Overview

Embark on a magical journey to the heart of Iceland’s festive spirit with our tour to the Santa Claus House, or Jólahúsið, located near the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri.
The Santa Claus House is a shop and tourist attraction that is open year-round, offering a genuinely magical world of Christmas. The house is filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of Christmas, with two floors packed with Christmas trinkets. Among the extensive range of goods are decorations, food, music, artworks, books, toys, homeware, and ornaments, all associated with the Yuletide. Many of the products are Icelandic, with many authentic local handicrafts for sale.

The staff at the Santa Claus House are experts on Icelandic folklore and how it relates to the festive season, and are happy to answer any questions you may have. The house also features several buildings other than the shop itself, including a tower with what may be the world’s largest advent calendar, and the Christmas Garden, a beautiful festive space. The garden has a miniature replica of an Icelandic turf church, and is home to the Wishing Well of Unborn Children, where guests are encouraged to make a wish for future generations.

The Santa Claus House is easy to reach from Akureyri; simply take Route 821 south from the town, and you’ll find it to your left after about ten minutes. If you reach the village of Hrafnagil, you’ve gone slightly too far.

This tour offers a unique blend of festive cheer and Icelandic culture, making it an unforgettable experience for all visitors. Whether you’re a Christmas enthusiast or interested in Icelandic traditions, this tour has something for everyone.
