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.

Absolutely love this! Be sure to stop by to mail out some post cards to your love one from the Official Santa Claus Office (from the North Pole). My family and friends definitely love the stamp on the post cards.

We visited Santa Claus Village in August. Line to Santa Claus was short, only about 10-15 minutes. Clearly the trip was more important to children but a memorable moment also to adults, at least to me it refreshed the old Christmas memory Santa Claus making me to sing a song. Oddly enough, most visitors were grown up children around 40... More

Again children were not disappointed to meet the real looking Santa at the Santa Claus Office. the way to Santa is interesting already for smaller kids and Santa himself sounds very trustful and charming. Fotoshooting costs 40 € but once in a lifetime at least it's worth of that. Very proffesional service.

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!
