The room was very comfortable and had we not recently been to remote Lapland in another lodge, we would have thought this was perfect! The village next door is very touristy (surprise!) but the kids had a ball and having Santa visit your room was worth paying for.

Place is amazing... As soon as you arrive the magic of Xmas stars to appear... Cottages are new, clean and really nice. The village is just a walk distance from the Santa Clause village (postal office, shops and restaurants) and close the main attractions of the area. Rovaniemi is 10 minutes driving and easy to reach. Anyway, breakfast was one... More

We really thought ourselves in Santa Claus's home. You do have enough space in the houses. You also have sauna here. Outside is freezing but inside is guite hot. You also have balcony. One negative thing is you can't eat or drink something after 16:00 instead of hotel's rest.

We stayed here when we visited the Santa claus Holiday village in Rovaniemi. It was a nice cosy little cabin with a sauna, a small kitchenette and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Definitely worth staying at if you want to spend the night after roaming around the village. There are lots of activities in the village... More

Santa Claus Holiday Village in the snow must be a glorious winter wonderland. It was still lovely in May. / I loved our little red cabin, the high ceilings, Finnish decor, and ALL the amenities. The kitchen was convenient and my husband loved our sauna. Our unit was exceptionally clean, with comfortable beds, and great WiFi connection. The reception staff... More

Arrived at the airport and picked up by village's transfer service. Only a few minutes away and great service. Upon arrival taken straight to cottage which is roomy enough and has a great bathroom with built in sauna (small but great addition). Kitchenette is very small but good enough for snacks and a quick cuppa with small fridge for perishables... More

Nice and spacious cottages with a private electric sauna in the bathroom next to the arctic circle and Santa's office (where the REAL Santa can be found, not next to the reception of this holiday village!)

The rooms were large and in duplex building arranged as a village. Climate control was good. They give you a sled to use to transport your luggage to your room. That sets the tone for the village. We were very happy to see the northern lights one of the four nights we were there; the green was truly magnificent. The... More
