        Rovaniemi City Information

Rovaniemi city Finland is an international, developing town of business, administration and education, located at the meeting of Lapland’s mighty rivers Kemijoki and Ounasjoki. Rovaniemi is in complete harmony with the surrounding countryside but the urban infrastructure creates opportunities for development and also provides versatile educational and cultural facilities. The city remembers its past but is not afraid to look into the future. Rovaniemi city Finland provides with ample opportunities for people who live here and equal facilities to the visitors.

The word Rovaniemi has often been considered to be of Lappish origin, as "roavve" in Saami denotes a forested ridge or hill or the site of an old forest fire. In the dialects of southern Lapland, however, "rova" means a heap of stones, a rock or group of rocks in a stretch of rapids, or even a sauna stove. It is the largest city by area in the Northern Hemisphere and one of the largest in the world.


Rovaniemi Tourist Attractions
Santa Claus Village

8 km north of Rovaniemi and right on the Arctic Circle is a tourist trap if there ever was one - but few tourists can miss the chance to meet Santa himself. Apart from meeting the man, there are also other attractions like small-scale sledding hills for kids. The village hosts also several safari companies organising different types of activities. During dark times the village has nicely lit ice sculptures. Bus number 8 goes from town to the village.

Arktikum is one of the best museums and science centers in Finland, focusing on life in Lapland through the ages.

German Soldier Cemetery, Norvajärvi is constructed of large stone blocks and located virtually in the middle of nowhere it might be of interest to some. During autumn one can eat berries on the way.

14 devil's churns
14 devil's churns, including three very deep ones, can be found from Sukulanrakka slopes near the island of Rautiosaari.
