We genuinely believe in Santa Claus. We are enthusiastic about new ideas and we believe in continuous learning about how guests perceive sensations. We believe in the reward of a simple smile.

Local traditions and raw materials are strongly present in our activities, work and everyday life. We believe in pioneering and presenting the authentic experience that has been shaped through history.

Our life includes crossing the Arctic Circle every day. We are strongly committed to Rovaniemi and we can express the best of Lapland–pure nature with the summer Midnight sun, the authentic culture and unique position of the Arctic Circle in all its magic.
