The Live webcamera has become an attraction in itself

Visit rovaniemi receives many questions regarding the Live webcameras of Rovaniemi weekly, and the most devoted fans report even the shortest interruptions in the streams! “We love how the true friends of Christmas send us messages about the Live webcameras of Rovaniemi daily. They watch the live feed while they eat breakfast, and check the Live webcameras at evenings when they get home from work, and wish to include us in their experience. Every winter we receive many messages about snow covering the cameras in the Lordi´s Square or in Santa Claus Village and so on. So truly our viewers care about the continuation of the live videos from Rovaniemi. The Visitors of Rovaniemi Lapland Finland make plans beforehand to stand infront of the Live webcameras when they get here, to say hello to friends and loved ones back home”, States Jenny Silvennoinen Content Creator of Visit Rovaniemi.
