Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.

There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre, see Santa Claus Office, and examine the collection at Christmas House Santa.
