Welcome to Rovaniemi
The capital of Finnish Lapland, visitors are drawn to Rovaniemi to hunt the northern lights in winter and meet Santa Claus at the whimsical Santa Claus Village, where it’s Christmas all year round. A gateway to the Arctic, cold-weather activities are popular things to do in Rovaniemi, including snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and husky or reindeer sledding. During the warmer months, venture into the surrounding wilderness on foot in search of wildlife such as moose. But whenever you visit, don’t skip the Arktikum museum to learn about the culture and history of the Arctic.
