An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
On the 4th (Wed), find something for the whole family at Santa Claus Village, see the interesting displays at Santa's House of Snowmobiles, then take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, and finally take in the views from Lumberjack's Candle Bridge. On your second day here, see Santa Claus Office, then explore the fascinating underground world of Syvasenvaara Fell, then experience the excitement of Feelapland, and finally stop by Your Piece Of Finland.

Plan my trip to Rovaniemi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Bangkok, Thailand to Rovaniemi is an approximately 17-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and train; or do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone changes from Indochina Time (ICT) to Eastern European Time (EET), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Bangkok in December: high temperatures in Rovaniemi hover around -6°C and lows are around -13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Suomu.
