River cruises

As said, summer in Finland is about water. In Rovaniemi, Lapland, river cruises take you to Rovaniemi’s two major bodies of water, Ounasjoki river and Kemijoki river, for great views. The Midnight Sun shines in Rovaniemi through the summer, giving spectacular light to go on excursions on evenings.

Step on a big cruise and share the experience with dozens of others, or book a smaller river boat for your family and friends. Find all river boat cruises from below.

A bunch of birch branches? Nope. This one is "saunavihta" or "saunavasta" in Finnish. An essential sauna tool. It's used in the sauna to enhance the effect of heat by beating onself with it. 

Midsummer celebration continues here in Rovaniemi, Lapland, and we guess that saunavihtas are in use in many Finnish cabins today! 🍃🍃
