Acceda al Ártico desde Rovaniemi

La región septentrional del Círculo Polar Ártico se denomina simplemente el Ártico. En el Ártico, hay ciudades más grandes que Rovaniemi, pero ninguna en las inmediaciones del Círculo Polar Ártico. En Rovaniemi, el Círculo Polar Ártico se extiende desde la aldea de Santa Claus, situada ocho kilómetros al norte del centro de la ciudad, donde está claramente señalizado.

¿Qué es el Círculo Polar Ártico?

El Círculo Polar Ártico es un círculo de latitud que discurre 66°33′45,9″ al norte del Ecuador. Marca la latitud más austral en que el sol puede permanecer continuamente por debajo o por encima del horizonte durante 24 horas; estos fenómenos son conocidos como el sol de medianoche en verano y la noche polar (“Kaamos”) en invierno.

Zona sin estrés

Muchos consideran el Círculo Polar Ártico la frontera de las prisas y el estrés, lo que significa que al cruzar la línea hacia el norte dejan de existir. Adentrarse tan solo unos pocos kilómetros al norte sin duda refuerza el mito; el Área de Senderismo del Círculo Polar Ártico es un buen ejemplo de la relajante belleza natural del Ártico.

¿Dónde cruzar el Círculo Polar Ártico en Rovaniemi?

Es prácticamente imposible no cruzar el Círculo Polar Ártico en Rovaniemi. La mayoría lo hacen en la aldea de Santa Claus, donde está señalizado e incluso se puede adquirir un documento que certifique la hazaña. Muchos de los circuitos de actividades de Rovaniemi cruzan el Círculo Polar Ártico en algún momento, por lo que es habitual hacerlo en moto de nieve, en trineos de huskies o en un trineo tirado por renos.

¿Cómo cruzar el Círculo Polar Ártico en Rovaniemi?

En general, cruzar el Círculo Polar Ártico puede hacerse de cualquier forma que elija: andando, saltando, deslizándose, sobre ruedas… las posibilidades son infinitas. Previa solicitud pueden organizarse ceremonias para conmemorar el cruce, algo especialmente recomendado para grupos. Es posible que haya estado en el espacio aéreo del Ártico antes incluso de aterrizar en el aeropuerto de Rovaniemi.

Hágalo bajo tierra

Según tenemos entendido, Rovaniemi es el único lugar del planeta donde es posible cruzar el Círculo Polar Ártico bajo tierra. En SantaPark, la gruta de Santa Claus, se puede acceder al Ártico a 50 metros por debajo de la superficie terrestre; algo que no se hace todos los días. Y sí, hay disponibles certificados que acreditan que la hazaña efectivamente ha tenido lugar.

Waking up today to a snowfall, first of the season 🥰❄️ Feeling all Merry all ready 😍❄️

In Rovaniemi first snow usually falls during October, sometimes as soon as late September. A permanent snow cover is expected in November, and April is still considered a snowy month – there’s often a bit of it left even in early May.
