The temperature can drop to -40C in the winter and reach +30C in the summer.
Santa lives on a fell called Korvatunturi (Ear Mountain) in the municipality of Savukoski. Santa can´t live on the North Pole because there isn´t anything to eat for his reindeer there. But in Finnish Lapland a reindeer is a very common animal and it has a lot of food there. There are about 200 000 reindeer in Finland. Eagles, foxes, swans and wood grouse are other common animals. The spruce is the most common tree in Lapland. Wild cloudberry and Arctic bramble are the two most highly valued berries of Lapland. Lapland is a paradise for all nature lovers!
Lapland is home of the HOLY CRAP, SANTA! Tours, Santa and snowflakes.
There's not much to do there, but it's still better than Norway.
