Santa Claus Village

Santa Claus Village is located about 8 km north from Rovaniemi city center and 3 km north from Rovaniemi airport (road E75). It marks the spot where the Arctic Circle line runs around the globe, and it is where Santa Claus has his office.


Besides meeting Santa himself you can also visit his official post office, and send a postcard with a special Arctic Circle stamp. You can even choose to send the card for the next Christmas! There is an ever expanding variety of other attractions in the vicinity, such as huskies and reindeers, an ice hotel, glass igloos, snowmobiles, and a variety of accommodations and restaurants.

Souvenir shops in the area sell world famous Finnish design (Marimekko, Iittala, Marttiini, Aarikka and others), as well as Sami handicrafts, local delicacies and souvenirs made out of reindeer antler and fur. Santa Claus Village is open every day of the year.
