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!

Santa did a great job acting and was sure to address each child. Would have been nice to “show” things or have a list of items he wanted in advance.

I am a lover of everything Christmas and didn't have to think for a moment to take this chance to meet Santa from Lapland and he didn't disappoint. First of all, what a magical setting. You truly feel like you are meeting Santa. We had a session with a mix of kids with drawing and wishlists for Santa and adults like me who just wanted to ring in the holiday cheer early on. This is a great Experience for families and for any adults who love Christmas and Santa!

It was fun to see Santa in his outfit, and my 9-year-old enjoyed that part of it. I think this would best be experienced in a private group so that the children would know each other. I also think it could be improved by being more structured and guided, rather than having the time be spent mostly by Santa asking for questions from the participants (who were all children and naturally want to shout out questions and comments over each other, so the more talkative end up dominating the meeting). Also it would have been fun to see some photos from around Lapland and learn more about what his life is like there, and also to have Santa engaging more directly with the children rather than staying in his chair fairly far away from his camera setup. In all, it was a fun way to kick off the holiday season, but the price should be more reflective of the overall experience.
