OMG, this was a dream trip for my son, who was 5 years old at the time! He could barely speak when he met Santa Claus! We stayed in a very comfortable cabin, from which we could go sledding right from the door. My son spent hours sliding down the ice slides. We went into the ice hotel and checked... More

The village consists of many shops, some restaurants and cafés, Santa's office and post office and a number of cabins that you can rent as accomodtaion. The positive things to mention are the cabins. They are very spacious inside. A huge bed, a sofa, a small kitchenette with a huge fridge, a bathroom with your private sauna and a small... More

We spent 1 week in Santa Claus Holiday Village, Rovaniemi, Finland and absolutely fell in love with the place and the amazing people running it. We went in April so it was not as busy, yet the people were incredible nice and helpful. We had a week packed with activities that are available on site (a must plan financially), Safari... More

My husband, brother and I stayed at the santa Claus village for 3 nights just after the Christmas period. I believe it was still magic. We missed our connecting flight to rovaniemi and we had to wait for the later flight. The reception was picking up us from the airport they were fantastic. They were fine with the change of... More

Perfect cabin - high ceilings, beautiful decor, equipped kitchen, microwave, sauna, shower gel, hair dryer, refrigerator, sofa, proper double bed. I only have nice things to say about this place. From the welcome reception, to the breakfast bag we received (we checked out pre-dawn), everything left me happy! Most shops close at 5pm, which is a pity for guests. I... More

It was snowing when we reached the village. Coupled with the X'mas muscial played in the background,it's simply magical. Love each and every corner in the village. It's X'mas whole year round! Especially love the setting in the Santa post office.

The cottage was quite large, with nice modern furnishing, enormous bathroom and sauna... Everything feels fresh (well, the place was built just a few years ago). A bunch of attractions nearby - huskies, snowmobiles, reindeers, ... and the home of Santa Claus, of course. The queue to meet the jolly fellow was just some 15 minutes - outside the holiday... More

Getting off the plane was a trying time as jetting off, all nice and cosy, the doors open and this immense chill becomes so apparent, but once off and into your correct winter wears, it becomes a distant memory. You are confronted whilst still at the airport by these enormous snow men and reindeer ice sculptures. The driving over the... More

Visited in 03 March. Great Norwegian flight from Helsinki and landed in middle of snowstorm. Met at Airport by staff member who took us right to our cabin. As others have said cabin is just awesome and extremely comfortable. TV location over the bed is a bit strange, but who wants to watch when there was so much to do... More
