We travelled 260km down to the Arctic Circle (Santa Claus Village) from Saariselka in the north. A complete change of ambience from the wilderness to a very touristy village with lots of shops. Great shopping of lapland souvenirs here. Nice experience at Santa's Post Office.

Terribly touristy. Lots of overpriced shops and buss loads of tourists. Post office is really the only reason to visit and the obligatory picture straddling the arctic circle.

Cool place. They've got a nice post office where you can post your cards at any time of the year and it will arrive just before Christmas. The scenario is amazing and you can also see the Arctic Circle line going thru. Ohh, and why...More
