Traveling with young kids (2, 5 and 7 in our case) is not always easy... but our stay at Santa Claus Holiday Village proofs that it's worth it. Great helpful staff (special mention to Kati, but the whole team, and obviously Markus and Inga well deserve a big "thank you"). Nice packages where you can experience the best of Lapland... More

Normally I write about the hotel facility and environment in the review. This is the first time I write about the bed, as this is remarkably good that it leaves a really good remark on my memory. The beds in the holiday house is heavenly comfortable. It is so comfortable that I thought I was lying on the snowy mountain... More

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
