This totally ruined Christmas for my 7 year old. We went all the way to Lapland to see the real santa, this one said three words to us, I specifically asked the “elf” to ask Santa to call my son by his name so he...More

A must if in Lapland! It is a once in a lifetime experience, a total deja vu of emotions from Christmas mornings as a child. Best time to visit is probably early December as it wont be as packed with other tourists

Our family visit November 2018 was joyful. Our family found the real Santa at Holiday Village. What a charming, gentle, interested Santa Our grandchildren, ages 7 & 8 are sure this was the REAL Santa not just one of his helpers.

Oh my goodness! You HAVE to visit Joulupukki (Santa Claus) when you come to Santa's Village. He was very personable and you got to spend private time with him.....not a long line of people watching for you to finish so they can have their turn....More

Beautiful first impressions with the buildings, snow and lighting; exactly as you would imagine. Santa was talkative and looked as you would expect. BUT sadly it felt like a money making machine. Wasn’t cheap to visit Santa anyway, but then to have to pay €35...More

We were disappointed after visiting Santa's Post Office in the Santa Village. We expected some scenes inside, which cute and belongs to the miraculous ambiance of childrens imagination. Instead of our expectation, we visited another commercial souvenier shop. I think, I told everything about it...

Santa Claus is very nice and talkative! The queue was a bit long but with a bit of waiting (not more than 30 min) we could see Santa. Thank you!

This was by far the busiest attraction on our trip. However, like everywhere else, the whole experience was organised to perfection and stress was avoided. There is a large tabled area for children and adults alike to sit and write they're letters to Santa. There...More

Hey Cath, no there is no video link available. (At least there wasn't when we were there, and I'm pretty sure no other time either.) They do upload photos and videos so you can retrieve them electronically if you want, but... More
