Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Family-friendly places like SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus and Santa Claus Village will thrill your kids. Step out of Rovaniemi to go to Ranua and see Ranua Zoo, which is approximately 1h 5 min away. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church, get in on the family fun at Moomin Snowcastle, and look for gifts at LAURI Handicraft Shop & Atelier.
