Rovaniemi

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Start off your visit on the 1st (Wed): see Santa Claus Office, Head underground at Syvasenvaara Fell, then see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, and finally engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre.

Plan my trip to Rovaniemi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Kirkenes, Norway to Rovaniemi is an approximately 7-hour car ride. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kirkenes to Rovaniemi. Traveling from Kirkenes in June, expect nights in Rovaniemi to be about the same, around 9°C, while days are a bit warmer, around 18°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to travel to Helsinki.
