a visit to the Elf's farmyard

Entrance fee adult eur 15 and child (3-15y) eur 10

No pre-booking is needed for the visits. Tickets for the farm are purchased on arrival.

in addition to meeting the animals, the price includes winter activities.

in winter you will meet reindeer, alpacas, llamas, sheep and goats who can be outdoors even in cold weather. Through the window you can look at the lives of rabbits and birds.

In a traditional rustic setting at the Arctic Circle, next door to Santa Claus, you’ll find a welcoming little farmyard with reindeer, alpacas, sheep, llamas, goats, rabbits and different birds. You can watch domestic animals in their daily activities under Arctic weather conditions and, best of all, you can pet and feed part of them. Kids love them and they love kids!

Cross-country skiing: In winter time, Elf’s Farmyard offers an opportunity to cross the Arctic Circle on traditional Lappish wooden skis. And there’s more winter fun –coasting down the little hill on site! All the equipment you need is provided.

Guests can use our Lapland hut (kota) and campfire/barbecue. Buy snacks and drinks from the elf’s store.

All this is included in the entrance fee. Elf’s Farmyard is located at the Arctic Circle, at the north end of Santa Claus Village – and quite near Santa Claus himself.
