An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Rovaniemi is known for wildlife, museums, fun & games, nightlife, and theme parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get in on the family fun at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre, don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village, and hit the slopes at Ounasvaaran Hiihtokeskus Oy.

To see maps, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Rovaniemi trip itinerary website .

New York City, USA to Rovaniemi is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of flight and train.
