Departures Dec 2005: 17, 21, 25, 29 / Jan 02

Let the Spirit of Christmas enter your heart at Santa Park! Our Christmas Adventure with Santa brings you to the heart of Finnish Lapland, Rovaniemi, the center of the Sami life and culture. Experience a special traditional Finnish Christmas above the Arctic Circle. Winter begins early in Lapland, turning this exotic region know for its fells, lakes, rivers and forests into winter wonderland. Snow brightens up the scene as the days grow shorter, lakes and streams begin to freeze, and at his home town of Rovaniemi, Santa and his elves are busy making Christmas presents. Visit his village, which includes Santa Claus’ Office and Santa Claus’ Main Post Office as well as the reindeer park and Santa Park nearby. Wouldn't you like to have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be one of Santa's elves? All family members will be able to join in all the activities, from meeting Santa to Reindeer driving, Dog sledding and snowmobiling. Visit an original reindeer herder, learn about the culture and traditions of the indigenous Sámi people, and receive your reindeer driving license. Visit the Husky farm where you get instructions on the training and driving. Enjoy the snowmobile safari to Katkavaara, in the beautiful arctic hills.
