Santa Claus Village, Rovaniemi Reviews
This place is Christmas all year round. We visited in January. Everywhere was covered in snow and it was also snowing whilst there. You can meet Santa and have your picture taken. Your option is 1 print of your choice or for extra you can download all pictures and a video. Prices reasonable. Visit the official Post Office of Santa and send a postcard to whoever you want. Your option is to post immediately or they hold until just before Christmas and send. Lots of souvenir shop. A recently opened hotel with cabins so you can stay on site if you want. An Ice bar and several restaurants. You can also stand astride the Arctic Circle. Prices of goods are a bit higher than in local shops. The kids (and I suspect a few adults too) will love it
Lots to do and see but all of it is hugely commercialised. 40 euros for a digital photo of you sat down with Santa Claus is a bit steep. I thought the post office was a great place, here you can post letters to arrive home around Christmas time. All in all its a must do but be prepared to spend plenty of euros.
The Village itself was and is very beautiful an family friendly. Your kids will have good time there. My problem is that this year Santa Claus Village was not ready for this amount of people, people did stand in line to Santa up to 2 hours, that is not acceptable. Please make some changes for next year.
really touristy good if you have kids. no need to stay many day there 1 is more than enough. but if you really like Santa clause go meet him.
Get my arctic circle cert here! and you can send postcard back to your country or friends from this Santa Land. What a beautiful and lovely place. Is a must visit place. Enjoy reindeer slide, Husky ride, really fun and good experiences.
