  • tourist trap... although the layout of the village is pretty nice, and santa claus is here! other than that, you are better off NOT buying anything. other than the Main Post office which is pretty nice and get to have stamps issued from santa claus village. and near christmas time they do have an exclusive stamp inked on postcards!
  • Great atmosphere and lots of stores with different presents that you can buy and bring home. We were there in the offseason so it was quite empty and not many people were around.
  • Peacefull place to take a evening stroll. Lots of brand stores and services open. At the Post Office there's nice collection of the letter around the globe which are addressed to Santa himself.
  • Cute village, lots of souvenirs shops. However a bit overpriced sometimes. Better to see it during snow time
  • OK place to spend a couple of hours on. But after that you've seen and done almost everything unless you spend a lot of money on dog and reideer sledrides and similar. Othewise it's mostly a huge souvenier shop.
