Zurich, Switzerland to Rovaniemi is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and flight; or drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Zurich to Rovaniemi due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Zurich in April, you will find days in Rovaniemi are colder (3°C), and nights are a bit cooler (-3°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Akaslompolo.
