Santa Claus Hotel is a modern and comfortable hotel in the heart of Rovaniemi. It has 170 rooms which are a great place to relax after a day in the snow.

*Please note that Santa Village is open all year, however, some facilities and activities are only available during certain periods, mostly depending on snow conditions. The companies at Santa Claus Village & the excursion companies cannot guarantee when permanent snow cover will come or how long the snowy winter lasts. It’s all up to nature.

Lapland

Holidays in Lapland

Lapland is a region in Northern Finland that is home to one of the most famous people in the world, Santa Claus. Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland, is Santa Claus’ official hometown and is covered in permanent snow from November to April.

Santa Claus can be found every day at Santa Claus Village, a specially-made village where he greets children and families from around the world. Santa Claus Village is open year-round and is completely free to visit! At Santa's Village, you can:

  • Have a private meeting with Santa Claus
  • Learn about Christmas traditions from around the world at the Christmas Exhibition
  • See where all the letters to Santa arrive in Santa’s Official Post Office
  • Cross the Arctic Circle
  • Visit the Husky or Reindeer Farms (*additional cost)
  • Visit Snowman World (*additional cost)

Holidays to Lapland are something special whether you’re going with kids or it’s a bucket list item you want to tick off. The snow, lights, music and festive cheer make it impossible to not get into the Christmas spirit. We recommend visiting Lapland between November and February when it’s at its most magical.

Click&Go holidays to Lapland include return flights from Dublin and central 3* and 4* accommodation in Rovaniemi.
