Rovaniemi is the hometown of Santa Claus and Christmas magic can be experienced every day of the year in places like Santa Claus Village and Santapark. As the cultural capital of Lapland, Rovaniemi is home to Lapland's Provincial Museum Arktikum as well as the Lapland Forestry Museum, the Pilke Science Centre, the Chamber Orchestra of Lapland, and the Korundi House of Culture which also houses the Rovaniemi Museum of Art.

For animal lovers, the various reindeer and husky farms are a must along with the Ranua Zoo that specialises in Arctic fauna; its ‘royal residents’ are the mighty polar bears and their cousins, the Finnish brown bears.

Bordering on the Arctic, Rovaniemi is an exotic place of snow and ice. You can even eat and sleep in buildings made of these chilly materials!
