Kids will appreciate attractions like SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus and Lordi's Square. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church, and see Santa Claus Office.

Landmarks · Safaris · Nightlife
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.
