This week on Today, Daithí and Maura will be giving away a fairytale Christmas experience that only dreams are made of!
On December 17th, you and your family could be on the way to Lapland, to experience the magic of Christmas and to meet the man himself, Santa Claus, just days before he sets off on his all-important journey this Christmas Eve!
This fully-inclusive 2-day trip, for 2 adults and 2 children, begins in the beautiful resort of Pyha in Finland. After settling into your accommodation and receiving your thermal garments and boots, you will join Santa's Elves to discover Lapland with fun activities in the snow like Snowmobiling and Tobogganing. Then, the search to find Santa begins when his mighty huskies and reindeer arrive to take you on a Sleigh Ride to his special Lappish home, where you will have a private family meeting with the man himself!
But it doesn't end there! We'll also give you €10,000 in cash to make sure that this is one Christmas you will remember forever.
This magical adventure comes courtesy of Canterbury Travel, the Irish family-owned premier Lapland tour operator. For over 40 years, Canterbury Travel has specialised in offering fully inclusive short breaks and day trips to Lapland. For further information visit www.canterbury-tales.com
That's all for one lucky winner this week, and all you have to do for your chance to win is answer this question (and make sure that you are by the phone next Monday 9th December, when Daithí and Maura will be calling the lucky winner live on the show!).
