Where can you meet Santa Claus?
There is only one Santa Claus, but he can be met in a number of different places in town.
One place he can be met is in the atmosphererich Christmas House in the Santa Claus Village.
The Christmas House also presents Christmas traditions from around the world. The Christmas House time travel showcases the history of Santa Claus and the exhibition also houses the Elf Toy Workshop.
The Christmas House Shop has great selections of Lappish handicrafts and its restaurant serves tasty snacks and meals. At the end of the tour of Christmas House, visitors have the opportunity to meet and chat with Santa Claus in person.
