Santa Claus Village
The most visited Rovaniemi attraction is the Santa Claus Village located right on the Arctic Circle, where Santa himself spends most of the year available to meet and greet visitors from all over the world. The site includes Santa’s main Post Office, a colourful Christmas world of beautiful cards, stamps and unique gifts, where visitors can sit by an open fireplace and write to friends and family back home. There are cheerful Postal Elves on site who will post your greetings for you, and everything sent from here gets stamped by hand using the special postmark of the Santa Claus Post Office.
Santa Claus Village also has a number of excellent souvenir shops, cafés and restaurants. Christmas House hosts a unique Christmas-themed exhibition, which introduces Finland’s most beloved Christmas traditions, as well as numerous very different traditions from across the globe, and a photography service with Santa Claus. There are five different restaurants or cafés to choose from, featuring traditional Lappish dishes and also more modern cuisine. Santamus provides gourmet dining with additional services like gold panning, live music, sauna, and jacuzzi, and can be pre-booked for private events.
Located right next to the Santa Claus Village complex lies another of the most popular Rovaniemi attractions, styling itself as “the merriest place on the Arctic Circle”. Snowman World is a family oriented tourist attraction of snow and ice. Alongside an art gallery boasting a wide array of incredibly detailed ice-sculptures you will also find an Igloo Hotel and a delightful Ice Restaurant and Ice Bar. There are plenty of activities here for kids and adults, including an ice hill for tobogganing, an ice rink for skating, as well as the opportunity to try your hand at snow sculpting and other fun Lappish games. The newest activity is the popular ‘bag jump’
Home to the Regional Museum of Lapland, the Arctic Science Centre, and a high-tech conference centre, Arktikum is another of the top Rovaniemi attractions, and an architectural gem to boot; well worth a visit by any tourist interested in the region’s fascinating nature, culture and history. The permanent exhibitions in the Regional Museum of Lapland provide a review of the history of Finnish Lapland that spans from Rovaniemi to Upper Lapland and from prehistory to around the 1970s. The Arctic region is examined in light of the Arctic research of today and the future. There are also numerous temporary exhibitions focusing on Northern and Arctic life and culture during the course of the year.
