Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to German Soldier s Cemetery and Duudsonit Activity Park - TornioHaparanda. Bring the kids along to Arktikum and Snowman World Igloo Hotel. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rovaniemi: Korouoma Canyon (in Posio) and Pyha-Luosto National Park (in Pyhatunturi). There's still lots to do: get curious at Pilke Science Centre, find something for the whole family at Moomin Snowcastle, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
