    Very nice tour, the guide was truly able to entertain himself and show us the beauty of the whole park. The photos with Santa Claus are done really well even if a little expensive (2 photos 52 euros) but it is really worth taking them as a souvenir. very satisfied

    The guide (a Portuguese girl whose name I can't remember), very helpful to requests and nice, well done tour with buffet lunch. The only negative note that does not depend on the tour is that the meeting with Santa Claus lasts about 2 minutes. Still a very nice experience. They issued the certificate for being in the polar circle.

    The Santa Claus village is simply enchanting and even magical with snow in the winter time. Restaurant and shops offer something for all ages. Our guide Elmira was just fantastic. She took a lot of time with us, lap photos and paid attention to every little thing and was very concerned about our well-being. We will always remember the sleigh ride with the reindeer! We would like to thank the entire team and especially Elmira and wish every guest a lot of fun!
