As Santa Claus cannot fly everyone to Lapland to celebrate this special time of the year with him, he has arranged a possibility to take part in the festivities online.

This year Santa Claus will open the Christmas season virtually on Saturday 7.11. at 19.00 (UTC+2).

Join the festivities and watch it live from Arctic Circle starts on Visit Rovaniemi Facebook page and Livestream.

Rovaniemi enjoys exceptional early winter days and nights with good amount of snow and nice minus degrees. Santa Claus Village is like from Christmas fairytale with white snow cover, big and small Christmas trees and Christmas lighting.

The beloved Santa Claus can be visited every day of the year in Santa Claus Village, Arctic Circle in Rovaniemi. Despite the uncertain times, one thing is for sure: Christmas is coming.
