Being in the Forest with the Elves
The elves are the best forever! Being in the forest was an incredible experience, we were learning about the history and manners of Finland from the elves, and playing with them! They are so funny, I want to come back now!
"We didn't do the private experience and only had about 12 others in our group which didn't take away from the experience at all. The kids loved the elves that looked amazing and were very playful. the meeting with Santa at the end felt very private the way the elves organized it and we had plenty of time to chat and ask questions. The forest itself is stunning with squirrels and dear running through the trees. Highly recommend."
The Best Christmas Activity Ever!
By far, this was the best Christmas experience we had in Rovaniemi. A HUGE thank you to Elf Sandrina who captured the essence of Christmas and made my daughter's experience incredible. To be taken out to the forest and go through Elf School couldn't have been more magical.
Christmas spirit found
"We took our two grand children (3 and 5 years) to Joulukka. To them (as well to us) it was a fascinating, exciting place. The elves were so nice to children guiding them through the magic world. They knew them by name which gave a very personal touch for the visit."
Once in a lifetime experience
"This adventure was truly magical. The elves were wonderful and the entire excursion was like a dream. Just beautiful."
