Undoubtedly the number one event of rallying is hosted by the city of Rovaniemi with appropriate safety measures. To ensure the safety of the championship being raced without any audience, the organiser AKK-Motorsports registered association and the rally organisation is cooperating with the local health authority and the city of Rovaniemi and the local tourist board Visit Rovaniemi linked with local businesses and travel trade.

The snowy Arctic Capital Rovaniemi will be hosting the Artic Rally Finland competition in late February
All arrivals are accommodated in their individual cohort accommodations. Cohort accommodations mean that separate floors/cabins or rooms are divided for different customer groups. The same principals are applied to the restaurant services within the accommodations. The instructions are made to steer the groups to stay within their safe zone and to behave responsibly on their free time and in public places.
We will inform the local travel trade in the safety protocol and instructions and of course the overall requirements of a safe race. To successfully execute a safe Arctic Rally Finland is extremely important and a matter of honour for us, states Managing Director of Visit Rovaniemi Sanna Kärkkäinen.
The travel companies of Rovaniemi are entitled to a huge thank you Kärkkäinen reminds, for they have all worked really hard and persistent in raising the safety measures and for the fluent cooperation with the Lapland Hospital District.
