Lapland so expensive

Would love to take my kids to Lapland but it's around £4000 for just 3 days. Is it really worth it?

Try sourcing the flight and accommodation yourself or go out of peak session. We went for z£1600 for 3 nights. That was 6 years ago.
We stayed at Santa Claus holiday village.

No. TBF I haven't been but I really don't think I could justify that price even if I had the money. I would rather go somewhere snowy but less commercialised.

commercialised isn't the word I'd use. I went with tui to Luosto, a national park. It was stunningly gorgeous, incredible how the snow sparkles like glitter and there was a lovely lake to walk around. We'd never done anything like it and it was totally worth it. Also the salmon was out of this world!

It does not cost this much! I went a few years ago as a student with my DP.

Happy to private message you all my cost saving advice, but I don't want to say anything too identifying publicly!
