Rovaniemi

Rovaniemi ©
An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Get out of town with these interesting Rovaniemi side-trips: Amethyst Mine Lapland (in Luosto), Ranua Zoo (in Ranua) and Pyhatunturi (in Pelkosenniemi). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, get curious at Pilke Science Centre, take in the dramatic scenery at Auttikongas, and make a trip to Santa Claus Village.

Plan my day in Rovaniemi using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Brussels, Belgium to Rovaniemi is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Brussels to Rovaniemi. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Brussels in August: high temperatures in Rovaniemi hover around 20°C and lows are around 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Saariselka.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: pause for some serene contemplation at Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel, fly down the slopes at Urho Kekkonen National Park, and then surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.
