Rovaniemi

— 2 nights

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.

There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, see Santa Claus Office, pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church, and revel in the low prices at Marttiini Store Old Factory.
