A wonderful place to visit. A treasure trove of wonderful Christmas gifts. We went there to take our 2 year old son and ended up having more fun than he did. Great hand made gifts. A must see place to experience.

Princess operates 5 lodges in Alaska. The closest one is in Fairbanks. From the Fairbanks lodge it is a 20-30 minute ride to the Santa Claus House. Taxi is very expensive, no ride share (Uber, Lyft). I believe the S.C. House... More
