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 Ounasvaaran Hiihtokeskus Oy and Rovaniemi City Library. There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Santa Claus Village, explore the fascinating underground world of Syvasenvaara Fell, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, and stop by LAURI.

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

Cairns, Australia to Rovaniemi is an approximately 30-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Cairns to Rovaniemi is minus 8 hours. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Cairns in February: high temperatures in Rovaniemi hover around -6°C and lows are around -11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) so you can travel to Salla.
