The participants are fetched from hotel in Kemi at 9:00. We drive to Arctic Circle that is situated some 120 km north from Kemi.
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.
In the Christmas House, the unique and nostalgic Christmas Exhibition presents a display of Christmas habits and traditions in different parts of the world. Historical Christmas films and rare Christmas decorations get you in the Christmas Spirit and take you on a journey through childhood memories from Lapland, Finland, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, Iceland, Japan, France, Austria, Spain, Poland and USA. Entrance fee to Christmas House’s exhibition is not included.
During midwinter or the twilight period, light is provided by the moon and stars in addition to the magical Northern Lights and clean, bright cover of glistening snow. The Arctic Circle is also known as the border of hastiness, where regular time changes into the magic time of elves and reindeer.

Affordable giftware for international shoppers and top Finnish design products can be found from dozens of different giftware boutiques.
