Lapland – Film Inspiration Frozen

Do You Want To Build a Snowman?:
OK so Frozen is based in Norway, but we couldn’t miss Norway’s neighbour Lapland off this list! Fly up to the Arctic Circle and enter a magical winter wonderland, thick with snow. Enjoy the thrill of riding on a snowmobile across open landscapes, walk through the snow-capped woods on snowshoes, meet the indigenous Sami people and their reindeers, and have a go at cross-country skiing.

South America – Film Inspiration: Rio and Up!

Brazil Waterfalls, Rivers and Rainforests:
Embark on a private family adventure to Rio de Janeiro where you will cycle along the beaches, whizz up the Sugar Loaf in a cable car and climb Corcovado Mountain in an open-topped jeep. You’ll see the Iguazú Falls which crashes over cliffs through the tropical jungle. Exploring close up by boat and on foot: you’ll get wet! Look out for Rio stars Blu, Jewel and Nigel amongst the wildlife!
