Christmas is celebrated all around the world. But for 2019 Expat Club brings you the most magical Christmas in the most magical place of all… Because this year we travel to the North of Finland, namely to the official hometown of Santa Claus himself: Rovaniemi. If you ever wondered where your Christmas letters are being sent to, who reads them, and who wraps your gifts, you will learn all the answers during this special Christmas trip.
Meet Santa and his elves in snowy Finland, enjoy his hospitality and celebrate Christmas like you’ve never done before, and with the nicest international people from Brussels.This trip is extra magical because Rovaniemi is perfectly located within the ring around the North Pole from where you can observe the Aurora Borealis. If you have never seen the Northern Lights before, this is your chance to enjoy this mysterious light in the skies above.
UPDATE 3 December:
Expat Club has the last spot available for an amazing Christmas adventure in Rovaniemi, Lapland.
This is Santa’s Official Hometown!!!
If you would like to join we can only offer you a single room.
If you want to join with a friend or your family, please call us at 0495-345144.

Our group currently consists of several solo travellers, a few couples and even families! In other words, we have a wonderful mixed group for this trip. You are welcome to join us too!
Spend Christmas with a nice group of expats and enjoy from the best Christmas atmosphere you can find anywhere in the world. Do NOT delay your booking because the trip will fill up and we may not be able to offer you the same program as the rest of the group if you try to book as late as possible.
