Santa Claus Village - Review

One of the most visited attraction in Rovaniemi – Santa’s official Hometown! Located approximately 8 kilometres from the City, it is an amusement park that lets visitors meet Santa Claus in his own office! Yes meet Santa Claus! Wow right? It also has Santa Claus post office where visitors get to buy gifts and souvenirs for the loved ones back home and send postcards. Amusement park also has various other shops that deal in selling local items. And icing on the cake is the chance to walk past the Arctic Circle line – cuts right through Santa Claus Village – a popular spot among the visitors to have their pictures clicked!

If a day at Santa Claus village isn’t enough, then you may opt to stay at the village. It has approximately 74 apartments divided between various packages. Book your accommodation in advance if planning to visit during peak season.

If you would like a change from regular accommodation and are feeling a bit adventurous, book in advance at Igloo Hotel – located in Santa Claus village. Built entirely from snow, the temperature in the room is maintained at sub-zero. And no, you will not freeze to death – the hotel provides for a sleeping bag designed to keep your body temperature at the required level. So just relax and enjoy a night at the Igloo hotel. And it doesn’t stop here – you will be rewarded for staying at Igloos with an Arctic Night Survival –Certificate along with delicious breakfast.

To keep children engaged and learn more about Santa, Village organizes a club – Gingerbread Club – 1st December to 10th January – and includes activities like arts, crafts, baking, skiing and much more!

  • Picture perfect, as a scene from a fantasy. Being in the Arctic circle is a thrill! You can meet Santa Claus (who is of course adept in greeting you in your language), take a reindeer ride, send your loved ones postcards and messages from Santa and so on. The souvenirs and purchases are a tad expensive but a really unique experience.

  • It's more for children but still in a way a tourist trap. Some souvenir shops and restaurants. "Ordinary" tourists might like it but really nothing special. The nature around is much more interesting, at least for people like me. Just had a tasty burger and a beer there while being on a bike trip.

  • Went to see Santa’s village in May and had an okay experience. The reindeers were closed and so were the huskies so that was quite disappointing. So it’s basically just an expensive meet and greet with Santa if you want to get photos. Santa was lovely though and so were the staff. However there isn’t much else to do when nothing is open except look in the various souvenir shops.

  • The dream of every person in the world: get to Santa's house! I went there in March, not exactly the proper period but it was wonderful, too! There are many shops in which you can find every kind of souvenir. Santa is then waiting for your visit in the main building of the village, together with his Team! Do not forget that in the village you can also cross the Arctic Circle! The most amazing place, according to me, is the post office in which you will find thousands of mails coming from all around the world..just like in a Christmas dream! Well, enjoy!

  • I have order Santa Letter from the office and he website. However, two months past, I got no letters and no reply. I wrote to the office, no one answered. One Santa letter costs 8.5 euro. Is this the right attitude from a Santa Claus office? What a big liar! The track receipt didn’t work at all. The letter is printed, not hand-written. I just don’t know how and why it takes soooooo long for the staff to send it out! Now I ask refund. And still there is no reply as usual. Be careful when you purchase any Santa letters...
