I was very excited to visit SantaClaus village, but disappointed. They told us to come back at 3pm for the photo, but when we go back 3pm, we must line up again for almost 1h. Why tell us come back at 3pm then?? The meeting with Santa was only 2min. He say hello!, photo, bye bye.

We arrived by car, and couldn't find a public carpark, so parked near the hotel side. There was a lot of building work going on, which was confusing for the kids, who expect some idyllic hideaway I think. We found the post office first and enjoyed writing postcards home, and then walked across the courtyard to find the big man.... More

The visit to santa's village was amazing, we went on reindeer rides and photo's with the man himself, it was about -18 but it felt more like a winter's day in Melbourne. This would be one place I would strongly recommend as its a once in a life time to do.

The village is the most horrible experience we could do. Everything is fake, too commercial and made in very low quality. Crowded and no magic at all.

I knew the existence of this place through a travel tv program and since then it is on my travel checklist and I am excited that I have managed to check that off this year. There is nothing much to do other than sending a postcard or letter to people all around the world with stamp costing 1.3 euro and... More
