Lot's of postcard selections to choose from. My kids enjoyed writting some letters and sent it to our cousin. Even the elf is super nice and very attentive to help with all of our needs.

This was a bit more Hollywood than we would have liked. Might be ok for families with kids. Very commercial.

Yes, it is very touristy. Yes there are plenty of places selling vast amounts of souvenirs. No, it's not cheap. But yes, Santa is here, and you know, they put on a good service here. It's fun with snow and ice everywhere, and as we were there a few days before Christmas, everything was tinged with excitement for our kids.... More

As part of Santa's Village there is his post office. Good for post cards and souvenirs. Mostly however it is to help you send Christmas cards and letters to loved ones at home. For a fee you can also arrange to have a letter sent just before Christmas. Good fun from Santa and his elves.

Meet santa at his office, chat with him, had a photo taken & it is quite pricey to buy the videos & photos. If you do not wish to spend the money, but since Lapland is the home of Santa Claus, you can still go ahead to visit Santa & had a chat with him, which is free of charge.

My kids rave about meeting the "real" Santa and there was something about this magical place that made it feel so very true! We visited in mid-January and it was busy, but not overwhelmingly so. We enjoyed our trip to Santa Claus office and village very much!

Our first stop at Rovaniemi was the Santa Claus Village and we visited Santa's office and met him as well, it was one of the most exciting moments of our life, I personally handed over the letters written by my kids to Santa and he accepted the same graciously, must visit place if you are there.

Cool place to visit, meet the man himself? And get your photo taken. Start very friendly and professional, nice shops with lots of gifts.

Versatile interesting place, it was quite crowded and instructions had to be explained over and over again to tourists, as info's were'nt either in english or easy to be seen. Service was friendly however.

Almost all people visit Rovaniemi because of Santa Claus Village, and taking photo with Santa seems to be a must-do. We went in first thing when it opens at 9am, so there was a line up, but in fact if go later e.g. 11am, there is no line and people maybe able to spend more time interacting with Santa. 30Euros...
