Rovaniemi

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rovaniemi: Samiland (in Sirkka), Pyha-Luosto National Park (in Pyhatunturi) and Amethyst Mine Lapland (in Luosto). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, engage your brain at Pilke Science Centre, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rovaniemi Church, and don't miss a visit to Santa Claus Village.

To find other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Rovaniemi road trip planning site.

Thessaloniki, Greece to Rovaniemi is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and train.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
