Santa Claus Village

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Hi Travel Buddies,

Do you know the place where you can meet Santa Claus and cross the magical Artic Circle every day?  Yes, you can do this at Santa Claus Village at Lapland, Finland!

The Santa Claus Village is located 8 km north of Rovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland.

We can see the Artic Circle (called Napapiiri in Finlandas a visible line on the world map.  The coolest part we read is that the Artic Circle marker is conveniently painted on the roadside and built right on top of the Santa Claus Village.  The Northern Lights, or aurora borealis are especially visible to observers standing at or above the Artic Circle and striking during dark winter times.

You can arrange to send a postcard from Santa Claus Post Office during Christmas time and will bear an official Santa stamp.  You can also receive a Christmas card from Santa for €6.

Santa Park is a Christmas-theme amusement park, featuring all Christmas related stuff, magic sledge ride, an army of elves baking gingerbread, christmas carousel and of course Santa Claus himself!

About Lapland

Lapland is the coldest part of Finland, expecting minus 30°C or even lower during winter.  So when is the best time to visit?  June is muddy and mosquitoes are real nuisance in July.  August is great and falls colours set in September.  While thick snow during Oct to May, December draws crowds to Santa Claus, real reindeer and skiing activities.

Merry Christmas!  Yo ho ho-ho! 😀

Hi Travel Buddies,

We are instantly attracted to the tag line “Win a holiday to Finland and more!”
Finland, one of the 5 Scandinavian countries, has always been one of our dream destination to visit one day.  The tag line strikes a chord in our heart right away especially in this festive season.  We started to draw images of beautiful white christmas in our mind and cannot help singing Santa Claus is coming to town!

Simply spend $50 at HabourFront Centre and you will stand a chance to win the top price, 4D3N family trip to Lapland, Finland for 3 persons (2 adults/1 child).
Do you know Finnish Lapland is the home of Santa Claus? 😛
