Tourist Information Center
“This is a major reason why people come to Rovaniemi, and you can almost walk there from our property (1 h walk), or 7 min by taxi (16 EUR). You can see Santa Claus 365 days a year, take photos with him, send postcards from the Arctic Circle with a post stamp saying "Arctic Circle" on them. Santa resides in his own village that feature loads of shops, outlets, souvenirs. There are also good cross country skiing tracks around Santa Claus' village”
