Rooms are very nice and all them have equiped kitchens. Very important when traveling with kids. It´s nice to have Santa Claus everyday by the hotel reception, my kids loved it. Staff is also very nice. However, breakfast could be improved. If you are traveling with kids, make sure to buy all that is necessary in town, since there is... More

We spent one night here. We liked the cabin very much, especially the sauna and the christmas decoration. Also convenient to have walking distance to mery santa! The breakfast was good. The Ohly thing we wondered absolut was that the roads to the cabins were not paved, 4wd recommended

Great landscapes on the way from Rovaniemi city center, especially when you go on foot. In autumn the forest is beautiful painted and you have a chance to meet reindeers near the arctic circle. The village is rounded by forest, so you can enjoy exploring it. Souvenir shop has a wide range of gifts,.Cafe has free Wi-Fi hotspot with very... More

I stayed three nights in the lovely cottages that had their own sauna and minikitchen. I used the sauna every evening. The cottage was cosy and had a Lappish vibe in them. There were good trails in the forest were you could go running without stress getting lost.

What a lovely place, snow father Xmas and visit the arctic circle. A must for people with young kids, ours haven't stopped talking about this place all year. The Elves make excellent guides. I visited the village on a guided tour which also did a trip to Arctic Zoo...both needed more time to experience the sights. I would recommend taking... More

We visited last October during off season and our stay with our adult children was fabulous! Everyone was extremely friendly and went out of their way to make our stay such a wonderful experience. We were a little spoiled I think because we pretty much had the place to ourselves since it was just before the peak season begun. We... More

This is a great place to stay. Everything is Santa orientated and we had loads of fun. Chalets were beautiful and well equipped. You even get a Christmas tree on the porch! Clean and modern with an easy to use sauna included. Breakfast was included which was nice. The staff, including Santa were so friendly and helpful, it was a... More

We had the fortune of staying here for four days in June. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, suggesting different activities to do around town. The visit from Santa was the highlight of our stay, our children were on awe. Even though there are more activities to do during the winter months, there is still enough activities to keep... More

I recommended this hotel for several reasons... nevertheless you need a car if you want to travel around this place, 10 km away from Rovaniemi, but close to airport. Reception (Saara, etc.) has the more kind girls to explain you everything, and they will help you to resolve any problem. You have a huge shop with very interesting prices, even... More

Wonderful place to visit in the snow. Stayed here for one night in April and it snowed! Warm cosy cabins, comfortable bed, great facilities, good food, lovely people, awesome experience. The reindeer ride and the sausage cooking and Christmas beverage afterwards were fantastic.
