I was visiting Rovaniemi and the weather turned poor so i decided to visit the Santa Village, I was surprised very well set up and fair prices. (The souvenirs are probably the best prices I have seen in Finland)

Took a small break here. Got some coffee and cheesecake from the restaurant next to the souvenirs shop. Also bought some cute souvenirs and postcards. Great place for families. Don't forget to check the Arctic circle line!

Nothing much to do except for the shops, due to the freezing cold, we did not want to stay outside. The shops were ok, the restaurants and cafes were good.

Even if you're not into Santa, and my wife and I are in our 60s, it was a fun hour having a one on one chat with Santa and looking around this Christmas wonderland. You can spend as little or as much as you want....More
