Official Hometown of Santa Claus
An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province. This picturesque city, situated just 10 kilometers (6 mi) south of the Arctic Circle, offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure, nature photography, wildlife spotting, and relaxation in traditional Finnish saunas. As well as the abundance of unspoiled nature, there is plenty to keep the more culture-oriented entertained. Visitors can spend time appreciating the area's famous architectural offerings, extensive range of restaurants, and traditional handicrafts, which are widely available in stores. Of course, locals certainly aren't shy about the city's most famous resident: Santa Claus. Santa-related attractions, including a Santa Park, are easy to find. Plan the details of your Rovaniemi holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Finland road trip planner.

Where to stay in Rovaniemi

For a city just below the Arctic Circle, Rovaniemi offers a surprisingly wide range of accommodations. While most of the major hotels and guesthouses cluster in the city center, you'll find more rustic charm by traversing one of the city bridges and looking for a place to stay in the more residential areas. You'll find that the surroundings change drastically, with lots of trees and greenery interspersed between homes. There are also a few scattered bed and breakfasts, which offer a more authentic experience than you might get in a larger hotel chain.
