Rovaniemi

Rovaniemi ©
An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Attractions like SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus and Arktikum make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Rovaniemi's surroundings by going to Ranua Zoo (in Ranua) and Amethyst Mine Lapland (in Luosto). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church, stop by LAURI Handicraft Shop & Atelier, and get curious at Pilke Science Centre.

Plan a trip to Rovaniemi easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia to Rovaniemi is an approximately 19-hour combination of flight and train. You can also drive; or take a train. The time zone difference moving from Ulaanbaatar Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time is minus 6 hours. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Ulaanbaatar in December: highs in Rovaniemi hover around °C, while lows dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) early enough to drive to Saariselka.

Saariselka

Saariselka ©
Outdoor pursuits--ranging from cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to reindeer safaris and chasing Northern Lights--draw the largest number of tourists to Saariselka.
Kick off your visit on the 29th (Sun): see the interesting displays at Gold Prospector Museum and then examine the collection at Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center. On your second day here, stop by Hippupuoti Gift Shop, thenfly down the slopes at Saariselka Ski & Sport Resort, and then find something for the whole family at Angry Birds Activity Park.

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

Getting from Rovaniemi to Saariselka by car takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: take a bus. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Rovaniemi in December since evenings lows in Saariselka dip to °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel to Levi.
