Yes, it's cheesy, yes it's commercial, yes it's €30 for a photo. BUT and it's a big but your kids will love it and you get to meet the REAL Santa, not your shopping centre wan-a-bees, but the real deal! So would I go again.... In a heart beat. Christmas, 365 days a year, with Elves and Reindeer and the... More

We went on a Thursday, in December at about 11 am. There was a large group of tourists but other than that, the line was pretty short and moved fairly quickly. Santa was absolutely lovely, very kind and patient, just as one would hope Santa would be. I loved our pictures and the video of the experience. The gift shop... More

We've gone to Rovaniemi twice now over the years and visiting Santa in his office is always the first thing we've done. The kids are so excited to visit him and it really is a very pleasant visit with the big guy. It doesn't feel rushed and the conversation flows effortlessly. Its a life time memory and the setting is... More

Visiting Santa Claus Office and meeting Santa himself is like a childhood dream come true...even though I am now an adult. Its a magical feeling.

You get to see the Santa for 5 min, just to take a photo that will cost you 30/40 eur. It is 100% commercial and they're have put zero effort into trying to hide the fact. Not much else to do there but shop for stuff you don't need.

It was such a lovely experience to meet Santa, he was so interested in the letters the children brought with them. You can go a on reindeer sleigh ride, have a lovely lunch in the restaurant, shop up a storm at the many gift shops and post letters from the post office.
