Christmas in Salla and Rovaniemi 2020

Christmas in Salla and Rovaniemi 2020

Christmas  far out in winter wonderland of Salla in most eastern Lapland. The Finns actually believe that Santa Claus lives on Korvatunturi neaar Salla. This is also known to be one of the most snowy locations in Finland. The temperatures can be very very low so the activities can not be too long.

Pan village  is a charming, small holiday resort with log houses each divided in 4 log apartments with 3 bedrooms, own kitchen and sauna. It is located next to the Salla Reindeer Park with a cafeteria serving you breakfast, lunch and catering in addition to the snowshoeing, reindeer and husky safaris.  Here you have a chance to enter the snowy landscape and the magical untouched forest!

After Christmas you will return to Rovaniemi, directly to Santa's Village at the Arctic Circle. You will stay one night in a big family glass igloo. If you are lucky, you will see northern lights dancing on the northern sky through the glass ceiling. In Santa's village you can find a lot of different kinds of family activities to choose from. We have include in your package a visit to the Snowman's World or Mumin Snowcastle. 

Rovaniemi  is the regional capitol of Lapland. Santa's village is the ever-growing holiday village, which at Christmas time has a high number of visitors. You will then have free time to spend visiting the attractions you like the most.  Entrance to Snowman's World is included in your package. 

Please note! Everything has been arranged for you but there is no hosting guide following the group all the time in all activities. Activities however are guided with the exception of skiing.
