Instead of bringing the Christmas fairy tale to you, this year it’s time to seek out your own one.
Where better to enjoy a Christmas adventure than Lapland? Rovaniemi is the capital of the region and, most importantly, the official home of Santa Claus – ‘his Buckingham Palace’ if you will. With over 10,000 students, it’s not simply a great place to take children but one where all manner of fun abounds. And if you’re seeking the spectacular, Rovaniemi is also a great spot to take in the Aurora Borealis. Who needs twinkling Christmas lights when nature will do it for you?
The scenery surrounding this Alpine village – the imposing Dachstein mountains and the serene lake Hallsätter See – are matched only by the chocolate box beauty of the town itself.
