Our dearest Father Christmas, also known as Santa Claus, wants each and every one of us to be able to comfortably receive and explore experiences in his village at Arctic Circle in Lapland. One of the most important services -if not the most important – are the reindeer rides and other programs with reindeer. This is why Santa brought his reindeer to the village, to the backyard of Santa Claus Office.
The rides start right next to Santa Claus Office (our address: Joulumaantie 13, Rovaniemi). There are different kind of rides and safaris available:
- Reindeer Path (400 m)
– Children: 10.00€/person (norm. 14.00€)
– Adults: 15.00€/person (norm. 18.00€)
- Forest Path (~1 km)
– Children: 20.00€/person (norm. 23.00€)
– Adults: 25.00€/person (norm. 29.00€)
- Winter Adventure (~3 km)
– Children: 40.00€/person (norm. 55.00€)
– Adults: 55.00€/person (norm. 70.00€)
- See for more details in: safaris and longer rides
The reindeer rides are available from 15th of November (or when permanent snow comes) to 15th April. The Reindeer Path and Forest Path are running non-stop throughout the day, and do not require pre-booking.
No matter what the weather will be like, you will stay warm. The sleighs are covered with warm reindeer hides, and you will be covered with a couple of hides as well. Usually there is no queue for the shorter rides. If you have to wait some minutes, you can warm up by the open fire and enjoy the Christmassy atmosphere right at the starting point of the rides. Also, after the ride it is nice to sit by the fire and let the dance of the flames entertain you.
