Bases in Lapland

Where Santa Lives

As Santa Claus is such an important and popular figure, in addition to Korvatunturi, he has a number of Santa Bases all over Lapland where he greets visitors.

Korvatunturi (Ear Mountain)

Korvatunturi is a fell rising to a height of 483 metres in Finnish Lapland. Its name in Finnish means Ear Mountain due to the three large ears positioned on its summit. These ears function a little bit like satellites triangulating and sucking all the dreams and wishes of adults and children alike into the mountain.

A secret office is located deep within Korvatunturi for processing these dreams and wishes. This is the place where the Wishes, Hopes & Desires Elves receive the transmissions of dreams and wishes and forward them on to Santa Claus, Mrs Claus and the elves working in the workshop. Korvatunturi is also Santa’s home: this is why its secret meandering tunnels can only be accessed by Santa Claus, Mrs Claus and the elves.
