Official Hometown of Santa Claus

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province. This picturesque city, situated just 10 kilometers (6 mi) south of the Arctic Circle, offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure, nature photography, wildlife spotting, and relaxation in traditional Finnish saunas. As well as the abundance of unspoiled nature, there is plenty to keep the more culture-oriented entertained. Visitors can spend time appreciating the area's famous architectural offerings, extensive range of restaurants, and traditional handicrafts, which are widely available in stores. Of course, locals certainly aren't shy about the city's most famous resident: Santa Claus. Santa-related attractions, including a Santa Park, are easy to find. Rovaniemi is in Lapland.
