Just back from Lapland with First Choice, stayed in Rovaniemi, had a lovely time and the place is truly magical if you love snow and the festive feeling, leave grumbles behind and enter into the spirit! We went as a couple, really no kids needed if you're still young at heart! We had no problems with the food at all and ate in some nice places. The first day at the Winter Wonderland was enjoyable and there was time to try everything. Get to lunch early is my advice, as we did; to avoid queuing, then you can get back to the fun! The Saturday trips were a little disappointing with more time needed at Santa Village, less at Santa Park, when we left Santa Park though it started snowing which was truly magical. Be aware that if you book on the extra excursions they are shorter than you think and also in the dark which was not pointed out when we booked before going away. This we found took the excitement away a little but again it was still a great experience. We did the snow Mobiles & Husky Trail Blazer, the husky ride was very short and be aware that you don't actually get to meet the husky pups or see the dogs other than attached to the sleighs. We found, by chance, the husky park when we went to Santa Village, it is just by the entrance and this is well worth a visit to meet the pups. Shame they don't make people aware this is here. The Gala night was enjoyable, however went on a bit simply for the fact everyone had to meet a special person. There was a nice surprise in the middle though and again the fact it snowed was great too! Our Elf Wooly Mittens was excellent and always in good festive cheer
Overall we really enjoyed it and made the most of our time, defiantly worth the experience but would not go on an arranged holiday again, prefer to do our own choice of things at our own pace.
