Santa Claus House and the Elves’ Academy
Let’s salute the wannabe Santa’s elves. Lake Garda Trentino is Santa’s home and here there is no less than the Elves’ Academy to become a loyal Santa’s helper!
Even this year Santa has decided to move to Riva del Garda to conclude the preparations before the magical night. You will find him in his dwelling on the lake at Rocca di Riva del Garda from 31st Novembre to 31st December 2019. Here, kids can play, draw and shape something nice using their hands at the Elves’ Factory. In addition, they can get their face painted, wear Christmas clothing, play on Santa’s bed and, when it’s time for a snack, Natalina – Santa’s wife – will prepare some good hot chocolate and cookies!
Would you, my dear, become a Santa’s helper? The Elves’ Academy is waiting for you, book it now!
