If you have children - so go to meet Santa. Santa looks and speak very intelligent. And if you do not want to buy picture with him - you meet him for free.. But u are not permitted to do your own pictures.

When is the last time you wrote a postcard to family or friends? Writing a postcard, get a special stamp of Santa Claus and mail your greetings from Finland back home!

The office is located in the heart of Santa Claus Village. We roamed around the souvenir stores for abit before moving up to level 2 to meet Santa. You can meet the Santa for free as you are not obliged to purchase the photo n video taken. But I was overwhelmed after meeting Santa(he interacted with us) and so we... More

My wife and I wanted to meet Santa Claus and it was a very nice experience, because the way the village has been built in exactly how you would picture it in the Santa Claus movies, but there are many attractions and good spots to take pictures. It has many sports activities, eg snowmobile rides, sleighs and children would not... More

I think is the best place in Santa's village. Is full of people all the time, but you can buy and send postcard to your family/friends. The prices vary from 1-6€ per postcard but there are lots of them to choose. And there are also another souvenirs that you can buy. The stamps are less than 2€ for international so... More

Just a tourist spot with plenty of souvenir shops and some activities for the kids. Worth a stop just to say you have been there.

We're not children anymore, but we also got very excited to visit the 'real' Santa Claus and have some official photos with one of them :) You can have the video of meeting Santa, along with the photos you choose electronically. A bit overpriced, but worth it, I must say, as it's a once in a lifetime experience for sure... More

I was very excited to visit SantaClaus village, but disappointed. They told us to come back at 3pm for the photo, but when we go back 3pm, we must line up again for almost 1h. Why tell us come back at 3pm then?? The meeting with Santa was only 2min. He say hello!, photo, bye bye.
