Got back yesterday from an amazing time at the Santa Claus holiday village, having touched down at Rovaniemi Airport, we were at the village within half an hour so no long transfer at all, the village is literally 5 minutes drive and they pick you up from the airport free of charge. Once on our way we were driven right...

The village is close to the airport and is reached in less than 10 min with the transportation arranged by the resort free of charge. We were brought to our cabin, settled before checking in at the reception which was very thoughtful in the cold nights. There were many outdoor activities at a cost to choose from, like husky and...

We stayed at the property in a cabin. Well appointed, includes a sauna. Restaurant served excellent food and there are lots of shops and the hotel will assist you with planning local tours and excursions. Well worth the trip, especially with loved ones.

This a beutiful place in an idilic setting. There's lots to do but bring lots of cash. Breakfast is very basic. Double beds have 2 single quilts - a real annoyance. The wifi in our room was useless - so sending pictures home just wasn't going to happen. Luckily 3G signal was good in the area. Recommend snowman world -...

Just returned from 4 nights at Santa Claus Village and it met every expectation. You don't even have to take the kids to enjoy this wonderful place! We were met by Meena at the airport and whisked off to our cabin in the village. The cabin was perfect. Nice, cosy and warm due to the under floor heating. The sauna...

Santa Claus Holiday Village...what a magical and fantastic place to visit. For all of the children who are teetering on the edge of doubt, like our 8yo was, it's a must visit place. Santa Claus is an amazing man, polite, really friendly and he has a great way with the children, a real charismatic gentleman. Our two girls, aged 8...

We just came back from our trip. Love it, it's a low season now, so all our activities were pretty much private. Service is great, everything was on time, staff was very welcoming. We had a Superior Winter Wonderland package, filled with activities. Do not recommend to get any others on top - will be very tiring. Get an extra...
