An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Kids will enjoy Arctic Emotions Oy and Syvasenvaara Fell. Step out of the city life by going to Fishing Charters & Tours and Luosto Adventures. The adventure continues: stroll through Napapiirin Porofarmi, find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, and engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre.
