  • I used to live in Fairbanks long ago (there is no option in the drop down menu for the correct dates on Trip Advisor) and this place was about 20 minutes away. I don't recall there being any other rea...  more »
  • Santa was out the day we arrived. Luckily we had a good stand. Didn't know there were so many Christmas decorations, and got the address so we could get the personalised Christmas letters. My parents ...  more »
  • Not what we expected. The only activity was taking a photo sitting on Santa's lap. Note that Santa is not available on Mondays and Tuesdays. There were live reindeers and a reindeer demonstration whic...  more »

  • Santa Claus House made me feel like a kid again! There are tons of ornaments, locally made novelties, plush animals, clothing and even fudge! You can find a souvenir for anyone! They have reindeer too, but we visited just before Easter so the snow was already melting and the reindeer had shed their antlers. It was quite surreal to see kids having an Easter egg hunt at Santa's House!
  • A lovely store full of lots of very fun Christmas items. Many items are stamped, embroidered or painted with NORTH POLE AK, so it is a fun place to get a souvenir or some fudge. The folks were kind if a little aloof. BUT.. the marketing hype of "north pole' far exceeds the reality. It is just a souvenir store, nothing more.
  • Summer visit. The staff was very nice and helpful. The store was clean and mostly organized. Quite a bitmore expensive than i had anticipated for some things, but seemed to be of good quality.
  • We visited outside the tourist season but it was a great stop! Every staff member we spoke to was very pleasant, including the fudge shop where the lady made me an off menu coffee because I couldn't decide on what I wanted. The only word to describe this place was magical!
  • Unfortunately Santa wasn't there. Neither were his lil' helpers. Actually it looked really shady anyways. Well, we had a great time at the McDonalds next door and we found the movie "Christmas Vacation" at the Blockbuster Video next door. Cheers to the North Pole.
