What you'll do

Get ready for a meeting with a real Santa Claus from Lapland. I am always happy when I see happy faces, I love to see people sharing time with each other.

To start the experience, I will introduce myself and my background as Santa. I'll ask guests to introduce themselves - your name, where you are from, favorite topics at school, wishes for this holiday season, etc.

Each person will have a chance to chat with me and ask questions - I have over 400 years of experience as Santa, so you can ask me anything! For example, many people think that Santa lives in North Pole but I will explain that I live in Lapland. Of course I love to tell about all the elves behind the windows, who are making the toys in a toy factory - a very secret place. I'll share more about my secret home in Ear mountain, where I read all the letters, and eat delicious food Mrs Santa makes, especially rice porridge.

All ages are welcome! This is a great activity to do together over the holiday season, friends, families and teams!

Santa Claus loves to meet people after Christmas also! Have you ever been thinking what does Santa do the rest of the year?

The meeting is in English, but Santa speaks also Finnish of course and Swedish. Some words in Spanish, Russian, Italy, French and China.

If you think you are too old for this, you are wrong. A unique opportunity to become a child on the most beautiful day of the year

Great way to ensure Santa comes to your home wherever you are. He takes into account your child’s wishes. We were lucky this year to have an one-to-one with Santa which was a perfect moment for my daughter.

Our kids loved speaking with the Real Santa and still tell their friends at school about how Santa just “showed up on my iPad, magically!”. They were especially impressed that Santa had received their letter (texted to him by mom) and knew about how they helped their little sister and that they wanted a specific game for Christmas. Thank you, Pentti, for bringing magic into these dark-ish times.

Thank you so much for the experience. Despite the technical difficulties as well as the chaos/noise of all the kids, Santa was super professional. The kids loved that he went through and addressed each one individually with touches of personalization. Truly valuable experience. Merry Christmas!!

This was our second year of visiting Santa in Lapland! I was so grateful to find a safe way to spend time with him last year. And, with the variants looming again now, Zoom is a fantastic option. I recommend sending information about your children to Santa beforehand so he can personalize your time together. We actually have gotten to spend more time with Santa on this experience then when we used to visit in person. Zoom allowed grandparents in two different states to join their grandsons in a third state. In pre-Covid days the boys would have visited Santa locally and we would not have been able to share that excitement. I highly recommend this ingenious online experience.

An amazing and magical evening for the children in Asia - from Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong. The group was a little shy at the beginning but as the children join the sing-a-long, they began to warm up to Santa and could not bear to let him go. Thank you so so much for the lovely experience with your team.
