Santa Experience Options with The Friendly Moose

We have 2 different Santa experiences to choose from for our younger guests. 

Option 1:  Calm and Quiet away from the crowds, this is an intimate and accessible Santa visit exclusive for our guests.

We drive into the Arctic Circle where we meet Santa in his traditional Lappish Kota (Teepee)
There is a welcome warming drink for everyone and the children spend some time with Santa and receive a Christmas gift. Santa will then introduce everyone to his Reindeer and Moose and there will be a Reindeer-pulled sleigh ride.

A traditional meal of a local Meat/Salmon dish and potatoes will be served and an entertaining talk will be given on Sami culture and traditions. The visit is expected to last between 2-3 hours and there are accessible washroom facilities.

Option 2: We can incorporate a visit to see Santa and his Elves in his amazing and beautifully decorated underground cavern in Rovaniemi. From November through till January, maybe a chance to say thank you to Santa in person.

Here you can take part in the Elf School, deccorate and eat gingerbread in Mrs Gingerbread’s kitchen, feel the crispy cold in the Ice Princess’ frozen gallery of Ice sculptures, ride on the Magic Train, Make a Christmas card for Santa, visit the Santa Post Office, enjoy the Elves Stage Show, Pass Under the Arctic Circle  and, of course, meet Santa! 

A super and action-packed exciting experience for the children which, as you would expect,  can be a bit noisy and busy at times. Fully accessible and wheelchair friendly.
