It’s a Digital Christmas 2020 with the new Santa’s Lapland video call experience

Taking your children to meet Santa may not be possible this year due to lockdown restrictions.

So holiday company Santa’s Lapland is bringing Father Christmas into children’s homes using the magic of video calls.

It will give families a taste of the festive excitement that comes from meeting Santa.

The new scheme follows the announcement that the company has had to suspend their December 2020 trips to Lapland.

The 10-minute video call will prove its Lapland credentials, as an Elf leads the family through the snow and gets up-close with a reindeer, before going live to Santa’s cabin for a personalised meeting with Santa himself.

Paul Carter, CEO of Santa’s Lapland, said: “With restrictions increasing throughout the UK, many of us have been wondering how we will keep the magic of Christmas 2020 alive.

“We intend to help make it one to remember, by offering families the chance to meet Santa from the comfort and safety of their own home.

“While no Christmas can compare to the sheer excitement of travelling to Lapland to visit Santa in his snowy cabin, where the reindeer are real and the Northern Lights dance across the night sky, families will now still be able to enjoy a taste of the real Lapland magic this Christmas.”

The company cancelled its December 2020 trips to visit Santa in Lapland following concerns that increasing COVID-19 safety measures and travel restrictions would take too much away from the magic of the experience.

Many customers have postponed their trip to next year and others have taken refunds.

Santa’s Lapland three and four-night trips for 2021 are available to reserve now with departures from November 26 to December 24 from 13 regional airports.

The breaks include snow fun, husky sledding and reindeer sleigh rides, a search for Santa and other activities.
