Really good experience. You can use this post office to send a personalized Xmas postcard to your family world over. And it reads "from Santa Claus"

Santa. Snow. Christmas lights. The wafting smell of warm cinnamon and mulled wine. And the opportunity of a lifetime to send a Christmas Card to friends and family from the North Pole. Enough said. Bucket list ticked and memories made. Incredible!

Crowded, but worth the visit. Unfortunately, not all the countries with children sending letters to Santa Claus were represented and this is awfully frustrating when have to explain it to the kids...

Must Visit here, if you are at Rovaniemi. Conveniently near an airport. Bit touristy, no photos allowed, you need to buy photo set (digital).

A cute place to send yourself a postcard with the arctic circle stamp mark on it. That’s about it! Staff friendly as always and nice photo opportunity in front of the fire.

You can get your passport stamped. I don’t know about a certificate. You can get in and out when you like. I don’t have info about the Thomson present.
