Fantasy Flight Itinerary

We are delighted to announce that the 2018 Fantasy Flight will take place on Wednesday 19th December on the Thomas Cook 220 seated Airbus


On our trips to Lapland EVERYTHING is included – neither the kids nor the parents need to put their hands in their pockets – the flights, the presents, the rides, the food (en route and in the resort) are all part of our gift to them. The aircraft and the resort are for our exclusive use for the entire day….and don’t worry, full medical back up is with us all the way, both in the air and the resort.

(Please note….the hospitals are  responsible for the selection of children who travel on this flight. The age range is 4 to 10 years old.)


Just look what’s included…

  • Reindeer Rides
  • Husky Dog Rides
  • Sledging
  • Ice Gallery
  • Angry birds activity area
  • Mrs Clause Gingerbread Bakery
  • Santa’s Post Office
  • Undercrossing the Arctic Circle
  • Elf school
  • Elf Workshop
  • Magic Sleigh Ride
  • Private Meeting with Santa Claus
  • Gifts For All
  • …a magical time!

After bidding farewell to Santa and finishing all of the outdoor ‘Snow Fun’ activities it’s time for the Elves to transfer us back to the Arctic Airport…It would seem like this trip of a lifetime is over but there is MORE in store as we have a Christmas party on the way home, with plenty of entertainment, games, gifts, souvenirs, spot prizes and presents from Santa.

The tireless work of the Trust is extraordinary and it provides many wonder full memories for so many children

Useful Tips for the Groups Travelling

Lapland is two hours ahead. The flight is 3 hours. The currency is Euro. The area we are going to is Rovenemi, north Finland. We have full medical back up in the air and in the resort. We will visit the famous – Indoor Santapark. The Trust provide hot meals onboard the aircraft and buffet style lunch in the resort. There are warm changing facilities in the resort. There is a small souvenir shop in the resort, however the NICLT provide souvenirs, gifts & toys for the children. There is very little day light.


The NICLT supply the ski gear, hats, gloves, scarves, socks and snow boots. Comfortable warm clothing is advisable to travel in.

Video & Camera equipment

As it gets very cold in Lapland this can drain the batteries so it is best to keep equipment in the thermal clothing we supply, likewise with mobile phones. All liquids must be no more than 100ml. Lip balm is useful! Electric Supply – Battery charging – This can be done in the log cabin where lunch is served – two pin plug adaptors will be required. There will be an ambulance in the resort and the hospital in the area are aware of our arrival and the nature of the flight. This is a fully escorted trip so there will be members from the Trust on hand at ALL times.
