A little commercial park, nothing else. There is NOTHING to visit. 90% of the village are souvenirs shops. Even the post center or santa's desk was a little shop. The place is dark, sad and awkward. The fairy and magic of christmas has been forgotten...More

It's a winter place for sure. When you visit that place, walk past the arctic circle but the weather is 32 degrees celcius, it's not much fun of travelling around. There were few tourists wandering and buying souvenirs. The post office was the most crowded...More

I met him. He is real. His beard is real and glorious. I also met his reindeers, they are also real. Very inexpensive to feed/meet the reindeer, only 5€. I went in summer and it was incredible regardless.

You dont have to pay to see Santa but they wont allow you to take your own picture. if i remember correctly, its 15euro per photo if you want hardcopy. for soft copy including the video was about 40euro or so.
