What you dreamed when child you will see here. Christmas decorations, music, all around in white. Souvenirs shops (over rated prices like whole Lapland), photo with Santa, restaurants, bars and plenty winter activities. A must see once in life!

Perfect for a family, approx. 3 hours duration. Meet Santa, buy the photos, eat a reindeer burger and a traditional lappish cheese, drink vodka in the ice bar, buy arctic circle certificate

Don’t see Santa in a hotel room, so many people are disappointed, see him in the village or go on a search for him it’s much more magical.
