Santa Claus Tours in Rovaniemi Finland 2019

This year, consider our tours for a magical White Christmas holiday in Finland.

What better way to experience Christmas than with the big cheerful bearded man in a red suit and his elves? Santa Claus resides in Finland near the Arctic Circle. Santa’s original home is on Kovatunturi Fell, where you can still experience the Christmas charm, but Rovaniemi has now become his official hometown, where he welcomes guests to his magical world.

Rovaniemi is the provincial centre of Lapland, located right on the Arctic Circle. The town lies at the confluence of the rivers Ounas and Kemi, and is a historical meeting point for trade, people and cultures of the north. With approximately 60,000 inhabitants, it is the 15th biggest town in Finland.

We offer several tours based around Rovaniemi. Our Polar Bears & Santa in Lapland tour stays at the Ranua Wildlife Park and is recommended for the families who enjoy animal experiences as well as the peace & quiet of a small village situated outside of Rovaniemi.

For a quieter, more exclusive White Christmas holiday on Rovaniemi's doorstep, we have a tour staying at the boutique hotel Beana Laponia, Christmas Wilderness Hideaway in Finland. Beana Laponia is a brand new hotel in the heart of Finnish Lapland, designed for adults only. Surrounded by a mesmerising snowy landscape, the Beana Laponia offers a wilderness hideaway with an abundance of winter activities on its doorstep.
