Christmas with Santa!


Welcome to Lapland’s most enchanting holiday resort.
Christmas is close and the dear Santa is usually quite busy during this period. So if your kids want to make sure that they get their present, the best thing you can do is
to go visit him personally.
Yes… you are reading correctly. Visit him personally!
So prepare your bags, get the heaviest clothes you can find and book a flight to Ivalo in Finland. Santa Claus’ official terrestrial residence is just 30 minutes away from the airport right at the edge of the wilderness, along the road to the Artic Sea.
It’s a merestone’s throw to the Urho Kekkonen National Park, the biggest one in Finland. The Sami, also known as the Laplanders, have inhabited the region for over a century.
The surrounding environment is one of the cleanest you’ll find anywhere in the world. 
Sadly you can’t sleep in Santa’s home but there is a wide selection of Glass Igloos where you can rest for the night and have a cocktail at the beautiful Cocktail Barunder the Northern Lights.
Other unique activities are available at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort. You can go fish your own food by just making a hole into the ice or you can go aurora hunting to see one of mother natures most incredible phenomenons.
Get the chance to chat with the locals on a Reindeer or Husky Safari to connect with Sami people in an
authentic way.
