It's fun for kids to see 'where Santa lives', but that's it. You can take a picture with Santa (€35) sitting next to Santa with a plexiglass screen between you and Santa (thanks Covid).
The rest of Santas village is just a accumulation of souvenir shops and restaurants. Everything closes at 17:00 hours / 5 pm.

Christmas House is a Must Stop when you stay or visit Santa Clauss Village.

It is mainly the biggest Gifts & Shopping house but it also includes a small market to buy Snacks & Drinks and a Buffet Restaurant where you can stop for a while and enjoy a nice Team or Hot Chocolate of Lapland !

Nothing really surprising even if almost half of the shop is composed by every kind of Clothes.

It is situated just right to the entrance and is quite isolated on this side of the village.

We visited here last week during our son’s ski holiday. The shop was neat and well arranged. The workers there wear face mask and luckily there wasn’t that many visitors yet so we can still keep our distances.
I would say this is a regular souvenir shop, the price is reasonable for a souvenir shop. The lady who took care the cashier was really nice and we chatted a lot with her. She helped my wife chose the reindeer hide for our house decorations, pinpointed the price and quality differences.
Their service was exceptional for us. All the staff there including the Santa were exceptionally nice. The Santa took his time to chat with all the kids and the parents.
Definitely we will visit again if we come to Rovaniemi.

Greetings from Turku.

I thought this was the best part of Santa's village. The prices of some of the souvenirs seemed cheaper than other places at Santa's village and it was not as crowded with merchandise. There is a cafe to eat and you could meet Santa here. The queues were shorter than at Santa's office.

Super commercial , worst than Disney Land! Every is very VERY expensive for cheap stuff made in China. We found much better activities to do around . We went Ranua it was fantastic , we ice fishing, husky tour, snow mobile in the wild for very reasonable price . They also have a great zoo with polar bears. Honestly Santa village was the biggest mistake of our trip! All activities are crap and you feel like you are locked up in cage. Hope this review will be helpful and you won’t spend your money there

Please keep attention that just at the entrance of the village there is this house called "Christmas House" which shows signs inviting the families to go in for meeting Santa Claus. Be careful, it is only a shop and not the original one. They have inside a fake Santa Claus who takes pictures with you just for sale them. We fell into the trap and it was really disappointing not only for us but also for our kid. They completely spoiled the surprise, the expectations and the dream of a child.
Only then we realize that Santa's office was 200 meters away.
But our girl is 9 years old and we couldn't find a plausible excuse to get into the original one.
So we spent thousands of euros and crossed half of Europe to be scammed like that.
It is incredible that the village of Santa Claus allows such a situation.
Better to leave Santa and his village in the magical imagination of our children!

We were guest at the Santa Claus Holiday Village and enjoyed visiting Santa for free here at the Christmas House. As guest of the Holiday Village, we got a 10% discount inside of the Christmas House. We went on a Friday at about 09:44 and had no wait. There’s a little room to walk through that our kids enjoyed and then meet Santa. Santa was very friendly and did well with our 1 and 4 year old. He gave them both a few stickers which made them happy. We paid for the package and got 2 pictures, 2 certificates, and 3 postcards for €40. We forgot about asking if the 10% discount applies for the pictures, but we did remember to ask when we bought souvenirs inside the shop.

Overall we enjoyed our time and would recommend the visit.

We arrived to the Arctic Circle and Santa Claus Village 6pm to see that Santa has called it a day. Santa is only working from 9am to 5pm. Our kids were disappointed. We visited the really expensive souvenir shop (Christmas House). Commercial Christmas spirit lives here.

During our camper holiday in Scandinavia we also visited Rovaniemi, our holiday started and ended in that town.
We had 1 day left before flying back to the Netherlands and of course we visited this place.
We had been here before for 4 years ago, but we wanted to see it again.
We were wondering about the difference in 4 years, so many new buildings, cottages, shops a.s.o.
We also wondered about the visiters, hardly no childeren, only older adults or young couples with or without a baby.
It's nice to make some pictures, sending postcards to our grandchilderen and buying some presents.
The prices are high but it's the idea to buy it there.
Of course we made a picture at the Arctic Circle.
