Choosing the right insurance plan for you

Once you've booked your holiday in a winter wonderland, you will probably be thinking what about travel insurance to make sure you're completely safe in case of any worst-case scenarios. Giving you that added peace of mind is our top priority, so you have more time to plan your snowy excursions.

We like to keep things straightforward and uncomplicated. At Holiday Extras, we have a hassle-free approach to our work and we feel that the same principles should be applied to when you buy holiday insurance. We have just two policies, with four levels of cover: single-trip or annual multi-trip insurance; bronze, silver, gold and platinum.

Unless you think you'll be making multiple trips a year to Lapland, the general consensus of holidaymakers take out a single trip policy. Depending on a number of variables, the total cost of your holiday being one, you can pick the policy you feel is most suitable for your trip:

What is there to do in Lapland at Christmas?

One of the most exciting things to do in Lapland at Christmas is visit Santa's village, a purpose-built village where Santa officially gets ready for Christmas. The grounds include Santa's post office, where Santa receives letters from hopeful children, and Santa's office, where children can meet Santa himself.

Not far from there is Santa's Park, an underground amusement park where the theme is Christmas, popular with adults and children alike. The perfect way to round off a day exploring Santa's village is with a reindeer or husky ride around some of Lapland's snow-covered national parks.

For any Scrooges, there is the opportunity to see the Northern lights, and in December you have an extremely high chance of seeing this bucket list vision on cold, wintry nights. Additionally, there are also numerous ski resorts in Lapland that can cater to all your extreme sports needs, in some of the most wintry landscapes that you could wish for. When taking part in extreme sports, you must ensure that you have a good travel insurance policy in case of injury or accident.

How cold is Lapland in December?

Lapland is particularly cold in December, averaging at -6 degrees Celsius, with highs of -3 and lows of -9. The temperatures drop drastically during the evenings, and so you should take extra precautions and dress for the weather at night.

Do I need a visa to visit Lapland?

You do not need a visa to enter Lapland; a passport will suffice as long as your stay is less than 3 months.

Visiting Lapland is simple and yet could give you a bucket list experience that will remind you of snowy days, thrilling husky rides and Christmas cheer.
