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.

    Our Canterbury travel guide arranged for us to have a short shopping stop here before our flight home from Rovenimi airport. Because we had seen the REAL Santa in his home, we were advised to give the large red building on the right a very wide berth as they advertised a chance to meet a certain person!!! . But that wasn't a problem as there was lots of tourist shops in the Arctic village, they all sold pretty much the same things. But because the place we had stayed had been so remote we hadn't managed to buy any Christmas mementos . At the village there was a good choice of Xmas decor, and obviously lots of soft toys. But we also had the chance to post Xmas cards back to the UK with the Arctic circle postmark direct from the North Pole post office. I had taken cards with us ready just for this..
    We only had an hour there, I would have liked a little longer, but we cut it fine for our flight home. The airport is only minutes away. It was lovely to finish off the perfect holiday here, and nothing was ridiculously priced, even for a captive audience

    90 year old knives house…One of the few buildings spared during the second world war. Take a look at the mini museum of old knives and pick souvenirs to bring back.

    One of the main shopping centres in Rovaniemi, and the name translates as "Northern Lights"! Really useful hub for our trip, with the K-Mart, decent restaurant range, clothing shops that have useful items for your excursions. Well worth the visit while you're in the town!

    A decent place to explore while you're in Rovaniemi. Restaurants and clothes shops, as well as a cinema and kids play area. We stopped for some lunch at the waffle place!

    The gallery, hosted by the Artists' Association of Lapland , offers temporary exhibitions of contemporary art.
    The gallery has also Art Lending Service. It is possible to rent art
    for your home or work office.
    The staff, working in the gallery, was extreamly friendly and helpful.

    I visited Rovaniemi last week and this shop was a gemstone. It was very unique, different from the other souvenir shops. Most items were handmade there and we could also see the artist working. Everything was of fantastic quality and for a good price. It was especially cool to see things made from reindeer antlers. I highly recommend coming to this shop and experiencing a little bit of history!

    In this marketplace, you will see the historic local train called Lättähattu. It is now Pub Old Lättis.

    On our visit, there was live music and a day dance happening for senior citizens. We didn't see any stalls selling the products you will usually find on Finnish marketplaces.

    It was a quick visit for us.

    We booked this hoping it might be a mildly interesting way to spend a couple of hours, since we had free time - but our time with Irene and Ari turned out to be the highlight of the entire trip to Finland! We loved seeing the Northern Lights, and dogsledding, and our stay (at Apukka Resort) - but truly, this is the experience I have the most photos of, have told the most stories about, and would most encourage people to seek out. I know that sounds over-the-top, but it's the simple truth.

    You learn so much from the most delightful and charming hosts - who don't brag about it, but whom you come to realize are truly recognized artists, not just folksy crafters. They give a fascinating window into what life was like for the Sami people, and what it's like even today - the wisdom behind the traditional artisan work, and how and why they are keeping it alive.

    Our group was six adults, and we hung on every word in the different rooms of their workshop, and all had such fun trying our own hand at a craft - even the least artistically inclined among us. Then, Irene and Ari brought us next door into their beautifully cozy home and treated us to drinks and snacks. We all felt entirely welcome and like a group of longtime friends, not strangers on an excursion.

    From seniors to adults to children, this is my top recommendation for Rovaniemi. I could have stayed here for a week and been fascinated the entire time.

    This shopping mall is just right next to Santa’s Official Office in Rovaniemi City Center , Lordi square. After visiting Santa, went to Hesburger to eat, 2nd level and the kids love it since there was also an indoor play area . This shopping mall has movie theatres , a pharmacy, a big parking area, clean new toilets, coffee shop, dental clinics , souvenir shops and much more . Highly recommended!

    Maybe it was because of visiting Santa Claus Village during May when if was very much out of the season, but this place is the most interesting one in the whole park for me, meaning that you can still do something here even in summer.
    You can send a Christmas postcard to your friends the whole year, including sending the postcard that will be delivered during the next Christmas. Or you can pay 8 Euro and send a letter from Santa to you or someone that you know, in a language that you choose from the offered ones.
    The ladies working at this place were super friendly.

    Our vacation in Finland Lapland from 18 to 23 Dec17 was indeed wonderful. We were lucky to have chosen Scandi Classics to arrange all the tours, cruise and safari for us. All activities and arrangement were on schedule as planned. We were also happy that all details listed in their website materialise and they didn't miss anything. All their arrangements, appointments and pick-ups were punctual and they really make sure we get whatever were specified and promised in their website. We also extended our stay in Helsinki with Scandic Classics from 23 to 26 Dec. We indeed had a very enjoyable and memorable vacation in Finland Lapland. We were happy that Scandi Classics made it possible for us, 5. Good job, Scandic Classics !

    I went to SusiVilla, and to meet Annika who is the brains behind it. The idea of a handicraft workshop and knitting is a very new and fresh idea in Rovaniemi. She organizes different kind of workshops where you can actually make your beanies and neck warmers from a very high-quality materials. You can tell by her experience with customers and how she handles the guiding etc, that she is a pro in her business.

    This is a ''different'' tourist attraction in Rovaniemi, and its worth checking out!
