Wide variety of things to do, from sled and reindeer rides, snow mobile rides, restaurants, a post office, and of course Santa. Entry to the Village is free, but most activities cost. Prices are a little high. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Cue for Santa was long (November), mostly adults. The queuing system could be improved. Chinese didn't respect... More

This was one of the activities on our tour. First we took photos with Santa Claus. This was a bit commercial but Santa was very friendly and definitely 7 feet tall! You can buy printed photos on the spot, 20 euros for an A5 print. Then we went for reindeer sleigh ride! The rise was 10 minutes long and loved... More

Look forward coming here but found this place full of souvenir shops and restaurants. There should be more themed playhouse like Disneyland rides. The real meaningful place will be the post office. And... Santa should stick to his "Ho Ho Ho!"

The general scenery was lovely. We went to Santa's Office to meet Santa. The Elf was more engaging than the Santa who didn't even ask my son what he wanted for Christmas. I felt we were rushed through the visit. For example, I really just wanted a photo of my son with Santa, not our entire family. It all was... More

We had loads of fun. You can cross the arctic circle officially. Shop for unique handmade pinecone souvenirs. Visit santa. Although be aware queques for this are comparitively long. You can experience a husky safari, reindeer safari which is great. Window shop around the place before commiting to impulse shopping as you may end uo getting a few great stores... More

Cabins were excellent. Well equipped and very comfortable for a family of 4. The microwave, and kitchenette were great and the added extra of having coffee sachets complimentary were an added bonus if you didn't feel like a trek and there was a percolator . Excellent location close to Santa. Great having a shop open from 8am-11pm. Staff were excellent... More

Crossing the arctic circle in a Christmassy atmosphere is very unique. Go early in the morning to avoid the busses with Japanese tourists. The stores all sell the same things and are very expensive.

Santa Claus village is a place that even adults will enjoy. There are many shops and also the Santa Post Office where you can send postcard to your friends and family.

Came here in November 2016. It was a very nice place to walk around and there were plenty of souvenir shops to stop in. A bit gimmicky and expensive for the Santa pictures but still nice. This place is a Christmas lover's best dream.

The village is so beautiful and lighted up for XMas! We love the place! Shops were lovely. Santa Claus can be found in two houses. One in the village main building and the other in the holiday village center. The Arctic Circle line is right in the middle of the village. The Santa Claus Post Office was not too crowded... More
