An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Explore hidden gems such as Korouoma Canyon and Auttikongas. Visiting Syvasenvaara Fell and Luosto will get you outdoors.

There's lots more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at Angry Birds Park, browse the collection at Rovaniemi City Library, take an in-depth tour of Forestry Museum of Lapland, and engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre.
