Things To Do in Rovaniemi

Santa Claus Village
4.5/5

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!
Arctic Circle Snowmobile Park

巫球王The Arctic region is the northernmost place on the earth. There are many famous tourist attractions. The Arctic Circle marking is one of them. Many tourists come here to take pictures. Come take a look!
Arktikum museum and arctic science centre

E33***72Love the modern igloo-inspired design. Interesting museum that’s more a science center than art museum. Apparently a local tip is that the lake nearby is a good dark place to try spotting the northern lights!

Santa Claus Office
4.1/5
40 Reviews
魔女三号babykikileeThe Santa Claus office is open all year round. We are here in winter. Santa Claus will start to work at 10 o'clock. It is recommended to queue up early, because there are many tourists who come to Santa Claus to take pictures every day, and there is not a lot of time waiting in line. Every day there will be a Santa Claus who holds a certificate to work. They answer various questions and take pictures from people all over the world. Tickets to the Santa Claus Office are free, but there is a charge for taking photos with Santa Claus, and the price is not cheap. An A5 photo is 30€ and an A4 photo is 35€. 4 small (10x15cm) photos for 40€. I can't take pictures, I must be taken by his professional photographer. The price is too expensive, and there is a line up, we will see if there is no photo.
Ranua Zoo

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.
