Am hoping to take the DC (13&11) on a Lapland (or Norway) long weekend in February. Does anyone have any recommendations? Husky sledding is a must-have. We will have 3-4 days to play with. Thanks!

Discover the World has all sorts of Lapland and Nordic options. I would look at them but if you want half term, I would be quick!

We went to Lapland with Transun one February half term and can honestly say it was a holiday of a lifetime. We did reindeer sledding, snowmobiling, husky driving (IMO on of the highlights of the holiday) and were even lucky enough to experience the Northern Lights. I also tried cross country skiing.

One of the advantages of going in February is that you get 8 hours of daylight, and in our case bright sunlight, so I was glad that I took my sunglasses.

Thanks Gin. Transun looks like it might fit the bill!

We've been Aurora chasing in Northern Finland. You can do all the activities during the day, then go out at night looking for the lights. It's an experience of a lifetime, we saw them every night. It's a bit different from your normal Lapland holiday, but if you fancy an adventure....

Have also been with the DC using Transun on a more 'conventional' break, and would recommend them too.

Friends go skiing there every year and say it’s amazing. Plus you can do all the other activities as well.
