Good for young children. It is free to walk around but all the activities you have to pay for. Quite a few places to eat. There is tubing for $25 (I think) for a whole day, no other ticket options are available.

Certainly it feels like walking into a postcard. Beautiful and magical village and meeting Santa who speaks a lot of languages was quite fun.

Meet Santa! Place where you have to go if you visit Rovaniemi. SantaClaus is there every day. Find best souveniers, send a letter from santa’s postoffice. Eat well in many restaurants. But don’t hurry, because it takes time to get know this place

I enjoyed this place very much as it had such a Christmassy atmosphere. Everything was so beautiful covered in snow, and there was so much to see and shop. The Christmas lights put up were very pretty, and we enjoyed the reindeer sleigh ride too....More

It is a very beautiful, wonderful and amazing place to visit. It is very convenience to take bus No 8 or Santa Express (cost 3.5Euro, one way) from city center (25 minutes). Meeting the Santa in the Santa Claus office surely is a must and...More

We went with an Aussie tour group in Dec 2018. I was super excited to go there as I am a huge Christmas fan. I found the place a bit disappointing and very commercialized. The photo with Santa was rushed and cost a lot of...More
