This is the 2nd time to Rovaniemi what a magical place. Santa village, santa park, the huskies, the reindeer and the all inspiring aurora of your lucky enough to see. This time we also spent time at Ranua zoo which was great. The best part was the snow, everything so picturesque. Can't wait to return.

We stayed at another location , but staying on site looked a better option. It looked like the restaurants were a good option and snowmans world is well worth the entrance fee

We visited with our two children today and it reduced me to tears! We were totally underwhelmed by the poor Santa set up which seems to be the first "visit Santa here" you see as you enter the Village from the main road (turning right towards the holiday village). I can only describe it as the equivalent to a shoddy... More

This is such a magical place. Even for adults you cannot help but feel warmed when you arrive and start exploring.. the village is completely free to enter and you can take the number 8 bus from the centre.

Great for young kids...a bit cheesy for adults. If you want the full Christmas experience, its worth a quick trip but it is tourist attraction.

In Santa Claus Village, there's only 2 main hypes -meeting Santa and mailing postcards home. And we did both!!! i must agree with some comments that this place is overrated as there isnt much activities to do and the village is rather small. It is mainly packed with souvenir shops. But i would say it is still an experience for... More
