I think you could probably find a better overall experience
Nov 2021 • Family
The actual Father Christmas was really believable, looked the part and the accent definitely added to the magic.
But the experience as a whole was disappointing- the waiting area was quite small and could have been a lot more magical - just a few little extras would have gone a long way - we arrived at 10.30 and still had a good 40min wait. There wasn’t even a door blocking the queue from the Santa clause room just a rope so the kids could see what was happening. I think if I was to do it again I’d try booking one of the Santa tours into the forest.

Magical!

Entrance to meet Santa guides you through toy factory kind of path with lights and music very pleasant. On entrance we were offered bag for our jackets and hats to not heat up in line in all the layers. We came just in time before big amount of people came (around 12:30 pm). Santa was very nice the elves as well :) very happy with the visit!

Every child has the right to meet Santa!
Dec 2020 • Family
We loved meeting Santa and personally I appreciated it was free. Santa spoke to us for about 5 mins and was very kind. His assistant elf had chatted us up before we entered and found out our mothertongue and Santa surprised us speaking few sentences. If you want pics you have to pay, but you can decide afterwards.

Can be long queues to see santa
Nov 2020
Santa's office is good to see from the outside, especially when it is lit up at night. You can go in and see santa for free, but the queue can be long.

Visiting the Sant Claus Village and the office is a magical experience. Good for the kids but also brings back childhood memories for adults. Should go.

No queues during the epidemic!
Sep 2020
I visited the Santa Claus Office with my five years old daughter and she liked it a lot (the experience was very authentic). In the meeting room you can't take photos of your own, but you can purchase photos and videos of the meeting afterwards (quite expensive, though...). There is a transparent plastic sheet between Santa Claus and the guests, due to the virus. On the other hand, there are no queues now! We had to wait our turn only five minutes or so...

Summon your inner child

Well it is a must when in Lapland, really it is! Santa's office is fun, really well set up, fun the explore and free to visit. You can buy and post cards there as well.
The main attraction of course is meeting Santa and it really is pretty cool. Santa is great and takes a little time for a bit of a chat. Photos are taken and the visit is recorded as well. You can choose to buy these if you wish. We paid for the downloads and are really happy with them, very nice photos and the video is a nice touch.
Sure is it super touristy, but good fun and how often can one meet Santa in his office in Lapland? I had a ball, thanks Santa Claus!

very expensive and to touristic
Feb 2020
The whole village is just about selling tourists stuf from the giftshops. We had lunch at misses santa claus and the food was not good and the 'soup buffet' was very small. There was not a lot to choose from. The cost was way to high for what was offered..
