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

There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village, get your game on at Snowman World Igloo Hotel, examine the collection at Christmas House Santa, and see Santa Claus Office.
