An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at SantaPark and Auttikongas. Santa's House of Snowmobiles and Rovaniemi Local History Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rovaniemi: Kemi (Kemin Jalokivigalleria (Kemi Gemstone Gallery) & Kemi Church). There's still lots to do: get interesting insight from Tours, stop by Kauppakeskus Sampokeskus, get lost in a book at Rovaniemi City Library, and make a trip to Marttiinin Wanha Tehdas.
