Santa Claus in Rovaniemi

Santa Claus in Rovaniemi

Rovaniemi  is the regional capitol of Lapland. It is located at the Arctic circle. It is also known as the home town of Santa Claus.  This is, where you will land and get your car.

Arctic Snow Hotel  has both igloos and snow hotel rooms but at the time of your visit the snow hotel is not yet open. Contruction work is going on so you can already see an almost ready hotel made out of snow there. The hotel is located northwest from Rovaniemi. Drive there will take 20 minutes. 

Your next destination Salla  is a small ski village in eastern Lapland  2h from Rovaniemi .It is not as known as the bigger ski villages and therefore less crowded. There are very high-class log apartments with 3 bedrooms in one floor in each apartment located in a beautiful landscape a few kilometers outside the ski village. What the best, next to the cabins there is Salla Reindeer Park with full catering services as well as their family-friendly  husky and reindeer programs available within walking distance.  

1. Reindeer safari 3h

Before the safari our guide will give you a driving lesson and tell you how to handle the reindeer. After the lesson you will get your own reindeer and drive it yourself behind our guide. Driving a reindeer and sleigh is quite simple and very relaxing way to move in the wintery forest.

Along the way we will have couple stops. First the female and calf reindeer needs to be fed. On a photo stop you can have photos of you and reindeer and maybe take a pic for next Christmas card. For picnic we stop in Lappish hut and enjoy sausage, hot drinks and bun.

2. Husky safari 2h 

On our Husky Safari you will feel like the hero of the wilderness. Enjoy the untouched wilderness and feel the speed of the huskies. Before the safari our guide will give you a driving lesson and tell you how to handle the sleigh. In every sleigh there is one place for passenger and driver is behind the sleigh. Passenger and driver will change places half a way so everyne gets a chance to drive.
On the safari you will get to drive a team of dogs across varying Lappish terrain. Along the way we take care of you and serve some hot drinks and sweet buns. You can also grill a sausage by an open fire. If you want to have a real break from everyday worries you should have a day trip. There will be more driving, more time to enjoy and our guide will prepare a proper lunch in the wilderness.

An adventure to Santa's secret command centre will wait for you back in Rovaniemi.

Dream of Joulukka (Note! This individual activity is the most expensive part in this package, it costs 805€ for your family but also guarantees lifelong memories. We can well take it away if not wanted.)

You will first take part in Santa’s Helpers Training and learn the most important secrets and skills required to become a Santa's Helper called an Elf.  The magical Fairytale Path will then lead you to one of the best-kept Christmas secrets of all time: Santa’s special Command Center, where the Elves are already busy preparing for Christmas. And remember to hold on to your place on the Nice list, as you might just get to meet Santa Claus himself! 

Santa's Village and Snowman World

Santa's Village is a big area full of activity providers, gift shops  and restaurants. In one house you have seen the most , maybe have tried the miniature snowmobiles and the rest of the time our clients have liked to spend in Snowman's World, where you can play in snow. The newest attraction in Santa's village is the Moomin Snow castle. However, we are not sure if it will be ready by your visit yet o therefore we have not included it in your package..
