Santa Claus' Village is one of Rovaniemi's greatest attractions and there's no better way to reach it than crossing the Arctic Circle in a snowmobile! You'll also get to enjoy a reindeer sleigh ride. What are you waiting for?
Santa Claus and Reindeer Experience by Snowmobile
After being picked up from your hotel in Rovaniemi, you'll begin your excursion to a winter wonderland, where the dreams of children and adults alike will become reality...
Santa Claus Village is one of the main reasons that thousands of tourists travel to Lapland each year. The picturesque wooden houses on the outskirts of Rovaniemi, and more specifically their extraordinary residents, make this area of Finland totally magical. Of course, you can't reach such a special place any old way - no, you'll drive over to the village on a snowmobile!
As you speed over the snow, pass the mystical forests of Lapland and enjoy the spectacular snowy scenery of this region where winter lasts seven months of the year. You'll make a stop to experience an unforgettable sleigh ride pulled by Father Christmas' reindeer. Visit a farm where these Nordic animals live, and learn all about their natural habitat. What's more, you'll also get to meet the adorable husky dogs on the farm and enjoy a husky-pulled sled ride too!
Take a well-deserved break from the morning's adventures to have lunch (not included), before heading to Santa Claus Village. Here, you'll visit Santa's Post Office, where you can send off your Christmas list while watching his elves hard at work, or visit Santa Claus himself. You'll also have the opportunity to cross the Arctic Circle, which cuts through the village. Don't forget to close your eyes and make a wish!
Finally, you'll hop back on your snowmobile and return to Rovaniemi, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel.
- It's necessary to bring your valid driving license on the day of the activity if you wish to drive a snowmobile.

Pick up is included from hotels located within a 9-mile (15-kilometre) radius of Rovaniemi city centre. If your accommodation is located in the centre of Rovaniemi, you'll need to go straight to the office located at Joulumaantie 5, 96910 Rovaniemi.
The prices shown are per person. However, each snowmobile must have two people (one driver and one companion). You cannot pay an individual supplement to be able to ride the snowmobile alone.
