It was like jumping into a Christmas fairytale. Meeting a real Santa makes you feel like a 5 year old no matter of your real age. And like that was not exciting enough I met Rudolf, got to feed him and pet him and take a selfie :) If you still have a kid inside of you this is the... More

Meeting Santa was this unreal experience. We knew we wouldn't get the over priced video with Santa and yet we had too. It was that magical. That man in there is pure love. His elves at the post office who is write back to all the little children in the world were adorable. The artic circle, being able to stand... More

My whole reason for driving from Helsinki was to cross the Arctic Circle. It might have been better not to do it on a foggy day in October. I think the village definitely needs snow to set it off. The line defining the Arctic Circle was clear and there was plenty of it to go around the day I was... More

I enjoyed the visit that I made to Santa Claus! The queues to take a pictre with Santa was huge, but it's worth! He was very kind! I dind't like the facts that all the things are opportunity to make money. It's a big business around the Christmas spirit! But beside that, I love the place and the reindeer travel... More

Let me say that Santa's Village is a must see stop if you make the trek to Rovaniemi ... for how could you go to Santa's home town and not see the man himself? That being said, Santa's village runs dangerously close to being a road side stop - something like the largest ball of string here in the States... More

Took he 2 night trip with Canterbury in 2015. Amazing, especially if you have an 8 yr old, 6yr to 10 is probably perfect but I also brought my 18 yr old who loved it. Expensive trip but once in a lifetime. Canterbury were excellent, the organization, the day trips, and finding Santa was magical, yes even for the adults.... More
