Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
On the 28th (Wed), don't miss a visit to Lordi's Square, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, then have fun at Santa Claus Office, and finally don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village. Here are some ideas for day two: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus and then get engrossed in the history at Arktikum.
