— 1 night

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
On the 4th (Mon), see the interesting displays at Christmas House Santa, then see Santa Claus Office, and then don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village. Keep things going the next day: stop by LAURI Handicraft Shop & Atelier, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, then take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, and finally don't miss a visit to Lordi's Square.

The wild expanses of Lapland promise spectacular scenery, adventure, and rich cultural experiences. As the country's northernmost region, it sits well above the Arctic Circle. Despite also being the largest region, in Lapland just 3.4 percent of the Finnish population calls this great stretch of land home, leaving plenty of room for pristine lakes, dense forest, and seven unspoiled national parks. An abundance of well-marked trails await hikers of all levels, while more remote and rugged adventures beckon experienced explorers. Music is of particular importance in these parts, so try to catch a concert or dance performance during your stay.
