Santa Claus Village, Rovaniemi Reviews - Write a Review
Super overpriced souvenir shops. That is all you see. It is a business created over a traditional Santa belief. The experience is the same as going to a mall. The only good thing is the sign showing the pass to the Arctic Circle. If you are taking your family, prepare your wallet.
Brought here by friends and against my will. Meet and great with Santa. I mean, the 'real' Santa. Seems like they didn't even try to make you feel the magic, neither for a child probably, except for his ability to list all the cities next to your hometown. At 5.00 pm Santa checks his iPhone and gets off work, so you'd better be on time!
More of a shopping or commercial experience than a “theme park”, but we really enjoyed it. Reindeer to feed and even the trinkets in the store add up to a unique experience.
If you like a touristic approach to Santa Claus and lots of cheap souvenirs this is the place for you.
Could use a place for camping vehicles. Great place for all ages. Kind and helpful people.
