Came here as part of a day excursion. It's a great place for young children, to feel like they're at the real workshops. You can decorate cakes and visit Santa. Sadly though, the only thing for older kids and adults is the ice bar, which...More

Good to spend a few hours out of the biting cold. Same activities largely as Joulukka (although more here) so not necessary to do both. Children’s play area is great for some inside activity :)

We went to Santa Park during a heat wave in Finland. Since Santa Park is underground and air conditioned, it was perfect! The ice sculptures were wonderful and the cold room made it even better. We didn't know what to expect from the show but...More

I highly recommend Rovaniemi and the Santa Park if you want to experience a really cute tourist village, neat souvenirs, arctic circle, sledding, reindeer rides, snowmobile rides, and dog sled driving. Great for kids, parents, tweens and teens.More

We stayed in an air B&B in Rovaniemi. It was a perfect option. I would also recommend renting a car and driving yourself.
