Rovaniemi

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Sat): see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, then stop by LAURI, then see Santa Claus Office, and finally get in on the family fun at Santa Claus Village. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 4th (Sun): explore the fascinating underground world of Syvasenvaara Fell, relax in the rural setting at Poro Farmi, then take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church.

Plan my Rovaniemi trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
