Rovaniemi

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Go for a jaunt from Rovaniemi to Ranua to see Ranua Zoo about 1 hour away. The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church, get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, and examine the collection at Christmas House Santa.

To find photos and other tourist information, you can read our Rovaniemi trip website.

New York City, USA to Rovaniemi is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from New York City to Rovaniemi due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New York City in December, things will get much colder in Rovaniemi: highs are around 22°F and lows about 11°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 22nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.

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.
