Teddy bear luxury holiday

Is your favourite teddy bear or
stuffed animal worn down by the daily grind and desperately in need of a

Finnish firm Teddy Tours Lapland Oy
(www.teddytourslapland.com) has
come up with one solution: holidays in northern Finland for that special
stuffed friend costing from $154-$239.

The “Standard Journey”
for teddies includes a trip around the northern town of Rovaniemi and is capped
off with a visit to Santa Claus. The stuffed animal will also receive a gift,
send a postcard to its owner and be sent home with holiday photos.

The “Luxury Journey”
includes, on top of the standard journey package, a trip to a reindeer farm
where the bear can feed Santa’s reindeer.

“This is followed by a
snowmobile safari. On safari, Teddy will try ice fishing on the frozen waterway
and savor hot chocolate by the campfire,” the firm said on its Web site,
adding the whole trip will also be recorded on videotape.

Teddy Tours Lapland will also
provide the bear, should you not want to send your own abroad or don’t own one

Currently the company only offers
trips during the winter, but it is also planning summer programme as well.

“People or living pets may not
participate on these trips,” the firm said on its web site.
