As children we heard so much about Santa and where he lived, as an adult I could afford to come and see for myself, even though it is a fairy land experience for children, adults too can enjoy the whole experience, even without children with you....We were here in the month of July, no snow, but even still an enjoyable...

If you have children and are planning on spending thousands to get here and expect the worlds most magical experience - I would probably recommend giving it a miss. My older sister was on exchange in the University nearby so we didn't travel especially to see Santa. We had a nice time (I was age 17 and she was 22)... More

Santaclausvillage is a living fairytale, hundred and hundred of lighted christmastrees, snow elves, reindeers, the shops, the crossing of the arctic circle! Even as an adult you feel the charm of this all!!

Meeting Santa was awesome. We went in May so the total wrong season so it was perfect. No lines, no crowds, Santa was great! The shopping was all the same from store to store, just some were 1 or 2 euro cheaper, but likely would even out overall

I was there for an afternoon and had the opportunity of meeting Santa, I stayed for five minutes with him and had some pictures (you can't take your own pictures, after the visit you can buy them for about 25 euros). But now they offer you the option of having a video of the whole visit, with the pictures included... More

Could post cards to friends with the Santa's post office stamp. Postage is the same price for all over the world ;)

a little on the touristy side, but clearly a very fun experience if you have young children... they keep it all very well run and have some imaginative sets to add to the experience.

At Santa Claus' main post office there at Santa's Village you can buy stamps and even have your letter or postcard postponed until Christmas for delivery. Ladies behind the counter were very friendly and they come dressed as elves everyday.

Was an amazing day! It was white and snowing everywhere with christmas carols playing. Meeting santa was very exciting and makes you feel like a little kid again. Loved that no matter your age Santa sits with you for a chat for a while. Great day!
