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 on Christmas.

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!

Was a little less personal then it was lead to believe it was going to be, Santa kept repeating himself (like it should have been 15-20 min and not half an hour and it should have been cheaper. But for the most part my kids thought it was exciting but mostly I think it was my hype before hand. My vote is more stories and songs and stuff from Santa and less of Santa asking if they have been good this year.

Thanks, for a nice online meeting with Santa Clause. For my 3 year old son it was great to have the possibility to meet Santa Clause in this special year.

This really fun for the kids to talk to Santa, he is very nice and love chatting with the kids! His background decorations are so magical and the kids had a great time talking to Santa!

Such a great experience! I can’t imagine all the names that come across Pentti’s plate yet he really takes the time to personalize each experience and make it magical. Our kids think it’s so cool they now know Santa really lives in Finland! We did a private family experience and it was amazing!

This is a great experience especially for kids and kidults. You can message Pentti in advance and let him know something about you and your kid. Then Pentti will customise his interaction with you. My kid was surprised that Santa Claus (Pentti) knew exactly and talked about what she wanted for Xmas this year. Thank you Pentti.

There was not much structure to this experience. The host was not educated well on Santa’s history or role. He didn’t know his own reindeer names. I was highly disappointed.
