An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Take a break from Rovaniemi with a short trip to Ranua Zoo in Ranua, about 1h 5 min away. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, see Santa Claus Office, don't miss a visit to Lordi's Square, and engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre.

To see photos, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Rovaniemi trip site.

Helsinki to Rovaniemi is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. Traveling from Helsinki in August, expect nights in Rovaniemi to be about the same, around 11°C, while days are a bit cooler, around 20°C.
