We loved our trip here, Lapland was just beautiful.So glad we took our kids, even though expensive, I feel it was worth it. We travelled via snowmobile and sledge from the airport, through a landscape of snow and christmas trees. We did a Reindeer ride, a husky ride and snow mobile ride. Santa was very authentic. Food was great, The... More

It was a very rainy day. Lots of inside shops to see. Post office was quaint and very neat. Many of the gift shops were similiar so there was some reduncancy. However, they had some unique things you couldnt get elsewhere. The visit is good for 2-3 hours at most.

Maybe this place would be different if visited in winter. We only visited because it is just into the Article Circle.

There is nothing as wonderful as taking young children here to Santa Claus Village. They'll never forget it and you'll never forget the look on their faces. Just do it!

I visited during Christmas so it was very very festive and to this day, it brings back so many memories and I yearn to go back. It is a charming little village with many shops with cool, Finnish things to buy so I really enjoyed walking around. There are also ice-slides for little children to play on and the Santa... More

We spent 2 hours here, which was more than enough. A big marked line passes through the village with Arctic Circle embossed on it. It very commercial, with shops and the chance to have and pay for a photo with Santa. A big plus is sending cards from Santa now, or to arrive 2 weeks before Christmas

Firstly, it's magical with all the snow and lights everywhere! Secondly there are ample shops to buy the most beautiful souvenirs from! Even if we had to wait an hour to... More

Children will love the place. The magical experience of meeting Santa will be spell binding. Even the adults will be mystified for sometime. Best to visit during the winter when snow will add to the natural beauty and many activities like sledge ride etc can be enjoyed.
