Rovaniemi

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Santa's House of Snowmobiles and Korundi House of Culture. Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Ounasvaaran Hiihtokeskus Oy. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church, and make a trip to Santa Claus Village.

To see traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the Rovaniemi trip tool.
