At the Post Office, you will also need to learn how to sort and stamp the mail that Santa receives from children all over the world. Yet, which of these traditional Arctic activities will lead you to Santa’s secret hideaway?

When you discover his home in Lapland, Santa will be delighted to meet you and every child will be rewarded with a special gift from him.
