Around the Arctic circle, deep in snowy Lapland, the warmth and happiness await you in Santa's hut. His real home is located in the city of Rovaniemi at Santa Claus Village. There you'll find the Santa Claus Office and the Main Post Office, the House of Mrs. Claus & Santa's Reindeer, SantaPark, and Christmas House Santa & Exhibition. Over 300,000 visitors come to the village annually to meet Santa and surprise their friends with a unique Christmas postcard with the Arctic Circle postmark.

Grand Opening of the Christmas Season

Even though Santa Claus Village remains open throughout the year, one of the most cheerful days occurs in early November when the Grand Opening of the Christmas Season takes place. The heart-warming event celebrates all things Christmas. Besides, on December 23, Santa Claus departs from Rovaniemi for the world trip to meet with kids and share goodwill and caring with them.

The busy winter season continues into late March or even early April. Come and spend an amazing evening singing carols with Santa, enjoying fresh gingerbread biscuits, baked by Mrs. Clause, and watching furry reindeer having fun in the snow outdoors.
