Rovaniemi

Discover traditional Lappish culture on the edge of the Arctic Circle and visit the home of Santa Claus.

Find out what it takes to survive in the world’s coldest locations and get close to a polar bear in unforgettable Rovaniemi. When you visit the spot where Santa and his elves work tirelessly throughout the year, turn in your own Christmas list personally.

On the banks of the pretty river Kemijoki, Lapland’s capital is the perfect place to get a sense of life in the far north. Start in the Arktikum science centre, a short bus ride from the middle of town. Set inside a long glass tunnel, the exterior itself is amazing. Inside, two separate areas will take you on a fascinating, if chilly journey. Explore the city’s long and sometimes devastating history. Review a range of displays about the people, animals and plants that battle around the world to survive in similar frozen conditions.

Next door, the Pilke Tiedekeskus offers a variety of hands-on exhibits about the forestry industry in Finland. Sit inside a powerful logging vehicle or see if you have the skills to be a forestry manager.

The highlight for many, young and old, will be a visit to Santa Claus Village, a 10-minute drive north of the city centre. All ages can enjoy sledding and snow games before you get the chance to meet Santa himself. Continue in this magical land with a short stroll south to Santapark to explore an underground world of slides and rides.

Rovaniemi is in the region of Lapland in northern Finland. Use the small airport just outside town or take an international flight to Helsinki and use the sleeper train service. In town, a selection of restaurants serve all types of food including the local delicacy of sautéed reindeer.

Fulfil childhood dreams in the snowy haven of Rovaniemi.

            The treehouses are lovely but they are situated on a construction zone for guests visiting when it is not snowing. The breakfast is amazing and the staff are really lovely. It would be great if they had a sauna and conditioner in the bathroom.
