Full description
Prepare yourself for an exciting journey to the Finnish-Swedish border region. Upon arrival, you will be served a glass of champagne and light snacks in the bar made of pure Lappish ice and snow. After enjoying a drink in this cold, but still cozy place, you will be taken to the seaside bar for a spectacular river view. Santa's little helpers will be waiting for you here and take younger visitors to have the opportunity to join the Elf’s School and become Santa’s helpers themselves. Since it's a real school, children will be rewarded with memorable certificates.

Meet the most welcomed guest of New Year’s Eve, Santa Claus! He'll be there with a huge bag of toys and presents for everyone. Join the open-air festivities and have a chance to celebrate the last minutes of the year in a unique way. Children and their parents can spend the remaining time of the year tobogganing, cruising on mini-snowmobiles, and trying other outdoor activities.

An essential part of the Finnish New Year's Eve festivities are the numerous fireworks at midnight. As you'll be on the border of the two countries with different time zones, you'll get to see fireworks twice.
