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.”

Dear Friends of Santa Claus. ❤ It is May in Lapland Rovaniemi and the snow has gradually disappeared. The ice on lakes is melting, and big chunks of ice is seen flowing downstream in rivers.

The Artic nature is ready to blossom once again after a snowy winter. As we reach the end of May, we can once again say hello to the Midnight Sun. 🌲🌞

Have you experienced the Midnight Sun?

In Finland Rovaniemi, we celebrate Mothersday today 8th of May ❤️

Through these images filled with motherly reindeer love we wish all mothers a wonderful day 🌹

Here in Lapland Finland during May the reindeer begin calving. The reindeer herders stay close by to provide safety to the herd but also to ensure the peace for the calf and its mother to create a bond, a very delicate but vital phase.

Looking for the perfect Lapland Summer Activities? 😍🌞 We got them!

How about golf under the Midnight Sun of Lapland, a sneak peek into life of a reindeer herder, or an adventure hiking with huskies? Or what would you say about cruising on Arctic rivers, and ending up on the most instagrammable island in Finland?

Fun fact: The summer golf course in Rovaniemi Lapland Finland was opened on the 5th of May 2022, and breaking records again – this is the earliest opening ever. All the fairways are opened straight to the summer greens.
