Things to do in Ivalo
- Ski in Saariselkä
Saariselkä is a great choice for an all-round winter holiday, with a guarantee of meeting Santa for all December arrivals. Being so far north, there is a high probability of seeing the Northern Lights too.
- Meet Santa's Elves
The Esprit resort of Saariselkä is home to Santa’s northern tribe of Saari Elves, a hardy outdoor bunch, renowned for their lively energetic personalities, and whose ears and noses don’t grow so long as their cousins from other tribes, due to the time they spend outdoors, playing in the snow, rather than concentrating on toy-making in one of Santa’s busy workshops. Try to see if you can spot them playing in the snowy woods near Santa’s Cabin.
