Is there an alternative to Santa Claus’s North Pole City? Indeed there is if you’re not lucky enough to be a member of the supernatural community with an invite to Santa’s Winter Wonderland. Or if you are unable to locate it on your own. For everyone else there’s Santa Claus Village in Finland. The Santa Claus Village is a Christmas themed amusement park resort near Rovaniemi in the Finnish Laplands. It includes Santa Claus Park. The actual Arctic Circle runs right through the village and is marked by a white lines painted on the ground throughout the park.
The Christmas village is a unique opportunity for anyone to get a feel for the real North Pole Village within the greater North Pole City . This includes meeting Santa Claus, the Elves, and even taking sleigh rides with reindeer. We have it on good authority that the real Santa Claus does in fact appear there a handful of times per year. Unfortunately, for security reasons those dates aren’t revealed. This is similar to Santa sometimes posing as Mall Santa’s during Christmas. There’s also a rumor that a paranormal portal to the real North Pole City is hidden somewhere in the resort. To learn more you can go to the Santa Claus Village website.
