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 Syvasenvaara Fell and Marttiinin Wanha Tehdas. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Safaris and Pilke Science Centre. Step out of Rovaniemi to go to Kemi and see Sampo Icebreaker, which is approximately 2 hours away. There's much more to do: browse the collection at Rovaniemi City Library, snap pictures at Lumberjack's Candle Bridge, admire all the interesting features of Lappi Areena, and examine the collection at Christmas House Santa.
