Rovaniemi ©
An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus and Pilke Science Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Rovaniemi: Ranua Zoo (in Ranua) and Amethyst Mine Lapland (in Luosto). The adventure continues: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, get your game on at Snowman World Igloo Hotel, admire the masterpieces at Korundi House of Culture, and get engrossed in the history at Arktikum.

Plan my Rovaniemi trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Perth, Australia to Rovaniemi is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of flight and train. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Perth to Rovaniemi due to the time zone difference. Prepare for colder weather when traveling from Perth in December: high temperatures in Rovaniemi hover around -6°C and lows are around -13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) to allow time to drive to Levi.
