Our family of 5 stayed here for 3 nights and found Santa Claus Holiday village to be great. We had to book 2 adjoining rooms (1 cottage though) and found we had enough space. The rooms have stoves and microwave for cooking if self catering. They also have a great shower and sauna. It is definitely warm inside. The kids... More

I had been to the village 20 years prior and said if I had a child I would take them back, and we took our 5 year old arriving on 22 December leaving on 26 December. We stayed in a cabin. The cabins are clean, bed's comfortable and pretty private all things considered. If we had our time again we... More

We spent Christmas 2014 in cabin no 19, in SCHV (a four-night stay) and we can say that was our best Christmas so far! We had a lot of snow, we had a multitude of activities: a 3 km reindeer safari, a husky safari, a snowmobile safari in search for the northern lights, a visit to Ranua Zoo - we... More

Family of 8 traveled here from 18th-22 December 2014. 3 Children aged 4-7. Coming from Australia, the magic of the snow and only 2 hours of daylight every day was magical in its own right! The cabins are basic and very Nordic, but clean, comfortable and everything you need. We came here specifically to visit the 'real santa' and were... More

We went to Santa Claus Holiday Village so that we could visit Santa Park and meet the "real Santa", and also so that we could see the Northern Lights. We had a very interesting and enjoyable stay. The layout of the cottages in the village is extremely charming and picturesque. We were there from 26 Dec to 29 Dec. It... More

Decent (though somewhat spartan for the price), cabin style accommodation set alongside a forest and local entertainment options which have a great Christmas vibe but a definite commercial element which spoils it for the adults somewhat. It's difficult to maintain the magic when Santa has so many places he's at all at once! A range of outdoor activities are conveniently... More

It is worth the trip for the experiences that you will encounter. My family met Santa, rode snowmobiles, dog sleds, reindeer sleds and got a lot of great winter fun in. We saw some beautiful arctic sites and experienced cold like we have not in years. The hotel itself is fine. The rooms are good but basic for the price.... More

When in Roveniemi - especially winter time & Christmas - look no further. Little cabins beside Santas park & shops makes this a great stay! Especially for families. Where you can also find reindeers lurking, Santas post office & restaurants...a wonderful wonderful magical place! Some of our best memories were made here. Already planning to return :)

Stayed at the Santa Claus Holiday Village just a couple of days ago and it was simply perfect. The log cabins were so pretty in the snow and the sauna in the bathroom is perfect after a hectic day. The village itself is ideal as you can do everything you imagine there from reindeer rides to the ice bar. We... More
