An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Bring the kids along to SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus and Ranua Zoo. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church, engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre, and stop by LAURI Handicraft Shop & Atelier.

To find maps, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read Rovaniemi attractions planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Rovaniemi is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train.

Traveling from Amsterdam in December, things will get colder in Rovaniemi: highs are around -6°C and lows about -13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) so you can go by car to Levi.
