So how do you explain to a child that Santa is now in this office, when you have just seen him in another building. We avoided the office as we had just visited Santa and didn’t really want to be offered more photos to buy

The Santa was half awake when we got there. He was friendly and so glad we took photo with him. Got an official stamp from the official Santa Claus Village. A must place to go when you go to Rovaniemi.

This is a magical place that makes every childhood bedtime stories come true. It's a wonderful place for children and adults who still have childlike innocence.

Thank you for your feedback! And you are absolutely right. Santa says that, if you are under 100 year old, you're still a child in here. :)

Hi, if you visit one of the "Real Santa" and you pay for it, you have a picture and certificate that you met the "Real" Santa.
