My self, ,my partner and our 2 eldest sons aged 7 and 4 visited the snow villiage with first choice on the 10th of dec 2011 for the serch for santa day trip and it was magicial. From the minute we got on the plane to the the time we arrived home it was brilliant. We left stanstead airport and all the children were given christmas hats and a bumper pack with lots of colouring in to do. We arrived at kittila and was shown to a hanger by the elves to get changed in to our snow suits and then taken on a coach to the snow villiage (which is only a short drive away). On the coach all the children were given there very own snow villiage passes and we were told lots of facts about father christmas and the snow villiage its self. Well what can i say, the snow villiage was truely beautiful and magical. Crisp whits snow covered everything and as day light fades very early there was oil burners hidden in the snow which looked stunning. We went on husky rides, reindeer rides, the children rode snow mobiles and they got to see the real father christmas in his very own little grotto. We never had to wait to long for any of the rides and managed to go on everything. It is cold but not as cold as you would think and the excitment of it all soon takes away the feeling of being cold. The ice bar is brilliant with its own little ice rink, which is sooo slippery that you can skate in your boots. The meal in the resterant was included in the price and the food catered for everyone. The berry juice, hot chocolates and biscuits were also included in the price so all you paid for was alcohol in the ice bar and the gift shop is only small with a few things for sale. It was nice to take the children somewhere that wasn't about taking/making as much money as possible from parents. We spent for the whole day from leaving stanstead to arriving back £100 for 4 of us and £35 of that was spent at the airport before we left england. This really is an amazing day trip to take children, although i would say dont take children under 3 as it is a long day and pushing a buggy in 2 foot of snow is not easy as i found out when watching a lady for about 15 minutes trying to get away from the coach. My children has a fantasic day and they dont stop talking about their trip "to see the real father christmas". I would 100 % recommend this to everyone i know. 5 *
