Your day-program will start with a comfortable road trip from Levi to Rovaniemi, which will take about 2 hours (170 km) and will be accompanied by our guide.
Our main target will be the Santa Claus Village on the Arctic Circle, 7 km from the “capital” of Lapland, Rovaniemi city.
First, our guide will give you a short presentation of the Village. You will learn a bit of its history, which started with the first celebrity visitor in 1950. You will cross the official Arctic Circle line on your way to the entrance door to the Santa Claus office and receive your personal Diploma for crossing the Arctic Circle.
To meet Santa in his office, you will have to pass along the Magic Path. Meeting Santa Claus is a dream-come-true for most of the visitors of Lapland, and in high season there can be a long queue to his office, but on our excursion, we will use a pre-booked slot, which might shorten the waiting time. Finally, you will have a meeting with Santa - the biggest attraction in Lapland, you will also visit the Official Santa Claus Post office, which receives thousands of letters from children and adults from all over the world. Here you can send a postcard to your friends and family with the official Santa Post Office stamp and order a letter from Santa to your beloved ones for the next Christmas. Here we will have some free time, you can visit numerous Finnish design and souvenir shops in the village or grab a bite to eat or drink.
After that according to client’s wish we may visit Rovaniemi city. Guide will tell a short story about it, and we will stop in the city center, where you will have some free for exploring the pedestrian walkway area, or visit Arktikum museum, Wood or Art museums or Martiini knife factory outlet.
