We travelled here last winter with our two daughters aged 6 & 12 and we had a great time. There were many activities to do including snow tubing, husky dog riding, reindeer riding and more and we enjoyed them all. We stayed for 6 nights which was a perfect amount of time for us. All apart from one day we... More

We visited on a day trip to Lapland with our daughter and had a brilliant day. The Santa village was lovely and the activities were great- reindeer sleigh riding, husky dog sleds, and free time to go sledging and snowball fights- just wish they could have lasted slightly longer! The rep with us was fantastic with the kids my daughter... More

This place is nestled in the most beautiful surroundings, we visited at xmas so there was snow everywhere and it was just gorgeous. The food is very average, although i guess if you have more of an 'experienced' palette you may find it more enjoyable. The log cabin was absolutely lovely, spotlessly clean, fantastic facilities, so cozy, warm, sauna, I... More

Truly magical experience for all the family. Lives up to high expectations and did not disappoint. Recommend to all, especially young primary aged children. Accommodation- chalet style with double bed and sofa bed for 2 so family all in same room. Mini kitchen also present with local store within petrol station over the road or supermarkets 5min taxi ride away.

If you want to get into the Christmas mood, you need to visit this place. On the 23.12 is the official "Santa Claus launch", which is also being aired around the world. Before Santa takes off there is singing and playing with the elfs and the best part is that it's not made too long so even the youngest children... More

In spite of a gloomy rainy evening ( no darkness in mid June) we enjoyed our spacious clean and modern cabin. The sauna was a wonderful end to our day after our long trip! Highly recommended to spend at least one night at the village.

What a wonderful village! We had such a nice stay stay in Santa Claus Holiday Village. If you travel to meet Santa Claus - a must is to stay in Santa Claus Holiday Village. There are cosy apartments with sauna, Christmas tree, sledge :) you can find a Santa Claus during breakfast. I would love to go back there someday

Nice cosy, spacious, clean room with finish sauna in the bathroom. Breakfast was everything wat we needed. The room had a small kitchenette. It's also not that far away from the official Santa's airport in Rovaniemi. The village itself is nice to have a walk trough the shops.
