Arctic Circle

The Arctic Circle in Finland is an imaginary line on the ground 8 km north of Rovaniemi and 2600 km from the North Pole.
There is a little village with shops and restaurants and Santa Claus has his home here where he answers letters from all over the world.
You can visit Santa Claus and have a picture with him but I didn't, I am more a dutch "Sinterklaas" believer.
It was rather weird to walk around between all this Christmas and Artic stuff with unusual high summer temperatures, 28 degrees C or 82.4 F!

    Good to see your interesting new photos, I look forward to seeing more.

    Welcome back!

  2. i think i was there as well!
    could you also send postcards, that they then would keep until christmas, and then send them for you?

  3. Welcome back! I just expect to see snow when the Artic Circle is mentioned! These and the photos below are fascinating. Keep them coming!

  4. So that is where Santa Claus has his office!

  5. CaT,
    You're right there is a special post office for. Funny you have been there too.

  6. Thank you all for your nice comments. It is good to know you missed me so did I with you.

  7. You were at the Artic Circle and it was that warm! How can that be? How can Santa work without his sleigh and surely the Elves are in a full sweat!

    Love the photos...


  8. Genie,
    Yes it was strange, I had once seen it on TV with snow and sleigh indeed. This was so different, like a wrong movie.
