The Best of Lapland According to Santa

In an exclusive interview, the one and only Santa Claus reveals why Finnish Lapland is and will always be the best place for his headquarters.

The remote wilderness of Korvatunturi fell might not be the ideal place for running a worldwide gift delivery service, but for Santa, natural beauty is more important than logistics. The natural world and its diversity make Lapland unique. Some argue there are up to eight seasons in Lapland, and the constantly changing landscape creates astonishing contrasts.

– It might be difficult for some to fathom, but the temperature difference between winter and summer can be as much as 80 °C here, Santa points out.


In Lapland, swapping the hustle and bustle of ski resorts and cities to the peace and quiet of the wilderness takes mere minutes.
