Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

And the kids obviously loved the whole experience, especially since Santa was very patient even if he couldn't really communicate with our kids due to language issues.

Too much commercial and not so a Christmas Feeling. Only Santa is a great performer speaking several languages

Me and my wife had gone to Santa Claus village several times during our time in Rovaniemi. Everything is so beautiful and perfect in the village that everytime (day or night) that we were nearby we always decided to stop for some minutes or some hours.
Also please check that there is a live webcam there that you can interact with your family or friends.

Tourist trap 101, a gathering off all different shops and restaurants. 35€ to get a picture with Santa Claus. Trying to be an experience ... Yet it is not that bad.

A Must visit to this place for all ages. Fairy- tale experience. We can personally meet Santa Claus and buy the picture of the meet. We can cross Artic Circle and get a certificate for the same.

We didn't really go to Rovaniemi to see Santa, but I suppose it's a must-do when you're here. Truth is, the Office of Santa is really nice. This was March, so we didn't have to bear a very long queue, but prepare yourself if you go Christmas time!

The Santa Claus Village is the best and major tourist spot in Lapland – Santa’s own hometown!
It is almost impossible not to cross the Arctic Circle in Rovaniemi. The Arctic Circle runs through the Santa Claus Village, located eight kilometres north of the city centre, where it is clearly marked. Santa Claus Village in Lapland is a popular place to cross the Arctic Circle: here the line is marked, and you can even get a certificate confirming the feat. At that moment, I felt I was the luckiest man in the world.

We first stepped into the Santa Claus Office. The ambience was just fantastic and a real fairy-tale-like experience. We were ushered in by Santa’s hard-working and beautifully cute helpers, the elves. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw Santa seated inside on a wooden chair amidst a lot of gifts with his big fat belly resting on his lap! He is around 6.5F tall with a long real looking beard. He greeted us and gave us our seat. And had a little chit chat about the Xmas and arctic history. However, photos and videos are prohibited inside. For 45 Euros, we all got one photo each to cherish as a memoir for a lifetime.

Ha ha ha haaaaa.....i opted to wait and get the video of my visit to Santa,instead of photos! And oh boy,i was bursting with gleee....ha ha ha
Yeah,am a grown up,and i was doing the Santa thing for the first time! Ha ha
Its a warm and homely place...too bad these covid restrictions meant i cant sit on his lap or even sit very close for a close up photo,since he has to stay safe,theres a glass divider between Santa and his guests!

But was still quite....whats the word??
We chatted a bit,laughed and teased...like old budys(ok,yeah,i know,its a job,but hey,he perfected his Santa role!!

Yeah,i would def go there again..
If in Finland,please make it a point to visit Rovaniemi and go visit Santa-am sure his home is open all year round,but busier during Christmas season!
Dare not miss it
