An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Visiting Ranua Zoo and Nature & Wildlife Tours will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, stop by LAURI Handicraft Shop & Atelier, make a trip to Lordi's Square, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church.

To find where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Rovaniemi vacation planner.

Oulu to Rovaniemi is an approximately 3-hour train ride. You can also drive; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in August, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) to allow time to drive to Saariselka.
