Rovaniemi

— 1 night

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Kick off your visit on the 25th (Fri): take an exotic tour of a safari tour. Here are some ideas for day two: take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, see Santa Claus Office, and then don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village.

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

Green Bay, USA to Rovaniemi is an approximately 20-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Green Bay to Rovaniemi due to the time zone difference. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Green Bay in March: high temperatures in Rovaniemi hover around 30°F and lows are around 17°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sat) so you can drive to Levi.

Landmarks · Nightlife · Safaris
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.
