Full description

Discover the magical Elf Hat Academy on the Arctic Circle close to Santa’s main office. Pay a visit to the academy where different kinds of elves gather to learn about ancient elf wisdom and crafts.

See how the Book-Elves read and organize larger and smaller books, Home-Elves practice the art of hiding in plain sight, Toy-Elves study the craft of toy making, Sauna-Elves learn secrets of sauna rituals, and Santa's-Elves prepare for the hustle and bustle of Christmas Eve.

Of course, it is impossible to learn all Elf wisdom at once, but during your secret visit to the charming Elf Hat Academy, the elves will share their tips and tricks on how to become an elves little helper yourself.

Become one of the elves, sneak a peek into their daily lives in the academy, and learn about the preparations for Christmas on the Arctic Circle. Upon graduation, receive a special elf mark to symbolize the newly acquired wisdom and a graduate diploma to always remember the secrets you have learned.

It was easy to find the place, one of the elves came to take us from the meeting point.. the staff is very friendly, they speak lots of languages so very easy to talk to them.. a nice experience overall but a bit boring.. the elves performance was good, just too short.. the good part was that you decorate some cookies, get an elf diploma and get an elf hat but that’s all :) thank you for the experience through xx

We arrived on time, but waited for 20mns for someone to pick us up. She brought us to a small room where two girls acting as elves talked to our little girl for about 15mns, then it was finished.
