Wake Up Santa

3 Nights

Kittila

During your stay you will head off into the forest and go searching for him with your guide pulling you along in a snowmobile sleigh. Keep your eyes peeled as you look out for elves. As you drive near you can see moving lanterns held by the elves who sneak up to greet you. They know the secret path to Santa’s cabin and will guide your family through the lantern lit path straight to his cabin. As the children knock on his door will they wake him up from his little nap around the fire?
