Santa in July

I visited in July and was surprised how many tourists there were. It's a great activity any time of year. You walk through and meet Santa for a photo, though you don't have to buy.

Popped in here during our trip to Rovaniemi. .. How could we pass it by really! You can purchase from the many postcards and stamps and get them sent from Santa's official post office to a loved child or grandchild etc, either on that day or pre arranged for delivery at Christmas. Pretty cool idea!!!

Lots and lots of souvenir shops. We didn't stop to see Santa- although if you had children that would be the obvious thing to do. We did visit the huskies which had boundless energy so a little sad maybe to see them in cages. Also visited the reindeer, you were able to feed and pat them. Has to be visited... More

amidst the many souvenir and outlet stores, right on the Arctic Circle there is also a small hut to visit Santa in his own habitat. exciting for kids, dreamland for shopaholics.

the place is rather fairy-tale - an experience you definitely need to offer to your child while he believes in Santa! come at 4-5 p.m - no lines at all!

The Santa Claus Office is a not so exciting place. There is hardly anything to do except from meeting Santa Claus. The old guy was kind but we paid 40 euro per person for some pictures. I found it extremely expensive on a standalone and per value basis too. The only good thing is that you can post a postcard... More

I won't recommend anyone to go there if they don't mind skipping it.. it's just a post office which you can post some postcards to friends with quite high postal fees.

You can meet santa here, but we couldn't. When we went he was not available, so that was a bummer. But we met santa claus in the santa holiday village. So that was ok. Apart from that, this is just a bunch of shops and nothing special. We barely spent 10 mins here to get respite from the cold.
