Christmas

Rovaniemi

As the official hometown of Santa Claus, Rovaniemi is the ultimate Christmas destination for your production. The capital of Lapland offers a number of holiday-themed locations from snowy outdoor settings to indoor Christmas venues, large and small. And as the brand image of the city is focused on Christmas, naturally the downtown streets feature Christmas trees, holiday lights and lots of holiday cheer throughout the entire winter season.

Santa Claus Village is the Christmas hub of the city, and a great location for all things holly and jolly. It is a popular tourist spot where you can meet Santa Claus, visit his official post office, go on a reindeer or husky ride, and do some Christmas shopping. The Village is also the setting of events such as the opening ceremony of the Christmas season and the start of Santa’s annual journey around the world. Another location to consider is SantaPark Arctic World. The company offers two Christmas attractions in Rovaniemi: SantaPark, an indoor Christmas theme park, and Santa Claus Secret Forest, which offers year-round Christmas experiences in a secluded forest setting.
