E33***72We went in winter and it has such a great Christmas vibe. Santa Claus office is as expected quite touristy with long queue of people waiting to see Santa Claus himself - photos are expensive though (EUR45 a print). Kids would definitely love this place. Remember to get the certificate showing you’ve cross the arctic circle line!

Museum
Viktor_LeeThe Finnish Polar Museum is 2 kilometers away from the center of Rovaniemi, built by the river. Next to it is the Science Center. Going on weekends in summer, very few people. There are various polar animal models, the Komi people in northern Finland, which simulate aurora, and a room where the temperature can be adjusted to simulate low temperature. There is no Chinese in the introduction, but English is not a big deal. Overall it is good.

Zoo
E33***72It’s not the usual boring touristy zoo - highly recommended to check out this wildlife safari with arctic animals. You wouldn’t even see a zookeeper in sight. A totally different feel in winter with the snow! Watch polar bear, arctic fox and reindeers in action. Can easily spend about 2-3hours here. Just a short 45mins bus ride from Rovaniemi.

33K世界环游记Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi-The North Pole Marking must go to the home of Santa Claus in Rovaniemi. This is the only place in the world that recognizes Santa Claus. It is dressed up for the Santa Claus party every year. , It’s easy to find the scale of the Arctic Circle in Santa Claus Village, which means you have entered the Arctic Circle. This moment is very meaningful, so be sure to take a group photo.

Traveler_RenziyuLife must experience: ride a husky sleigh in Rovaniemi, Finland. The hometown of Santa Claus in Finland, but not in his village. I drove to the Husky Farm early in the morning, and there was no "old driver" with him. The team leader needs to "drive" the sled by himself after explaining the precautions. There are six huskies in a sleigh, which can be carried by two people, one standing behind to "drive" and the other sitting in the sleigh. The huskies drove the sled in long lines in the snow. In the world of ice and snow, the husky pulled me to gallop in the endless snowy field, galloping in the cold, through the snowy field and forest, running and splashing snow shining brightly. In Rovaniemi, Finland, the snow in the forest is deep in the middle of the calf. At this moment, experiencing this native mode of transportation has become a traditional and popular activity in Finland. Tip: Be sure to change their special clothes, socks and snow boots at the reception desk of the Husky Farm, or you will die in the cold.

Picture yourself standing in a quiet field. Snow crunches underfoot as you shift your weight, gazing towards the heavens. Your breath forms a frosty mist in the air. In the distance, a dogsled pulls its passenger over the frozen fields. Slowly, almost imperceptibly, the skies above begin to glow. Great rivers of color swirl high overhead and soon the entire sky appears on fire; an eerie greenish light casting shadows far below.

Finland’s reputation as a quirky Nordic country belies the wonders on offer in this amazing destination. Sure the reindeer population might exceed the number of people in some places; but if anything, that’s a testament to the country’s stewardship of its vast ecological resources. Those contemplating a visit may wonder where those truly spectacular sights are. What are the things you simply can’t miss if you want to say you’ve had a real Finnish adventure? Fortunately we’ve surveyed the lands from Helsinki to Nuorgam to bring you the best Finland has to offer.
