The city of Rovaniemi has just begun a campaign to promote remote work opportunities in Rovaniemi. Several Rovaniemi hotels have also marketed remote work packages during the spring, to mention one Sokos Hotel Vaakuna has offered rooms as remote work offices during the day.

The Managing Director of Visit Rovaniemi Sanna Kärkkäinen sees the telecommuting workforce in Finland and also abroad as a potential market for Rovaniemi to invest in.

“The work and leisure are interlaced more and more in the future, and the possibility to shift between two homes, depending on the season or work related status becomes more and more common.” Kärkkäinen sees Rovaniemi as an excellent telecommuting destination for the surrounding nature and sport opportunites, changing seasons and urban services and of course culture offering. “We have an inspiring long sunny spring winter and not to mention peaceful Polar Night, and of course an amazing selection of concerts and libraries.”
