We always like visiting Santa when close to Rovaniemi. The staff, or Santa and the elves to be more precise, have never disappointed us. Buying the pictures/video with Santa is not cheap but on the other hand it's free to visit and you can choose not to buy the photo if it doesn't turn out good (but it almost always... More

You just have to go however old you are regardless if you have kids with you or not. I wonder if I'm on the naughty or nice list?

This is a classical tourist trap. In Santa Claus office there is a "free entry". And when you enter the way leads you to Santa himself. Then you make a photo with him, talk some seconds to him and then you move some metres ahead where your photo is already waiting for you (more for your 30 €). We were... More

Before going inside to Santa Clauss one guy learn everything about country etc then when you go to Santa Claus he make you suprised.Wooow he knows everything something like that. Photos Nice but expensive so touristic. If we talk about Santa Claus village Post Office is interesting and I recommend it.

Our photograph with Santa and the video that we got is the great asset. We have many photographs on the arctic line. We also got a certificate on our names on having crossed Arctic Line. The nest thing is the Post Office from where we dropped Mail to our Grand children.

A wonderland. You would surely feel like a child here. They say this is the village where Santa Claus lives for the rest of the year when he is not busy distributing the gifts. I went in the mid of November. It was grey and it snowed from the moment I put my steps inside and through the night. It... More

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.
