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.

This was amazing, such a lovely experience. We were torn between doing a husky ride or reindeer and the trips were coming up at around £250 for one or the other. We went to Santa Claus Village and done both for less than that! We done the 1km (1000m) trail which went through the lovely snow filled forest. It probably took between 5 and 10 minutes which was plenty. They give you a reindeer blanket which was lovely.

We paid €29 for an adult and €15 for a child for the 1km one, there was a 400m one which was slightly cheaper. You could then buy a certificate for crossing the Arctic Circle which was €5 each or a reindeer driving licence for €4 each.

An amazing experience would definitely recommend and think it was just the right amount of time as I think any longer would have been cold and a bit much.

Great visit especially with kids. We thought at first that we would just be able to see the reindeers through a fence, but it was much more than that. We were able to feed the reindeers, pet them and just spend some time with them.

The lady who was taking care of the reindeers was very professional and you could sence how much she cared about the reindeers. She was very friendly and we were able to learn a lot about reindeers.

It was also nice to know that the reindeers only spend a few hours "at work" and they are taken every day back to their natural environment.

Highly recommend this place!

Perfect activity with kids even in October. We fed, played with and learned about reindeer life in Finland's north. We also rode a sleigh (on wheels) which was a huge hit!!! Highly recommend.

We were here in the summer and the caretaker was very friendly and provided lots of interesting information on reindeers and was very helpful answering any questions. For 5€ you can feed and touch the reindeer. Definitely recommended, especially with kids. Many thanks to the lady working the 20th of August!!!

We have only visited reindeer “office” to have the chance to pet the reindeer and take some photos. Kids loved it. Also the lady guide was very helpful.

The pick up was 25 minutes late, then we had to endure a whole 2 hours ordeal in a minibus to get the rest of the party, for some we had to wait 20 minutes at their pick up place. Once started, the guide (in very poor fi-nglish) tried to jolly up the ride out into the woods with some stats and infos around Rovaniemi and Finland, which was more inepth and insightful than a school research project of a 15 year old would have been. However, we still looked forward to the reindeer experience.... Once we got there, there was absolutely no explanation or interaction with the guides and the reindeers, so we sat into our sleigh and off we went. The ride was ok (I guess there is not much that can go wrong).
We have done a couple fo other tours during our time and this one was clearly the worst, in particular in particular disappointing when you think that you pay north of 500 EUR for a family.

We took a 35 minute, 3 km, 4 pm, ride in the dark into the forest, reindeer will pull you! You need to dress warmly for this ride in the winter. If you want to take lots of pictures, you’ll need a flash, or better to come back in the day. 3 km rides can be booked ahead and only twice a day.

The ride through the forest behind a reindeer was magical - it was a perfect day, clear and no wind and we were wrapped up warm in reindeer hides. It lasted about an hour and our 5 year old grandaughter throught it was great fun.

My family - 2 adults, a 4 year old, and a 1 year old- enjoyed our experience. There are 3 different lengths you can choose from, 400 meters, 1000 meters, and 3000 meters. We did the 1000m. It was €29 per adult, €23 for our 4 year old, and our 1 year old was free. We divided into two sleds that they attached together. I was in the front sled and could look back at the other reindeer which was neat. Each sled had a blanket to keep us warm. It was a very fun experience.
