Step out of Rovaniemi to go to Ranua and see Ranua Zoo, which is approximately 1h 5 min away. And it doesn't end there: get in on the family fun at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre, and pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church.

For reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Rovaniemi trip itinerary planning website.
