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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Syvasenvaara Fell and Napapiirin Porofarmi. Change things up with a short trip to Ranua Zoo in Ranua (about 1 hour away). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village and see Santa Claus Office.

For reviews, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Rovaniemi trip maker site.

Jerusalem, Israel to Rovaniemi is an approximately 11-hour flight. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Jerusalem in August: high temperatures in Rovaniemi hover around 20°C and lows are around 11°C. On the 25th (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can fly back home.

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.
