Santa Claus Holiday Village

Last updated: 17 December, 2022

Just 5 minutes from Rovaniemi airport, 10 minutes to downtown Rovaniemi – and a two-minute walk to SantaPark (the lair of the real Santa Claus) – are the perfect place to stay for anyone travelling to see Santa with the kids.

The family-friendly chalets are clean, simple and functional enough. Some have kitchenettes and a private sauna. But you’re really staying here for the activities on offer.

During the holiday season, children’s activities such as crafts, baking and sledding are organised each day at the on-site Gingerbread Club. Staff can also help arrange reindeer, husky and snowmobile safaris, while boats, bikes and fishing equipment can be rented on site.

The Ounasvaara ski centre, 2km away, offers downhill runs, a tobogganing trail, a kids’ run, three ski jumps and over 60 miles of excellent cross-country paths.
