Official Hometown of Santa Claus

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.
