade sales Richard Forde said: “The demand for 2022 dates has been particularly strong with the majority of flights sold out by the summer.

“We’ve been encouraged by the number of enquiries from our agent partners for 2023, and we’re delighted to be launching today with even more regional flights added to the programme.”

Forde urged agents to encourage clients to book early to “secure their place” due to the popularity of the festive trips.

Prices start from £679 per adult and £599 per child.

Newmarket hosts more than 2,500 customers on Santa day trips each year and has operated special charters for Lapland trips from 13 regional airports in the last 10 years.
