Went there to buy/send postcards from Santa to the grandkids with a North pole postmark. The Clauses were on holiday the day we were there. The shopping was good. The salespeople were very helpful and nice.

Princess operates 5 lodges in Alaska. The closest one is in Fairbanks. From the Fairbanks lodge it is a 20-30 minute ride to the Santa Claus House. Taxi is very expensive, no ride share (Uber, Lyft). I believe the S.C. House... More
