The highlight of my visit as regards amenities was the cabin, which was so comfy, and with its own sauna. I would recommend taking some food with you, as it is self-catering. I was only there for a couple of days, so used the onsite restaurants, the best of which is undoubtedly the Kotahovi, which really excels in its lappish... More

We travelled there with two kids (4 and 7). They loved the place, and so did we. The cabins are spacious and incredibly warm. We went for the rides (huskies, reindeer) and we all enjoyed the hospitality. We even had a chance to see the northern lights from the window of our cabin. The place is surrounded by forest, covered... More

The cottage come with a small kitchen and an electric sauna. The place is secluded on its own. It was a great thing that we bought some groceries from K-market before driving to the village. The place is big with many activities however it seem so quiet and not vibrant enough. Everything here is about extra payment. When we asked... More

Santa Village is an essential stop on any Arctic Circle Adventure. And instead just come here for a day, staying there actually is double the fun. You have more time to take in the Santa land magic, both at days and at nights. The hotel is expensive, at 150 euro per night it is only an adequate 4 stars hotel.... More

Great location only 5 min drive from the airport and 15 minutes from the centre of rovenemi. Our cabin was modern clean and plenty comfortable for two people. Cute little kitchen if needed and own sauna to help defrost after those cold days. You are right next to santas village which would be great if you had kids - lots... More

If you want to personally give Santa Claus your Christmas list, this is the perfect place to visit with your family. We arrived mid afternoon and were able to feed the reindeer and spend a few minutes with Santa Claus. We then went to our cabin and spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and enjoying this beautiful place. The... More
