Rovaniemi

Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Ounasvaaran Hiihtokeskus Oy. When in Rovaniemi, make a side trip to see Tatuka Reindeerfarm in Ylitornio, approximately Ylitornio away. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village, examine the collection at Christmas House Santa, take an in-depth tour of Arktikum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church.

For more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Rovaniemi day trip planner.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to Rovaniemi is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Abu Dhabi to Rovaniemi. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Abu Dhabi in January, with highs in Rovaniemi at -10°C and lows at -17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can travel to Helsinki.

Daughter of the Baltic

Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Hietaranta Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Next up on the itinerary: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, sample the tasty concoctions at Stadin Panimo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and make a trip to The Esplanadi Park.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
