Rovaniemi

— 3 nights

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Kids will appreciate attractions like SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus and Santa Claus Office. Step out of Rovaniemi with an excursion to Ranua Zoo in Ranua--about 1 hour away. There's much more to do: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church, and get curious at Science Centre Pilke.

Landmarks · Nightlife · Safaris
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.
