“Did you know that for hundreds of years people in Scandinavia used to believe that there were small, rarely-seen creatures living in saunas, barns, mills and under people’s houses? They used to guard our ancestors with their magic as well as tend cattle and crop fields. People paid for their services by leaving a little bit of food outside, or by warming the sauna just for them. The creatures were called elves. Today their biggest employer is a 300-year-old mystical man who is dressed in red and lives in a secret, remote place, in the northernmost Lapland.”

About

Searching for Santa is a set of playful, unforgettable Christmas experiences for the young and the young at heart, set in Northern Lights Village.

Santa’s little helper Elf will meet you and other participating families and be your guide for the day. The day starts with gingerbread baking at the
Kammi-kitchen.

After the cookie moment the Elf will take you to meet Santa’s flying reindeer. Unfortunately the reindeer only fly on the Christmas night, but you get to take a (short) ride on the reindeer-drawn sledge on snow instead.

Then it is time to go searching for Santa’s secret cabin. The Snowmobile-Elf will take your family on a heated sledge ride into the forest. If you can find the cabin, Santa will most likely welcome your family in for a private chat and even give small gifts for the children.

The activity includes:

  • Warm clothes, Elf guide
  • Gingerbread baking
  • Meeting the reindeer and a short (approx. 10 minutes) sledge ride
  • Short ride in the snowy forest on a heated sledge pulled by a snowmobile
  • Meeting Santa Claus in his cabin (approx. 15 minutes)
  • Small present

Note: Parents/Guardians are expected to work with the Northern Lights Village personnel, in order to ensure the experience is magical for the children.
