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?
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. Once you reach the village, you'll enter Santa's Post Office, where you can deliver your own letter to Father Christmas himself while watching his elves hard at work. 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!
Take a well-deserved break from the morning's adventures to enjoy a typical buffet lunch, and feast on local Lapland dishes, including reindeer meat and fish soup.
With recharged batteries, you'll continue your village excursion with an unforgettable sleigh ride pulled by Father Christmas' reindeers. Visit a farm where these Nordic animals live, and learn all about their natural habitat.
Finally, you'll hop back on your snowmobile and return to Rovaniemi, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel.
