Rovaniemi is the capital of Lapland and just above the Arctic Circle. It is included in almost all Finland coach tours, self-drive and rail packages and rightly so. The town itself was designed by famous designer Alvar Aalto but the city’s popularity isn’t the city itself – it is the location of it. Located right above the Arctic Circle, the city is the home to Santa Claus, the gateway to more remote areas of Lapland and the biggest base for winter and summer Lapland activities including Northern Lights viewing, midnight sun, rafting and dozens of winter activities. As the biggest city in Lapland it combines the magic of Lapland and the Arctic with city life – a one stop shop for Lapland!
