An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Visiting Ounasvaaran Hiihtokeskus Oy and Syvasenvaara Fell will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sampo Icebreaker and Kopara Reindeer Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Pyha-Luosto National Park (in Pyhatunturi) and Amethyst Mine Lapland (in Luosto). There's much more to do: catch some excitement at Feelapland, explore the different monuments and memorials at German Soldier s Cemetery, stop by LAURI, and snap pictures at Lumberjack's Candle Bridge.
