Owner description: Santa Claus Main Post Office is the only official post office of Santa Claus. Here you can feel the Christmas spirit every day of the year and be served by the merry post office elves in several languages! A very special memory from the Arctic Circle is a unique letter from Santa Claus. You can also leave your Christmas cards and parcels with the elves every day of the year!

“The real post office of Santa!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

First stop was the “official” post office of Santa Clause. From here, you can post a card which will be stamped with the official and only stamp of Santa Clause and the North Pole, a novelty in itself. We saw the elves hard at work sorting letters, the countries boxes filled with letters from children all over the world and many people dedicated writing letters to Santa and home to family and friends. I of course had to send off my greetings to family, simply as a once in a lifetime souvenir and our little traveler helped me post them.

“My favourite part of the village”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I loved the fact that it was a working post office as well as the 'sorting office'. The look on my kids faces when they realised that this is where their letters to Santa went was brilliant! It made it all feel real. We very much enjoyed writing our postcards home too.

It was lovely to go and post a letter back to your kids from the Santa Post Office and receive the Lapland postal stamp. A little keepsake.

“Fun even for grownups”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

A charming place. Visit Santa and make a photo with him. Ask Santa to send a letter to your kids. Only one disappointment – instead of too many (and somewhat similar) souvenir shops, there could have been some attractions, like Elfs making crafts, etc.

“Got a photo with Santa”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

It was so nice to meet with Santa before his extremely busy schedule on Christmas Eve. Great place to catch some X-mas spirit, even if you're not very christmassy person.
