Take a holiday at Santa Claus Village with as many kids as you can. We went with 4 kids age under 9.
I think for one kid family it might be boring. So book 3 days if you have one or 2 kids. Upon arriving we were afraid of 8 days we booked.
It passed like second
Stay at S.C. Village Cabins and feel real Santa atmosphere. Rovaniemi is city like all other cities.
Airport is really 4 minutes from village.
Food is just under average and except 3 restaurants in Rovaniemi like Nili, do not expect much and do not even think about it.
On the other side, all prices are fair and there are no surprises. Taxi from Village is to Rovaniemi is 15 euro.
Cabins/ rooms are modest but absolutely ok for all possible expectations. If possible, book whole cabin instead of half.
We were there in Christmas period and it wasn’t cold at all. From 0 to -10. By some special socks and active underware for kids before arriving.
In case of very cold weather kids need multilayer clothing for playing outside for when and how much they want. We visited extreme sports shop before going to Lapland and it was clever.
Take addresses from family and kid’s friends stayed at home, spend at least 3 hours in Santa’s Post and send as many postcards as you can.
Arrange for Santa to come visit you privately and prepare kids for questions before he arrives.
Aurora Borealis, go for it. If you see it it is magical if you do not see it it is still a great adventure.
