We visited Santa's village a couple of days ago - two just over 50 year olds expecting to stay about an hour on the basis that if you are that close you ought to see it. We were there for four hours!! The village is a rustic selection and it is free to go round, and free to see Santa... More

Shopping complex. Very disappointing. Hardl any Xmas decoration, just reindeers, moose etc. as in every other souvenir shop. The office with Santa was disappointing as well, I wrote a seperate review for it. The post office was disappointing too, the people we sent cards to could not see the very special stamp, not enough ink...

A very long shore excursion from a cruise that docked in Helsinki, Finland, but I really wanted to cross the arctic circle. This tour took us to Rovaniemi where we took a boat trip up the river to a reindeer farm and then to Santa Claus village. Though it was not winter, it was still an amazing trip. The village... More

This is just mainly a shopping complex. "Santa Claus" supposingly has an office there. For 28 Euros you can take a photo with him. Santa Claus will also talk with you for two minutes. The conversation is videotaped and for sale. Not too many people in the village when we were there

It's our first time to visit Santa Claus Village, it's so excited to be here in Winter. With thick snow, Christmas trees, light decoration and Santa Claus....my husband and I also felt so amazing coz we finally spent a real Christmas here. Although there was lots of merchandise on offer, it didn't matter. One thing I need recommend is Santa... More

I went there with my family, which aren't young, daughters and son-in-laws. I expected something for kids (which it is) but we all had a ball and I'm 55. It doesn't take long to get there from Rovaniemi (@30 mins) by bus, which specifically goes there from the middle of town, and its reasonably priced. Entry to the park is... More

It was a great experience to visit Santa's village! When i entered there, I felt like into a wonderful story with elfs and different creatures. I visited Santa's office and i took a wonderful picture with him. It was so awesome! I recommend you to go there if you're in that area but don't forget to wrap up!!

Got a bus to the Santa Claus village along heavily snow covered roads. Village covered in snow which was magical for our 2 young children. Felt that while there was lots of merchandise on offer we did not feel under pressure to buy anything - but we did! Santa Claus was such a kindly man and just blew our childrens... More
