Una leggenda radicata nella natura

Nel folclore finlandese la Lapponia è conosciuta come un luogo mitico di sciamani, spiriti e incantesimi, che rappresenta con saghe soprannaturali nell’aspra bellezza della selvaggia natura nordica. Molte leggende hanno le loro radici nei fenomeni naturali, come le Aurore Boreali ed il sole di mezzanotte, e sopravvivono ancora oggi.

Il legame con la natura rimane

Il legame con la natura è rimasto quale elemento centrale della vita lappone nel corso della storia. Oggi Rovaniemi è una città moderna, ma le aree naturali che la circondano sono ancora frequentate dalla gente per la caccia, la pesca e la raccolta di bacche e di funghi. Il bosco ha fornito da mangiare alla gente del posto per millenni.

Una lezione completa di storia locale attraverso tre attrazioni

Per comprendere la storia e la cultura del luogo e della regione, i posti sicuri da cui cominciare sono il museo e centro di scienze artiche Arktikum e La casa della cultura Korundi. L’introduzione alla vita locale viene completata quindi dalla visita all’esposizione tematica sul bosco al Science Centre Pilke – a tutti e tre si accede facilmente con un unico biglietto, il Culture Pass.

Che cosa fa la gente del posto?

Trascorrere del tempo all’aria aperta caratterizza la vita di Rovaniemi. Oltre ai passatempi più tradizionali, la gente si tiene attiva facendo trekking, percorsi in mountain bike, sci di fondo, snowboard, escursioni in motoslitta… ci sono decine di opportunità per le attività all’aperto a Rovaniemi.
Volete fare qualcosa di tipicamente locale? Andate a uno delle decine di rifugi aperti che si trovano nella zona di Rovaniemi e friggetevi delle salsicce sulla fiamma viva.

Mettetevi a fare l'artigiano

In Lapponia c’è una lunga tradizione di realizzare opere d’arte e oggetti di artigianato lavorando materiali locali come il legno e le corna delle renne. Per coloro a cui piace fare le cose con le proprie mani ecco i laboratori artigianali di Rovaniemi, che vi consigliamo vivamente. Se invece armeggiare con le mani non è cosa vostra, manufatti di produzione locale come coltelli, gioielli e oggetti da regalo sono disponibili in molti negozi locali.

Più renne che persone

Le renne sono il simbolo della Lapponia, ed a ragione: ci sono più renne che persone! Con 200 000 e più contro 180 000 il vantaggio è degli animali, così che è improbabile che non ci s’imbatta nelle renne in Lapponia, e per giunta a volte vagano nelle vicinanze del centro di Rovaniemi.
Se volete la garanzia di incontrare le renne, allora le gite in slitta e le visite agli allevamenti è quello che dovete scegliere. Tenere presente che le renne volanti sono un privilegio di Babbo Natale.

Provate il calore della sauna

La sauna è parte inseparabile della cultura finlandese e la Lapponia non fa eccezione dato che molte persone hanno la sauna nelle loro abitazioni e nei bungalow. Per i turisti c’è un’ampia possibilità di esperienze di sauna durante tutto l’anno a Rovaniemi. Per saperne di più su cosa significhi la sauna per i finlandesi, vedi visitfinland.com.

Vita di città in Lapponia

Un’ampia varietà di istituzioni culturali, attrazioni turistiche, centri commerciali, impianti sportivi, ristoranti e bar ha procurato a Rovaniemi la reputazione di vivace capoluogo della provincia di Lapponia. Un costante flusso di turisti e le migliaia di studenti dei collegi studenteschi animano la città con influenze internazionali che si mescolano ai sapori locali.

La vita notturna al nord

Per una città delle dimensioni di Rovaniemi (60.000 abitanti), l’offerta di vita notturna è sorprendentemente buona e va dai cocktail bar alla moda ai club rock. Se ne potrebbe dedurre che Rovaniemi è uno dei pochi posti al mondo in cui è possibile passare da una gita con gli husky direttamente a un cool bar dove il DJ fa girare gli ultimi motivi. Forse è meglio farsi prima una doccia.

Today it's been snowing all day here in Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland and we're thrilled 😍 

Pics are from this morning and by now there are already piles of snow... 

First snow rarely stays for long due to changes in weather and temperature. Permanent snow comes when it comes – We're ready ❄️❄️❄️❄️
