Rovaniemi

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Get out of town with these interesting Rovaniemi side-trips: Amethyst Mine Lapland (in Luosto) and Luosto (in Sodankyla). There's much more to do: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, enjoy some diversion at Angry Birds Park, pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church, and see Santa Claus Office.

To see where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Rovaniemi road trip website.
