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

On the 2nd (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, and then pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church.
