I guess it was the raining day that made my trip a bit disappointing. I think I will try visit this place during winter. The Santa was very welcoming and friendly.

Fun place to visit. You get to meet Santa himself. But He doesn't give gifts. He speaks all languages and is a really jolly guy!

Nice and warm atmosphere, our kids (5&7) loved the opportunity to shake hands with father Xmas. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience.

Really touristic place with a lot of souvenirs shops. Visit Santa's is magical, even if you are a grown-up. He is nice and talk to you. The business in this place, apart from the souvenirs, are the pictures with Santa (that mostly everybody buy) that are really expensive (30€,35€ or 40€). It was so strange to be involved on X-mas...

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

Visited third time Santas Village and Santa Claus Office, whle returning from up north. If you have kids, you really must visit Santa! He is so nice, kind and talks freindly to the kids, who actually are quite scared of him :) The way to the Santa is nice and mysterious, Santa´s Little Helpers are very friendly and the Santa...
