Skiing holidays in Lapland with Crystal Ski
Lapland in Finland is the perfect family ski holiday destination. Famous as the home of Father Christmas, this winter wonderland offers great skiing and snowboarding no matter your skill level. And Crystal Ski offer some great ski holidays there. It’s a fantastic place to learn with many English language schools and gentle slopes, but it also offers much for advanced and expert skiers with the like of Pyha and Ruka.
And the best thing? Unlike make European skiing destinations Lapland is far more relaxed and much less crowded. Meaning you can avoid the long queues and hurried pace on the slopes you sometimes find elsewhere. Instead you can have time to take in the stunning scenery, which is aided by long daylight hours in Spring and consistent snow that lasts from October to May – perfect for taking some spectacular photos.
And if you are looking for a real photo opportunity then Lapland offers a great one – the Northern Lights. Lapland is one of the best places in the world to see the Aurora Borealis appearing about 200 nights a year.
What makes Lapland so perfect for families is the chance to meet Father Christmas if you come around Christmas with Rovaniemi as his Official Hometown. Plus you can really get in the spirit with reindeer sleigh rides, (as well as husky rides!). Crystal Ski offers Santa Adventure Weeks packages offering flights, transfers, a week’s accommodation and some winter activities.
