  • We had high hopes, even if it would have been a tourist trap. There was nothing but a store and within the store, a coffee bar. Not worth the stop - really.  more »
  • On transit through Alaska take exit North Pole. The village itself is not much. But then a visit to the home of Father Christmas. What so just a great store turned out to be. When we were there (Monday) to see no Santa. So very much fun Christmas stuff and Christmas clothing ... If you go away without buying anything are you a "strong" person!

  • I thought this attraction was going to be a replica of Santa's house and workshop with elves, toys etc. It was far from it! Sadly, it is just a gift/souvenir store. It has lots of nice items but not w...  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.
