Business Finland published earlier today 10.12.2020 how the Russians are known to be huge fans of culture – but how to introduce the Finnish culture offering to our eastern neighbors, when our borders are closed, and we are not able to invite them for a visit?  Visit Finland has offered a solution for the grand Russian audience – in the form of virtual tours to Finnish museums.

Rovaniemi culture attractions Arktikum Museum and Science Center and Korundi House of Culture joined in the first part of the campaign that was released in the leading Russian social media platform ”Odnoklassniki.ru” in the early summer of 2020 among seven other museums and was very warmly received in both Russian video views and Russian media hits.

The second part of the campaign begun at the end of November and was completed on Monday the 7th of December 2020. This time around another Russian social media giant – “VKontakte.ru” joined. Neighbour in the North -campaign has gathered a total of 16 museums around Finland, which have together earned over 6 103 000 views, in addition the campaign PR work has inflicted 51 media hits in leading Russian media, building a total advertising value of 82 000 euros.

Arktikum Museum and Science Center joined the Neighbour in the North – Your virtual introduction to life in the north 

Open your eyes to the Arctic Science Center and museum Arktikum. This Virtual experience lets you experience northern nature, culture, and history up close. By taking a tour gain a deeper understanding of the Arctic.

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.
