    In this Christmas visit you'll tour the main attractions of Lyon. Starting off in front of the Opéra National de Lyon you'll discover the Hotel de Ville, walk along the river Saône, and end up in the famous Perrache square of Place Carnot. Along the way, you'll find interesting features of the city, and discover the charms of a French Christmas.


 One day at the North Pole, Santa bursts out of his grotto looking worried. Turns out, his trusty assistant, Biscuit, is sick and he needs a replacement fast. You immediately sign up and embark on the most bizarre recruitment process of your life.

To prove that you’re worthy, he has sent you to the city to perform a number of challenges that will test your holiday spirit and determination.

After each challenge, you’ll unlock a new piece of the puzzle which will take you closer to Santa.

Can you impress him and earn your place among his elite team of elves? Only time (and some wacky challenges) will tell.
