The vibrant, resort centre is home to a wide range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, whilst hidden away in the woodland outskirts is the wonderful 'Joulukka' Christmas Adventure Forest! This stunning setting on the lake shore is home to Santa's amazing Christmas Control Centre, from where the magic of every Christmas is organised!
In Rovaniemi, the famous Rovi branch of the elf kingdom are recognisable by their big noses and pointy ears, and have been helping Santa Claus for hundreds of years with his Big Christmas List, which is updated all the time as letters to Santa fly in from all over the world. Come and see the Rovi Elves in action at Santa's Christmas Control Centre and in the Elf School.
There is never a dull moment in Rovaniemi, with so many adventures to enjoy during your break with us here. These include favourites such as husky-sledding, reindeer sleigh-rides, tobogganing and snowmobiling, as well as unique Lapland activities such as reindeer-lassoing and kick-sledding!
