A couple of days ago two members of The PHA Group were lucky enough to go on a once in a lifetime day trip with Transun to Lapland to meet the real Santa Claus!
Not knowing what to expect Rob from the digital team and Laura from the business team packed lots of layers, warm gloves and their all-important cameras.
As their plane touched down in Enontekio in Finnish Lapland they were greeted by magical scenes of snow. Excited for what was to come, they boarded a coach for a short ride to where they would be fitted out with their snowsuits and boots which kept them warm despite the minus eleven temperatures.
Once they were suited and booted they ventured out into the snow and wasted no time getting stuck into the many activities that Transun offer, including sledging, reindeer sleigh ride, husky adventure, snowmobiling across a frozen lake and the all-important meeting with the big man himself, Santa.
When the time came for their individual meeting with Santa, despite being in their twenties they couldn’t contain their excitement and felt like big kids all over again.
They were taken in a snowmobile sleigh out into the Arctic Wilderness where Santa lives in a secret wood cabin. After toasting marshmallows with Santa’s elves on an outdoor fire, they were invited inside where they met Santa and told him all they wanted for Christmas.
After plenty of hugs and photos with Santa it was time for them to leave and head back to London. They had a magical day and can’t wait to see Santa again on Christmas Eve!
