An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Arktikum and Korundi House of Culture. Get in touch with nature at Safaris and Syvasenvaara Fell. There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, see Santa Claus Office, examine the collection at Santa's House of Snowmobiles, and take in the dramatic scenery at Auttikongas.

Landmarks · Safaris · Nightlife
The wild expanses of Lapland promise spectacular scenery, adventure, and rich cultural experiences. As the country's northernmost region, it sits well above the Arctic Circle. Despite also being the largest region, in Lapland just 3.4 percent of the Finnish population calls this great stretch of land home, leaving plenty of room for pristine lakes, dense forest, and seven unspoiled national parks. An abundance of well-marked trails await hikers of all levels, while more remote and rugged adventures beckon experienced explorers. Music is of particular importance in these parts, so try to catch a concert or dance performance during your stay.
