Searching For Santa

What You'll Do

Come and meet Santa in his secret cabin, say hello to his elves and reindeer and try your hands at making delicious gingerbread.

Searching for Santa is a set of playful, unforgettable Christmas experiences 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

Your Local Host:


I was born and raised in Finland and for the last twenty years now I've been offering authentic, immersive experiences in the region of Lapland. Originally, I worked with my sister as operations manager for her tour company. So, finding,  sourcing and planning trips and excursions and this equipped me with a vast knowledge of the area and the tours that were being offered.

Location Information

This tour runs from Saariselkä, at a resort village in northern Finland, deep in the heart of Lapland.

Guests must meet at the reception of the resort, 15 minutes prior to start. Groups who require thermal clothing, must meet at the safari house of the resort, 30 minutes prior to start.

Obviously we can’t give away too much information right now as Santa’s home and workshop is in a top secret location.
