Searching for Santa is a set of playful, unforgettable Christmas experiences and Lapland adventures for the young and the young at heart.
Santa’s little helper Elf will meet you and other participating families and be your guide for the day, which 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 Christmas night, but you get to take a ride on the reindeer-drawn sledge in the pristine white snow instead.
Then it is time to go searching for Santa’s secret cabin. The Snowmobile-Elf will take your family on a heated sled 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.
Your own Elf will be accompany you on your guided tour
