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.

We visited with our 5 (almost 6) and 7 1/2 year old boy and girl. They were beside themselves with excitement after being "chosen" by Santa Claus to visit. Come the day, we were collected by Toompi the Troll and driven ( quite well for a Troll!) through the snow covered Forest to where they lived. We were met by... More

This was with out a doubt the most organised and amazing organised thing I have ever done on a holiday. We did a private trip. An elf (annalina) picked us up from Santa's village, and it was perfect from then on in. My son chatted to the Elf all about Elf magic, lives etc. We at Jollukka and went to... More

this was a trip that the kids will remember forever. The tour built suspenseful excitement from the elf bus pick up, through the drive through the dark candlelit forest, to the arrival at Santa's workshop and elf school. Adults may find a visit here a bit antiquated, but what made the trip memorable for my wife and I was the... More

We booked the Dream of Joulukka package.This was really a magical experience for our young children. The coach ride to the location is already quite intriguing as you wind through the magical forest in the northern winter darkness. The first stop was Elf school were the children participated in elfish activities. This was held in a hut heated and lighted... More

Joulukka is by far the best place for santa claus visits in Rovaniemi, the atmosphere is so different from the purely commercial "Santa Claus Village". Kids adore this place!

This was just magical - even the drive there on a road getting smaller and smaller into the snowy wilderness felt special. The command centre is beautifully done and Santa himself utterly believable. The only complaint I would have had is the group was too large for the price we paid (about 8 families) and there was a lot of... More

Our family LOVED our time at Joulukka. My children, 7 and 10, were totally captivated by Elf Jimmy and Thumppina the Troll. My 10 year old was "questioning" things about Christmas, and this brought Christmas sparkle back into his sweet eyes. It is a low key experience, but the activities, the setting, and the personalities of our elves were all... More

If you want to experience the magic of Christmas, then I highly recommend booking tours at Joulukka when you are in Rovaniemi. We went to the Christmas Celebration on the 24th of December, and on the 27th to the Dream of Joulukka and the Guardians of Lapland (with a private meeting with Santa in between). If you are looking for... More
