Once inside the Santa Claus village, we decided to check if we can meet the Santa. And yes, we did. Found it a little strange to pay to meet Santa. Nevertheless, decided to go ahead. You can choose to get only the pictures or video...More

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. :)

Writing letters posting to and from Santa for anytime or Christmas time are great things to do for every child I enjoyed my trip

Really good experience. You can use this post office to send a personalized Xmas postcard to your family world over. And it reads "from Santa Claus"

Santa. Snow. Christmas lights. The wafting smell of warm cinnamon and mulled wine. And the opportunity of a lifetime to send a Christmas Card to friends and family from the North Pole. Enough said. Bucket list ticked and memories made. Incredible!

You can get your passport stamped. I don’t know about a certificate. You can get in and out when you like. I don’t have info about the Thomson present.
