Guide to the Fazer Shop at Santa Claus Village

Find the shop by walking north from the Arctic Circle crossing line, towards the Marimekko store and playground.

Pass the Santa Village playground on your right, and the Santa Claus  Gift House and Arctic Circle Information Centre on your left.

The next building is home to the Karl Fazer Chocolate shop in the Santa Village.

No.1: Karl Fazer Blue Chocolate since 1891 

Our hot tip would be to go for the classic Karl Fazer Blue signature wrapped chocolates.

Fazer milk chocolate has been in business since 1922 in this famous blue wrapper, designed to symbolise the purity of Finnish nature. 

You can’t miss the blue, with gold lettering of the Fazer design.

Fazer’s chocolate is made in Finland and their cocoa is 100% responsibly sourced. 

Karl Fazer Chocolate is one of Finland’s most valued brands.
