Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, Finland was such a delight. Even in March it was snowing, lots of snow and Christmas music playing. It was a happy place to be. Enjoyed the shopping and staying in the onsite cabins. They were very nice with a sauna.

We stayed 2 nights in the village and received one of the brand new cabins. The room had more than enough space and even included a sauna. It also had a decent kitchenette for those who want to cook. On the other hand, the breakfast area/restaurant are in need of renewal and the breakfast itself offered only limited options. The...

Everything is glistening, and beautiful! Breath taking scenery; just like a child's fairytale! Many cafes, goods and souvenir shops. And of course the most important thing; a real life Santa Claus! Very recommended!

We stayed at the Santa Claus Holiday Village in March 2017 and had all in all a nice stay and were able to see the Northern Lights on our last night. The cabins are well kept, clean and the private sauna is of course great. The other amenities of the cabin are basic but good. The mattresses in our cabin...

Best accommodation for visit Santa Claus, but is too expensive and 4 year old children don't have free accommodation. Bungalows are big and spacious, sauna and toilet are great. Wi-Fi is very weak. Location is best possible. Airport shuttle is free. Breakfast is average. It’s possible to free rent a plastic sled at reception.

We stayed for a week in February, and were stunned by the beauty of the place and the way it was set out. Our room was comfortable, and the sauna was a most welcome convenience. The food was most adequate and the service was excellent.

We were pleased with the Santa clause village. The airport shuttles are very convenient. The cabins are modern and have everything you need. My down point is that as a family of 4 we were very cramped in the cabin. There was no where to put our suitcases as we were going on elsewhere after our stay we had 4...

Hello dear flick001dance. Thank you very much about your nice customer review. That`s nice to hear that overall you liked to stay here with us. We read all customer reviews very carefully and we have got many excellent tips. That`s quite true, cottage space is quite limited for 2 adults + 2 children and even more limited with 4 lugagges....
