Maybe it was because of visiting Santa Claus Village during May when if was very much out of the season, but this place is the most interesting one in the whole park for me, meaning that you can still do something here even in summer.
You can send a Christmas postcard to your friends the whole year, including sending the postcard that will be delivered during the next Christmas. Or you can pay 8 Euro and send a letter from Santa to you or someone that you know, in a language that you choose from the offered ones.
The ladies working at this place were super friendly.

A good selection of postcards and souvenirs, helpful staff, but - as everywhere - very very crowded in December. If you come during that period and you can, write postcards before (buy them in the city for example), so you can just mail them there for the stamp or the delayed delivery option.

Since 1985, Santa Claus has received 15 million letters from 198 countries, which makes Santa Claus Main Post Office a must on any visit to Santa Claus Village. The merry postal elves are happy to serve customers all year round in their headquarters, which is a real post office operated by Posti, Finland’s national postal service. Every letter sent from here is addressed from Santa and gets a special Arctic Circle postmark not available anywhere else. The highlight is that if you send a postcard on 18th January, it will be received only on 18th December as a special gift for Christmas. We had a small deal of shopping there – just a handful of cards and souvenirs. And we send many cards to our friends around the world. The cards are available from 2EUR.

The Tourism Information Desk is located right above the Post Office. We went there and sealed our passports for crossing the Arctic Circle. It is not at all mandatory, but that would be a seal that would mark our journey officially forever.

You get to choose and buy your postcards and stamps, to post to yourself either on the day or during Christmas time ... the choice it yours ... this is great, a novel idea

Can send a letter or post card in advance or for Christmas celebration with special arrangements in the post office.

The stamp from this post office is the only one can get from here.

A disgraceful post office. It's a post office that rips off tourists with the excuse of sending mail, but never delivers the mail to the countries. A disgraceful institution of Finland. They do not record mail. You cannot track your cards because they do not record them. Even if something that is not followed reaches its destination, it is not pleasant. I bought 20 cards and not a single one arrived. They just rip off tourists and sell cards. A place I will never recommend to anyone. I contacted the authorities, they are all arrogant and do not accept responsibility. Terrible service. I advise those visiting not to shop.

A must do if you go to Santa. You can send cards here immediately or next Christmas. They also sell souvenirs there. There is a wall with mail from all over the world and letters written for Santa, some of which are moving.
