Rovaniemi

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Sat): engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, then examine the collection at Santa's House of Snowmobiles, then see Santa Claus Office, and finally make a trip to Santa Claus Village. On the 23rd (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: catch a live event at Lappi Areena, get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, and then get in on the family fun at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus.

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

Bournemouth, UK to Rovaniemi is an approximately 9-hour combination of train and flight. You can also do a combination of car and train; or do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Bournemouth to Rovaniemi. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Bournemouth in December, with highs in Rovaniemi at -6°C and lows at -13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to drive to Levi.

Lapland travel guide

Landmarks · Safaris · Nightlife
The wild expanses of Lapland promise spectacular scenery, adventure, and rich cultural experiences. As the country's northernmost region, it sits well above the Arctic Circle. Despite also being the largest region, in Lapland just 3.4 percent of the Finnish population calls this great stretch of land home, leaving plenty of room for pristine lakes, dense forest, and seven unspoiled national parks. An abundance of well-marked trails await hikers of all levels, while more remote and rugged adventures beckon experienced explorers. Music is of particular importance in these parts, so try to catch a concert or dance performance during your stay.
