Want to visit Santa at the North Pole? Head to Rovaniemi, Finland. Located in the Arctic Circle, this town has an official Santa Claus Village! Known as “Santa’s official North Pole residence” it is one of the most popular travel destinations in Finland. The village is open year round for kids of all ages to see Santa and his elves. The winter wonderland scenery lends itself to tons of snowy adventures including dog sledding, snowmobiling & tours to see the northern lights.
Pack your favorite Cabana Life sweatshirts & sport zip polos for extra layers of warmth and protection! According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, UV rays can damage your skin year round, especially at high altitudes or on reflective surfaces like snow or ice. This means even on snowy mountaintop getaways you still need sun protection! So don’t forget your sunscreen and UV blocking snow-goggles.

Germany knows how to do Christmas! Between fairytale castles and snow topped mountains the rich traditions & history of Germany make it a must-see.
