Though it was off peak period, we enjoyed ourselves in the quietness of the beautifully decorated cottages.
The different and unique designs of each buildings captured our hearts too.
We spend a full day browsing through the gift shops, meeting up with Santa Claus and took a group photo with him for a one time memory, crossing the Arctic Circle line, visited the Glass Resort, and enjoying ourselves to the various choices of sumptuous food in the restaurants.
Michael picked us up from the airport with his ever charming smile and made us feel welcome.
The reception staff was very helpful and friendly. Patiently attending to our queries.
Overall, it was a fantastic memorable stay.
Reindeer Safari and Husky Safari arranged by Nordic Adventures in Lapland was a fabulous experience and enjoyed thoroughly. Feel like re-visiting again just to enjoy these rides. However, we were not lucky to see Aurora-Northern Lights.
Hotel accommodation at the Santa Claus Holiday Village was very nice. Vegetarian food variety not available.
Special thanks to Mr. Alex Rudyuk, who was friendly with our family members, explaining the sight seeing places and courteous in taking us around other places in the Rovaniemi City.
