Rovaniemi is situated in the Arctic Circle, right at the confluence of the rivers Kemijoki and Ounasjoki. Rovaniemi is the unofficial capital of Finnish Lapland and the gateway to all the tourism treasures this winter wonderland has to offer. Meet Santa Claus and his elves, no matter what time of the year you visit. He will always be waiting to meet you at the famous Santa Claus Village and Santapark.
Culture vultures can enjoy the city’s eclectic collection of unusual museums and cultural attractions. They can choose from Lapland’s Provincial Museum Arktikum, the Lapland Forestry Museum, the Pilke Science Centre, and the Korundi House of Culture which also houses the Rovaniemi Museum of Art.
Outdoor enthusiasts are equally well catered for with snowmobile safaris, reindeer and husky rides, and Northern Light hunting in the Winter; and relaxing riverboat cruises under the midnight sun in Summer.
