The hosts were perfect, from meeting us at the airport, to helping with any information. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Lots to see and do to keep the children occupied in around the village, they loved the snowmobiles where they can actually drive themselves, slides and free sledges. We had two cabins togtether for family of five. Good... More

Stayed there for two nights in December. The cabins were very clean and modern. One double bed, a sofa bed, a sauna, and a kitchenette. The kitchenette was quite small and it was cramped. Do not recommend for cooking/ All cabins have a personal parking lot so that was very convenient. I recommend for those who do not rent a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in February on our way further north. The bungalows are nicely decorated, clean, cosy and warm. We booked the entire bungalow (so 2 rooms) for the four of us and that was certainly spacious enough. If you have to spend the night with four people in one room and use the bed and the... More

My partner and I stayed here for three nights, and it was well worth the money spent. The cottages are clean and spacious, and it was great to have a kitchenette as well. I had been excited about staying here for months, but my boyfriend was not. However, we both thoroughly enjoying our time here, and cannot stop telling people... More

I am a wholly deaf solo traveller. During March 2013, I stayed at the Santa Claus Holiday Village, Napapiiri near Rovaniemi for 4 nights. I arrived in Rovaniemi Airport (5 minutes’ journey by minibus to SCHV) and I met the friendly Santa Claus Holiday Village minibus driver before he drove me directly to my cabin, because the reception was closed...

Service was pretty good throughout the stay, with even Santa Claus popping by to say hi... The holiday cabins were quaint and self-contained, complete with a little kitchen. The place is almost picture-perfect and even adults will have fun sending postcards from the post office and combing through the christmasy place. If there is something lacking, it got to be...

This holiday village is about 5minutes from Rovaniemi airport, the best part of the village accomodation is an individual cottage with own sauna room attached. Hotel reception and the suvenior shop is at the same place so it took us a little bit longer than expected to check in but the room was really cozy with small kitchenette. Our kids... More
