The Capital City of Lapland Rovaniemi is a unique destination both with respect to location and services. Located where Lapland begins, you can cross the Arctic Circle, meet Santa Claus, enjoy the brightness of the summer nights or, in winter, admire the Norther Lights. Rovaniemi is an adventure in itself. The rivers running through the town, Ounasjoki River and Kemijoki River, the Ounasvaara Hill recreation area, Ranua, and Ranua Wildlife Park, together with the wilderness trails setting out from the City, are all available to travellers.
The summertime riverboat and jeep safaries revert in the winter to snowmobiles and husky or reindeer teams. A thematic evening by a wilderness camp fire, enjoying the scenic river shores or visiting a nearby reindeer farm – is an experience cherishing forever.
