Welcome to Rovaniemi!

Rovaniemi is the capital of Lapland in Finland, located at the northern Arctic Circle. Lying at the junction of North and South on the border to the Arctic, and in the crossroads of two huge natural rivers, Rovaniemi is a unique destination to enjoy wilderness and silence.

It is guaranteed, that in Rovaniemi you’ll realize just how small you are.

It’s difficult to judge distance as on a clear day, the horizon reaches surprisingly far into the distance. On the summit of fell, you can experience the renowned sound of silence. A moment of silence, with the fell winds gently caressing the skin, you forget the hustle and bustle of civilization.
