  • Very touristy and commercially happening, but if you are in Rovaniemi or come, you still want to see where and how Santa Claus lives then you have to take a look at Sancta Claus village. You can send a postcard with postmark from the Arctic Circle.

  • It was mostly just tourist shops, but I was also there out of season. The food options may bring it up a notch, when they are all functioning. The best experience I had there was the fun experience of petting the reindeer and just the Christmas festivities that permeated everything at all times.
  • In summer time the magic of this place is probably missing. A long time to go for Santa 🎅 100% touristic but not bad. Highlight is of course the marking of the polar circle
