Venture out of the city with trips to Amethyst Mine Lapland (in Luosto), Pyhatunturi (in Pelkosenniemi) and Church of Sodankyla (in Sodankyla). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church, buy something for everyone on your list at Arctic Circle Mall, take an in-depth tour of Forestry Museum of Lapland, and stop by LAURI Handicraft Shop & Atelier.
