Rovaniemi Santa Activities


Lapland is possibly best known for being the home of the jolly big man in red – Santa Clause (or Father Christmas), and Rovaniemi Santa activities are the best. In-fact some would say that Rovaniemi is where Santa “lives” as Rovaniemi received the status of the Official Hometown of Santa Claus in 2010.

From the chance to see the main man himself in his Lapland grotto, to a variety of other Santa activities to make any child (and adult) heart melt. Rovaniemi is a festive dream come true!

In fact, Santa Clause Village can be found on the Arctic Circle – an attraction that pulls in visitors from around the world, that can get booked up a long time in advance – so prepare your Santa adventure in Rovaniemi well in advance.

Although there are Santa Activities in Rovaniemi year-round, a month before Christmas Santa Claus declares the Christmas season open which also marks the start of the very busy season in Rovaniemi, as visitors flock to the region to experience the true magic of Christmas.

Whilst planning your trip to visit Santa Clause, you can also find a wide range of other trips and experiences to complete your Lapland adventure – check out other activities based in Rovaniemi here.
