Santa Claus Village and Santa Park in Rovaniemi


6 h


Rovaniemi, Lapland







An all-time bestselling combo: visit Santa Claus village and meet the jolly man in his office at the Arctic Circle and visit Santa Park.

After a 10-minute guided transfer, you will arrive at the famous Santa Claus Village just outside of Rovaniemi. First, our guide will give you a short presentation of the Village. You will learn a bit about its history, starting with the first celebrity visitor in 1950.

You will cross the official Arctic Circle

You will cross the official Arctic Circle line on your way to the entrance door to the Santa Claus office and receive your Diploma for crossing the Arctic Circle. To meet Santa in his cabin, you will have to pass along the Magic Path.

Meeting Santa Claus is a dream come true for most of the visitors of Lapland, and in high season there can be a long queue to his office, but on our excursion, we will use a pre-booked slot, which might shorten the waiting time. Finally, you will have a meeting with Santa — the biggest attraction in Lapland. Then you will visit the Official Santa Claus Post office, which receives thousands of letters from children and adults worldwide.

Here you can send a postcard to your friends and family

Here you can send a postcard to your friends and family with the official Santa Post Office stamp and order a letter from Santa to your loved ones for the following Christmas. Here we will have some free time, you can visit numerous locally made souvenir and Finnish design shops in the village or grab a bite to eat and drink. After that, you will head back to your vehicle and continue to Santa Park, just a couple of minutes away from the Village.
