  • Heard of this place a decided to take a look. We got to meet the big fella himself and I got very excited even as an adult!! Well worth a look  more »
  • We went because it was a must. Kids would have got more out of it than we did but no regrets. Great if you are after souvenirs.  more »
  • Excellent Santa Claus experience. Added bonus was being able to post letters home from the special post office on site! Also seeing the delineation of the Arctic Circle. However, we found a number of ...  more »

  • Overall a great little place. I loved the aesthetics and overall atmosphere especially walking up inside to meet Santa. There are 4 major things to do here. Meet Santa, go for a reindeer ride, send a letter and go shopping. Actually shops take up most of the space. I love how meeting Santa is free. You do have the option to buy the video and pictures at the end but you're not forced too. I wish there were fewer stores and more activities even if they're paid like the reindeer ride. If you go when there are few people you could spend less than hour having done everything. However still worth the visit.
  • Best place in the world to experience Christmas spirit, and to meet the actual Santa claus. Be aware you can not take pictures or video of Santa, but you can purchase it from the gift shop for quite steep price. Plenty of interesting gift shops with unique northern produce.
  • Seemed very touristy. Never planned on making any purchases​ but found something perfect. Cute photo stop.
  • An extra bonus to visit when in Lapland. Probably more exciting to those with children in tow. We enjoyed a fun Reindeer sleigh ride, tucked in snug under a skin while it snowed on us. We learned lot about reindeer chatting to the driver. we chose a 1000m ride and weren't disappointed. You can go in and visit Santa for a photo and a chat. Be warned there is often quite a queue so you need to use patience. We didn't bother. Plenty of warm shops with Arctic Circle memorabilia available. Cafe's and restaurants to feed the masses. Husky sleigh rides available too. Stand on the Arctic circle line for a photo and play in the snow if you please.
  • Santa Claus Village is one of the best place in the world for children and youth people. You can meet with Santa and take picture with him. We have visited here during 28th Dec, 2016 during our Lapland tour. You should take Artatic ocean passport stamp from here with only cost of 50 cent euro. You can buy some amazing 3D post card from here along with other souvenir. Highly Recommend!!!
