Finding Santa Claus In Lapland

By on October 18, 2016

Christmas is a sign that Santa Claus is coming. If you listen carefully you will hear the jingle bells of his sleigh. We decided to go out on a journey to find Santa in the most magical countries in the world, so we can bring him back with us just in time for Christmas!

So, what are you waiting for? Start planning your trip!

Where’s Santa?

Akureyri, Iceland –  Visit the Christmas Garden in Akureyri,  to see where Santa’s workshop is while he visits Iceland. Only a 10-minute drive from the city center, you will see the beautiful red house, surrounded by magical gardens. Inside you will find amazing Christmas decoration from all over the world, and don’t forget to climb the fairy tower and see the world’s biggest Christmas calendar.
