Our Trip to Arctic Circle and Santa Claus village brings you to the Arctic Circle, where you get the Arctic Circle crossing certificate, meet Santa Claus himself, meet the reindeer herders and enjoy a delicious lunch. Also visit in Santa’s house of snowmobiles and sled dog park is included if they are open.

The Arctic Circle is a line visible on the map, north of which the sun can be seen above the horizon even at midnight during the summertime. Contrastingly, during the winter the sun stays below the horizon for a certain time. As a unique memory everybody gets the official Arctic Circle crossing certificate. It is available in many languages.

The Santa Claus Village is a unique meeting place where hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world come to meet Santa Claus on every day of the year. A place where the fairytale becomes true. Did you know that humans can only see elves when the elves want to be seen?

Welcome to the colourful Christmas world of beautiful cards, stamps and unique gifts. Sit by the fireplace and write to your friends all over the world. The cheerful Postal Elves will post your greetings for you, whether it’s Christmas or the middle of summer.

Make friends and relatives happy by ordering a Santa Claus Letter, which will be sent by Santa Claus before Christmas. All post will be stamped by hand using the special postmark of the Santa Claus Post Office.

P.S. The secret behind the red post box; all letters put through here will be sent for Christmas.

The Arctic Circle is also known as the border of hastiness, where regular time changes into the magic time of elves and reindeer.

The stores of the Santa Claus Village are open every day. The range of products includes local handicrafts from artisans that have been working for decades in Rovaniemi. Affordable giftware for international shoppers and top Finnish design products can be found from dozens of different giftware boutiques.

The postal service of the Santa Claus Main Post Office will send items for you when you want them to be sent, perhaps for Christmas?

Meet the reindeer herders and have a little sleigh ride with Santa’s reindeer. Make nice pictures with reindeer and find out if and when they can fly!

Lunch and visits are included. Additional safaris and some spots are available occasionally! With a local guide you don’t miss any spot or service!
