An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Arktikum and LAURI Handicraft Shop & Atelier. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rovaniemi Church and Church of Sodankyla. Venture out of the city with trips to Museum - Gallery Alariesto (in Sodankyla), Tornio (Tornion vesitorni, Tornio Church, &more) and Maupertuis Memorial (in Pello). Spend the 9th (Mon) exploring nature at Pyha-Luosto National Park. There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, see the interesting displays at Christmas House Santa, admire the landmark architecture of Kemi Church, and engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre.
