Christmas in Lapland

By Viator, November 2014

No reviews, be the first!

With its snow-covered landscapes, herds of wild reindeer and lavish hotels carved entirely out of ice, Lapland is a truly magical place to spend the festive season, and as the "Official home of Santa Claus," the Christmas spirit is palpable in Lapland all year-round.

Of course, the first stop on a Christmas trip to Lapland has to be to the legendary Santa Claus Village, just north of Rovaniemi, where you can explore Santa’s workshops, pet his trusty reindeer and of course, meet Father Christmas himself. For the full experience, arrive at the village in style on a reindeer sleigh, stock up on unique gifts at the souvenir stores and send out your Christmas cards from Santa’s official post office. 

You’re guaranteed a white Christmas in Lapland, so make the most of the snow with a snowmobile ride, a Christmas family husky adventure or spend the holiday at a husky mushers camp, where you’ll get to meet the adorable husky puppies, learn how they are trained and master the art of mushing. Back in Rovaniemi, take a wander around the town’s atmospheric Christmas market, then tuck into some traditional Lappish cuisine with Christmas dinner at the Snowland Igloo Restaurant, where the dining halls are made entirely out of snow and ice.
