  • The surrounding landscape is beautiful, all white, features huts, reindeer ... Too bad it's too fake, designed for the sole purpose of earning anywhere you turn. By the way I perceived exploitation of reindeer and sled dogs (they say they are caged and freed when someone pays for putting yourself). In short

  • Finally today, after years and years that I nominate this elusive Santa Claus village in Lapland, I went there. And ... disappointment. I regret to have gone because I finished picture it. Let's say that reading the reviews I was not expecting anything more than what I saw. Santa nice paciocco sitting on his throne, would you not take a picture with him that he hasn't even made the effort to raise your arms from the Chair's armrest x hug or something do something? Of course not! Then after exactly 5 minutes after we parked the car I had already spent €25. Goes well let's move on ... the height of 300 m at extortionate prices for apotheosis by km pulled by poor reindeer, drunk from continuing to turn around the trees. Arctic Circle line if it wasn't for the small group of Japanese stop to photograph it manco saw him. Small shops and Santa Claus Office filled with cincaglierie but nice to turn and look around. But the piece with the shops in a long dreary corridor left me an anguish ... well I mean it seems ugly to say not to go there because it's still santa claus home the original but an hour or so and then walk. ...

  • 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!
  • Awesome place.. March was great time of year to visit this place. Guess there's a child in everyone which springs out in such majestic places. Had plenty options for activities, foods, shopping, etc. You can never have enough of it.
  • Really magical place! Our 6 year old son had a blast here and we took him to the Snowman Park here the next day to sled and ice skate. Lots of places to shop and eat. The lights and decorations are really beautiful!
  • Great place to visit all yar around! Other than Santa this is your go-to place for Lapland and Xmas things, be it souvenirs or just fan stuff. Last time I visited, it was off-season and even Santa was not at all busy. Me and my 4-year-old went just to get a glimpse of him. Instead, we ended up having a good conversation with him. Thank you, Santa! See you on Christmas!
  • 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
