The hunt for Santa in Lapland.
First check that you are on the Arctic Circle (and get it confirmed in English too)
Find the enchanted forest in Lapland, the one where you get a flash of sunlight right on 11am.
Find the special trail where Santa’s elves have sprinkled seeds for the hungry forest birds who did not fly south for the winter.
(Although I hardly think Georgie cuts the mustard as a HUNGRY FOREST BIRD)
Meet Santa’s reindeer herder, and undergo special initiation ceremony.
Special Note here – turns out Santa does not use a GPS to navigate his way around the world. In Lapland you can undergo a special initiation ceremony so that Santa will always be able to find you.
I’m sorry it’s a secret ceremony, so I am not allowed to tell you exactly what happens or to show you the Reindeer Herder’s face.
Then you drive your own Reindeer Sleigh further into the Enchanted Forest
After a long, cold journey you arrive at Santa’s Post Office where you have a bit of a sit down and a fireside chat with a plump reindeer.
Then you want to go through all the mail and see if you can find your letter from Australia
Lot of mail here to check through.
Jump up on to the top of the mail sorting shelves for a closer look
Here’s the Australian Mail!
I know you’re not supposed to read other people’s mail, but it can be very interesting to see what other people have asked Santa to bring them for Christmas.
Then you have to be very, very, very good for another whole year!
