Rovaniemi

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Ski Resort Ritavalkea and Pyhatunturi. Get outdoors at Safaris and Syvasenvaara Fell. Step out of Rovaniemi with an excursion to Amethyst Mine Lapland in Luosto--about 1h 35 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church, see Santa Claus Office, stroll through Ounasvaaran Hiihtokeskus Oy, and don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village.
