An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rovaniemi: Pyha-Luosto National Park (in Pyhatunturi), Amethyst Mine Lapland (in Luosto) and Ranua Zoo (in Ranua). There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, see the interesting displays at Christmas House Santa, and have some family-friendly fun at Snowman World Igloo Hotel.

To see photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Rovaniemi trip maker website.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 22°F, and evening lows to 11°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Inari.
