Rovaniemi

— 4 nights

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Get a sense of the local culture at Arktikum and German Soldier s Cemetery. Visiting Ranua Zoo and Ounasvaaran Hiihtokeskus Oy will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Santa's House of Snowmobiles, take an in-depth tour of Rovaniemi Local History Museum, get curious at Science Centre Pilke, and let little ones run wild at Angry Birds Park.

To find reviews, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Rovaniemi trip itinerary planning website.

Stockholm, Sweden to Rovaniemi is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus.

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.
