An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like German Soldier s Cemetery and Church of Sodankyla. Museum-lovers will appreciate Arktikum and Forestry Museum of Lapland. Change things up with these side-trips from Rovaniemi: Salla Museum of War & Reconstruction (in Salla), Korouoma Canyon (in Posio) and Jemes Sport (in Yllasjarvi). On the 28th (Sat), ski the day away in the pristine settings at Ski Resort Suomutunturi. There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, look for all kinds of wild species at Napapiirin Porofarmi, take an in-depth tour of Rovaniemi Local History Museum, and take an exotic tour of Ranua Zoo.
