Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Arktikum and Rovaniemi Church. Bring the kids along to Lordi's Square and Santa's House of Snowmobiles. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Christmas House Santa, get engrossed in the history at Forestry Museum of Lapland, engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre, and look for gifts at Kauppakeskus Sampokeskus.

The wild expanses of Lapland promise spectacular scenery, adventure, and rich cultural experiences. As the country's northernmost region, it sits well above the Arctic Circle. Despite also being the largest region, in Lapland just 3.4 percent of the Finnish population calls this great stretch of land home, leaving plenty of room for pristine lakes, dense forest, and seven unspoiled national parks. An abundance of well-marked trails await hikers of all levels, while more remote and rugged adventures beckon experienced explorers. Music is of particular importance in these parts, so try to catch a concert or dance performance during your stay.
