We stay in Santa Claus Holiday Village on 5-7 Feb, when we just stepped in the airport lobby, the staff was waiting us already. Then the shuttle send us to our house, after that checked in in the main office. Since it's our honey moon trip, so the staff gave us a special offer, we met Mr.Santa who is very... More

We had such an excellent stay at Santa village. It's located conveniently 5min away from the airport. The moment our driver dropped us at our village, we were wowed at how beautiful the area is. The cabins we stayed at were clean, cosy, and the beds were comfy. The private sauna was also fantastic during the winter season. It's really... More

This is my second time stayed in this village, April 2015 and January 2016. Very good location, close to the airport, and if you like to visit Rovaniemi city, you can take a bus (Route no.8) at the bus stop just outside Santa Claus Gift House. Dining is not a problem, several restaurants there, or you can buy food at... More

We had a truly magical stay in Lapland. Stayed for 3 nights with a family of 5, in two cabins. The cabins were something to believe... amazing, spacious, well heated and allowed for adjoining rooms easily. The food was the only issue, we found the Kids meals for the three nights of low quality and the same pretty much each... More

All smiles from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. This is a holiday village with cozy cabins right on the Arctic Circle. We stayed here for 8 nights back in Nov and I could not fault our stay. The cabins were clean and well heated, equipped with a sauna and small kitchenette, tea/coffee making facility and a... More

Stayed one night in the cottages. Didn't realise there were saunas in each rooms, very cool! Room was very tidy and comfortable. There is a small kitchenette in each room which we didn't use but looks well equipped. Staff very friendly and willing to help. We arrived very early and no questions were asked when they took our bags into... More

I wasn't sure if I should give this 2 or 3 to 5 but I picked 2/5 because it's too expensive for what it is. It is located in the Santa's village and you can have your own cabin with sauna and kitchenette. You need to wash any glasses/plates you use (otherwise you have to pay extra), there aren't many...

Everything is great at the Village. Nothing extravagant but hotel facilities are very decent, from reception to breakfast area, and in-room kitchenette to sauna. Nothing to complain about. There are just two minor things - The walking distance from the hotel main building to the villas is not a short one and it's out in the open field. It was... More

We travelled with Thomas cook on a day trip. Our expectations were high and the experience was far better than we could have imagine. Seem less organisation and lots of experiences but actually the best thing was just playing in the snow. My daughter is 5 and I would really recommend the trip, no it's not cheap but leaves you...
