An Unforgettable Family Christmas

Christmas is a time for families to make new memories together, yet it is usually over in the blink of an eye. This is where Finland steps in with a winter wonderland that is so enchanting that even Santa Claus calls it home.

Whether visiting the north or south, your family will always treasure their trip to Finland: Remember the time mum drove a snowmobile? What about that sleigh ride and dad falling over on ice-skates? And how can we ever forget meeting Santa…

Santa Claus Village, located on and under the Arctic Circle, offers visitors more festive fun than they can shake a candy cane at. You can study at Elf School, bake with Mrs Claus and then head underground for an unforgettable meeting with Santa. Joulukka, also the Arctic Circle, is home to the Christmas Command Centre. It’s described as one of Santa’s best kept secrets and is a bustling hive of elf activity. Be warned: Only good children are allowed in!

 

Winter

Depending on location, winter in Finland begins in November and can last up to five months, with temperatures ranging from a balmy zero to a lung-freezing minus 35.
