Rovaniemi

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Marttiini Store Old Factory and Korundi House of Culture. Attractions like Santa's House of Snowmobiles and Snowman World Igloo Hotel make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: browse the collection at Rovaniemi City Library, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, examine the collection at Christmas House Santa, and don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Office.

To find photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Rovaniemi online travel planner.
