Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Attractions like Ranua Zoo and Santa Claus Office make great kid-friendly stops. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church, and admire the masterpieces at Korundi House of Culture.

To find where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Rovaniemi travel website.

Tulsa, USA to Rovaniemi is an approximately 21.5-hour flight. Traveling from Tulsa to Rovaniemi, you'll lose 8 hours due to the time zone difference.

On the 22nd (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, pause for some serene contemplation at Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel, and then fly down the slopes at Urho Kekkonen National Park.

To find photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Saariselka travel itinerary planner.
