ABOUT THIS TOUR

For those who always wanted to meet Santa Claus, we have good news! Now you can come to Lapland Christmas village, the official town of Santa Claus and meet the man himself. Have a little chat with Santa, take photos and tell him your Christmas' wishes. Located in the beautiful town of Rovaniemi in Lapland, this official Santa Village is open all year round. That means that with us you can have a unique Christmas experience any time of the year.

This is a perfect family excursion your kids will absolutely love. In Santa Claus holiday village you can ride a snowmobile, go on a husky or a reindeer ride, and shop for gifts. We will also take you to the Santa's House of Snowmobiles, where you can see the permanent exhibition of most popular snowmobiles of Lapland.

When it comes to getting there, forget about the sleigh ride, or a bus, as we will pick you up in a cozy minivan and take you to magical Santa Claus village of Rovaniemi. The ride takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Once we get there our friendly guide will tell you more about the village and share with you the best things to do in Lapland. What sets us apart is that we limit our groups to 8 persons only. We insist on small private groups so we could help you have an intimate authentic experience with friends and family.

Send your friends original cards from Santa's post office using a special Arctic Circle postmark not available anywhere else in the world. With a help of Santa's elves write your friends best wishes and share the Lapland holiday cheer any time of the year. Santa's elves work with Finland's national postal service, so you can be sure that your friends will receive the postcards.

On top of that, we will take you to a special ceremony of the Arctic Circle crossing. The Arctic Circle runs through Rovaniemi and you can cross it right there in Santa’s Village. The legend says that Arctic Circle is a stress-free zone and that the northern you go the happier you become. The fun part is getting the certificate of the crossing.

Santa Claus Village and private meeting with Santa
   |   


This was a lovely morning, my beautiful guide was very knowledgable and gave me a wonderful tour, using my camera to take photos of me crossing the Artic Circle and many many more super photos. She took me to the shops, never pressuring me to buy but showing me everything that was on offer, then she took me to the post office and encouraged me to write post cards and have them mailed back so that they had the official stamp. The highlight was my few minutes with Santa. When asked she told me what to expect so I was prepared and it made for a memorable video. Thank you very very much.
PS She gave me my official certificate for crossing the Artic Circle

Four friends trip!

I would recommend this tour as it will save you a bit of time (rather than doing it DIY, one by one). It is do-able the three activities in one day in santa village becauseeverything is walking distance in there, but if you want to know more infos and trivias, and save time on searching the places where to do activities, and queuing to buy the tickets then i would recommend you to book this one. It includes everything and the guide will answet yout questions. Thanks to our guide Alex, we manage to do everything we want to do in 1 day. We didnt have to line to buy tickets in that cold weather. The trivias and his shop recommendations are interesting and useful!

Fantastic

We had a brilliant day out with a very informative guide. Collected from our apartment and taken to feed the reindeer, we had a sleigh ride followed by a hot drink. Moved on to visit the Huskies,they were wonderful to see, the ride was brilliant. Met Santa and had lots of information throughout from our guide :)

LOVED IT!

The tour itself was soo worth it. We got to ride in a husky carriage (I advise 5km distance), had a tour in the husky farm, got to pet beautiful huskies, sent letters from Santa’s Post Office, see Santa himself, rode in a reindeer carriage, and had an adventure on snowmobile, and entered the ARCTIC!!! Everything from 10:30 till 16:00. I wish we could spend more time in Santa’s Village but everything closed at 17:00.
Alex was a very very helpful and polite person. He was kind enough to arrange additional things that we wanted to add to the tour today! He was very understanding too. Also, he told us about the live video-cam that was installed right where you enter Arctic Circle. He helped us bu taking a lot of our pictures too!!

Good services

In March 2018 I traveled with friends in Finland. The purpose of the trip was to see the beauty and fabulous places. They stopped in Rovaniemi, the capital of the province of Lapland.

To fully experience the atmosphere of winter, fairy tales and local beauties used the services of the agency Nordic Adventures. It was the right choice.

All tours were guided by guide Alex. It can be seen that the guy understands what he does. He reacted to all our questions and requests promptly and did his best to make his excursions so pleasant that it was just WOW.

Although, it can not be called excursions - it was really ADVENTURE!

Elegant and beautiful nature. We were in national parks, but at our request we went to the wild nature, Alex worked 100%.

In the village of Santa Claus, even I felt like a child in a fairy tale and began to believe in a miracle again) A wonderful feeling.

Also took the tour "Best of Lapland". A trip to Finnish saunas, evenings with northern lights and an abundance of delicious food. Super!

I can say that the agency Nordic Adventures - this is an agency that from a simple vacation can make a fairy tale! A professional guide who knows everything about Lapland and even more, adapts to the wishes of the client. Huge routes, just those in which you can feel all the beauty and color of Lapland.

And of course, I will recommend to all my friends Alex and Nordic Adventure!! Thank you!
