An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
On the 23rd (Mon), get in on the family fun at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, make a trip to Santa Claus Office, and then make a trip to Santa Claus Village. Here are some ideas for day two: stop by LAURI Handicraft Shop & Atelier, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, then get curious at Pilke Science Centre, then take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, and finally make a trip to Lordi's Square.
