Rovaniemi ©
An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rovaniemi: Tornio (Duudsonit Activity Park - TornioHaparanda, Tornio Church, &more), Korouoma Canyon (in Posio) and Pyha-Luosto National Park (in Pyhatunturi). There's much more to do: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Luosto, Head underground at Syvasenvaara Fell, and take in the dramatic scenery at Auttikongas.

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

Sydney, Australia to Rovaniemi is an approximately 27-hour flight. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time, which is usually a -8 hour difference. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in August, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Fri) so you can travel to Helsinki.
