Heading north to the polar circle or even to the real Lappland? Looking for souvenirs, or a cup of coffee during a long trip? There is a little different post office at Santa Claus Village. Children all over the world send letters to Santa. You can sit down and see what children wrote to him. That is the best of... More

Of course a tourist trap... But you need to see it when you sre there. A family photo with Santa is a bit pricy - 25-40 euro depending on the size. Lots of raindeer burgers to eat in the village.

Worth a visit and we came here to see the arctic circle. The shops were good but a lot of them were selling the same type of thing but guess that is to be expected. Great that you can send cards that will be sent at christmas time and sure it would be more magical at Christmas time or with... More

This is more about the experience than other thing. Sure Rovaniemi has things to do but to come so far you need an extra motivation. Coming with kids so they can see Santa and give him their letter for Christmas is great. They love such experience and I believe even later they will keep it as something special.

This is a must place to every Rovaniemi visitor year round. The village area offers souvenir places and history can be found from the Roosevelt cottage that was built to welcome Mrs Eleanor Roosevelt 1950. It's surreal feelling to listen christmas carrols at the summer evening when day doesn't go down at all and wait to go in side to... More

We visited in May but it was great fun all the same and we enjoyed looking round the small christmas museum and saying hello to Santa. The village is very close to Rovaniemi airport and there is lots of choice of food and drink (overpriced as usual in major tourist attractions) and also lots of souvenirs on offer. We sent... More

Not many visitors. You can take bus 8 in the city centre. Close to Revaniemi airport. The atmosphere is not very Christmas because we went there in summer. Most cafe and shops are close.

When you enter the Santa Claus office it feels as if you're a kid back. It is exactly so fairy tale types which we have dreamt in our childhood. You can meet the Santa upclose and personal here.. And guess what he is the real Santa and can even speak your language! Just fantastic experience
