Overview
More
Joulukka offers comprehensive experiences for the whole family deep in the mystical, authentic Lappish forest. Join the Elves in their daily chores in operating Santa's Secret Command Center or the Trolls' mighty Brotherhood. Also the Snowy Girl lives in Joulukka taking you on an exciting journey in finding Santa and his magic powers. You may also spend time doing Santa's favorite sports such as ice fishing, skiing, kick sledging and tobogganing and sit by an open fire viewing the stars and searching for Northern Lights. The highlight of the day is when the children whisper their toy wishes to Santa's ear and finish the thrilling day in Joulukka with a delicious meal.
