Uber officially does it all. The ride share app-slash-food delivery platform—which also supplies helicopters, party buses,and restaurant reservations now—is introducing Uber Sleigh. And yep, it's exactly what it sounds like. You can book a reindeer-pulled sleigh ride directly through the app now. 

Here's the real kicker: It's free. The sleigh ride part, that is. You will have to get yourself to Lapland, Finland, where said reindeer will be pulling said sleighs. The experience is bookable during two time-slots this month: 10 am and 2 pm between December 12 and December 18.

"We're delighted to bring Christmas dreams to life with the launch of Uber Sleigh in Lapland." 

The sleigh ride will include a trip through the snow-covered forest to Rovaniemi, which just so happens to be the officially recognized hometown of Santa Clause.
