It’s finally Christmas Eve and that means Santa is now on his way dishing out gifts across the globe. If you want to keep a close eye on where he’s been and where he’s going next there are plenty of ways to track Santa and his reindeer. You can tune in via your smartphone, log in on a PC or even watch his every move using the TV in your living room. Here are three of the best ways to track Santa and see how long you have to wait until he comes whizzing down the chimney.



Google is back once again with plenty of festive fun. The tech giant always offers a feature-packed way to check up on Santa tracker and 2023 is no different. Not only can you see exactly where he is via an interactive map but also pass the time while you wait by playing games and learning coding and more.

In fact there are tons of activities on Google’s Tracker website including games such as Snowball Storm, Wrap Battle, Penguin Dash and Gift Slingshot plus you can get Santa ready for a selfie in the salon and create a festive band thanks to the Elf Jamband.

The Google Santa tracker is totally free to use in all the most popular web browsers including Chrome and Safari.




To keep track of Santa you can get some help from space. Every year the very nice people at NORAD, (that’s the North American Aerospace Defence Command), hand over their state-of-the-art satellites to make sure millions can watch where the sleigh is heading next.

Incredibly, NORAD Tracks Santa has been in operation for over 60 years and is still one of the most popular ways of watching the reindeer whizz around the globe.

According to NORAD Director of Operations, Colonel Harry Shoup, received the first ‘Santa’ call and had his staff check radar data to see if there was any indication of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Indeed there were signs of Santa, and children who called in were given an update on Santa’s position.

You can download the app on both Android and iPhone and, once installed, you’ll get a precise GPS location of his progress and how far away he is from your home.


If you have Sky Q, Sky Stream or Sky Glass in your living room you can watch Santa on the big screen via Sky’s very own tracking technology.

Just grab your remote controls, tap the voice search button and say one of a number of phrases including “Where’s Santa?”; “Santa Tracker”; “Where’s Santa Tracker?”; “Where is Santa right now?”; “Follow Santa”; “Is Santa coming tonight?”

A full guide will then appear on the biggest screen in your home.

The Santa tracker isn’t the only thing you might want to try today. Sky has also launched a live countdown to the big day plus there are 12 new video messages from Santa on Sky Glass, Sky Stream and Sky Q.
