Get in the Christmas spirit
In Lapland, it is not very hard to get in the Christmas spirit. Everything is covered in Snow, garlands sparkle everywhere and behind each window, you can see beautiful ornaments decorating typical houses. What we recommend is to take a walk around Rovaniemi city Centre and stop to admire the ice Christmas Crib. You might even be lucky enough to attend a performance of Santa’s helpers that come to the city to sing Christmas carols.
Another great thing to do is to make the most of the city centre by going to the cinema to watch a Christmas movie. Bring a blanket and a hot chocolate for an extra cozy moment!
Christmas Eve in Santa’s village
Paying a visit to Santa in his village on the 24th is a great idea! Approaching Christmas, the atmosphere in his village gets even more special and you will enjoy seeing children playing in the snow and people gathered around a nice fire camp.
If you have not done it yet, it is also a great moment to write some Christmas cards to your loved ones and send it from Santa’s official post office. You will spend a nice moment writing them and your friends and family will definitely appreciate receiving a letter from Lapland!
To top off the day, why don’t you give reindeer sleigh ride a try? Even the shortest tour will make this day unforgettable. After that, go and say hello to Santa Claus in his workshop, he will be happy to have a little chat with you before his big night!
