This was a really cool place to see! A place where you can become a kid again. See Santa, head to the husky park, hang with and learn about the reindeers, send a post card from the post office, go sliding in the snow/snow tubing. There is a lot to do here for all ages. There are cute little shops... More

Great place but paying 40 EUR for a photo with Santa is outrageous! And they don't even print it out!

When you go to Lapland, you must visit Santa Claus Village, otherwise why are you there? We saw Santa, stood within the Arctic Circle, went on a Husky Ride and talked to the Reindeer. The children and grandchildren thought that it was amazing.

It is a well organized complex and I think every age group can find something for themselves. The shopping facilities, the restaırants and of course Santa's office and his offical postoffice where you can send postcards even for the future are nice things to remember.

Beautiful place, Ideal if you want to cross the Arctic Circle. Santa is here, as well as reindeer rides and husky rides. Both of these are expensive and you can get better value if you want to do these elsewhere. Most shops here sell Christmas curios and nic nacs

I've been the in September, the place was big and nice. There were 2/3 souvenir shops. I found it a good place but in my opinion it was really commercial.

This is very commercial but we had a great time anyway. We were a family of 4 adults with 3 grandchildren ages 3, 4, and 7. They have all kinds of things to do...mini snowmobiles, dogsledding, reindeer sleigh rides, ice skating, tubing, and the ice house to visit. You can even stand on the Arctic Circle line and get a...

Place to visit but only for one day. It has nothing special, made ​​of many shops and restaurants. Beautiful is the Santa' home. It's Recommended to view when there are Christmas events.

It was a "compulsory visit" to leave some money in Finland:-). The village is nice but this is really about shopping. The shopping however is of good quality and you get great local artcraft items at a very reasonable price (for Finland). Maybe it is different at X'mas time when you should really feel like it is a special place...
