Santa Claus Village Tours

Santa Claus Village
Lapland has long proclaimed itself the Official Home of Santa Claus, and the Santa Claus Village is the ultimate destination for festive visitors, a unique theme park devoted to the red-suited fellow and located right on the Arctic Circle.

Children are sure to be swept up in the magic as they explore Santa’s workshops, where his elves are hard at work, pet Santa’s friendly reindeer and have their photo taken with the big man himself, but there’s fun for all the family too. Get in the festive spirit exploring a series of Christmas-themed exhibitions, shop for gifts at Santa’s official souvenir shop, take your photo at the border of the Arctic Circle (denoted by a white line running through the village) or take a ride on a husky sled or snowmobile. Don’t forget to send a letter home from Santa’s official post office too, hand-stamped with the special Santa Claus postmark and guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas.

Practical Info

The Santa Claus Village is located five miles (8 km) northeast of Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland and is open year-round, typically from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Entrance to the park is free, although charges apply for shows and activities.
