It's the most wonderful time of the year! Especially in Lapland. This is a once-in-a-lifetime holiday so we've done our research to secure the best family lodges and the most authentic lapland experience for your family. If Father Christmas is still on the scene, we'll make sure your children get a private sitting with him and his reindeer. And if your children are older, there is still so much to enthrall and thrill them - dog-sledding, snowmobile safaris, tobogganing, and the Northern Lights if you're lucky.

The western coast of Thailand is an ideal spot to enjoy some festive beach-time. Phuket is the obvious choice as it offers the greatest choice of luxury hotels and still has some beautiful beaches despite the over-development of the island. We really like Krabi too. My Native's absolute favourite for its guaranteed winter sunshine and unspoilt landscapes has to be Langkawi. The pristine island boasts an impressive choice of luxurious hotels and we can advise on the best kids clubs and room configurations to suit families of all sizes. We particularly love the Andaman's Coral Nursery aimed at restoring and preserving their coral reefs - always a hit with kids of all ages.
