An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Sat): take an exotic tour of a safari tour, have fun at Snowman World Igloo Hotel, then see Santa Claus Office, and finally get in on the family fun at Santa Claus Village. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Lordi's Square, then get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, and then find something for the whole family at SantaPark.
