Santa`s location is in Santa Park, which is an amusement park near Rovaniemi in the Lapland region of Finland. We had a wonderful adventure enjoying a Elf Show, Santa's Workshop, Gingerbread Kitchen, magical Sleigh Ride, Elf School, Elf Workshop, Ice Sculptures, Santa`s Post Office and Christmas music. And I had to admit: the beautiful Ice Queens melted my heart.

The park is designed to emulate the cavern residence of Santa Claus on the Arctic circle. Popular culture often depicts Santa Claus or joulupukki in Finnish, coming from Lapland. Therefore, tourists come every year to Rovaniemi to meet Santa Claus. Website: www.santapark.com
