Rovaniemi

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fishing Charters & Tours and Arctic Emotions Oy. Santa's House of Snowmobiles and Arktikum will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Kemi Church in Kemi (about 1h 45 min away). There's lots more to do: relax in the rural setting at Napapiirin Porofarmi, have fun at Santa Claus Office, get engrossed in the history at Forestry Museum of Lapland, and explore the world behind art at Korundi House of Culture.

To find traveler tips, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Rovaniemi trip maker site.

Erbil, Iraq to Rovaniemi is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Erbil to Rovaniemi. Traveling from Erbil in November, expect Rovaniemi to be much colder, temps between -2°C and -7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) early enough to travel to Posio.
