Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, Finland is a magical destination that should be on everyone’s travel bucket list. The village, located on the Arctic Circle, is home to the big man himself – Santa Claus, making it a popular destination for families looking for a festive winter experience 365 days a year.
The atmosphere is truly magical, with Christmas lights, decorations, and music creating a festive and cheerful atmosphere.
In addition to meeting Santa, there are plenty of other activities to keep visitors entertained. The village has a variety of souvenir shops selling Christmas-themed gifts and decorations, as well as restaurants and cafes serving traditional Finnish cuisine.
But for those looking for adventure, Snowman World is a must-visit attraction. The winter wonderland offers a unique experience with its snow and ice sculptures, ice bar, and fun activities.
The snow and ice sculptures are truly stunning and a testament to the skill and creativity of the sculptors. Visitors can marvel at the intricate details and impressive designs while taking in the serene beauty of the surrounding snowy landscape. The sculptures are also beautifully illuminated at night, creating a magical atmosphere.
The Snowman World ice bar is another highlight. The bar is made entirely of ice and offers a selection of delicious drinks that are served in glasses made of ice! It’s a fun and memorable experience to sip on a cocktail while sitting on a chair made of ice! From the bar, you can also get a sneak peak at the partner Snow Hotel with one of the guest rooms recreated on site so visitors can experience the ice rooms and experience sleeping on a bed made entirely of ice! The adjoining ice restaurant is also open to visitors providing a very cool (sorry couldn’t resist!) and unique dining experience with a daily set menu.
In addition to admiring the sculptures and enjoying drinks at the ice bar, there are also plenty of activities to keep visitors entertained. Snow tubing is a popular activity, where visitors can slide down the slopes on inflatable tubes and ice skating is available. There’s also a maze made of snow that is a fun challenge for all ages.
