We had a wonderful time in Rovaniemi. Never thought I would enjoy -20 something so much!
Lapland winter holidays offer an Arctic playground where it’s possible to explore the twinkling landscape by dog sled, reindeer sleigh or snowmobile. Best known as being the official hometown of Santa Claus, the regional capital of Rovaniemi, located on the Arctic Circle, makes for a magical family holiday.
Known locally as ‘fox fires’, according to Sami legend the northern lights are caused by a fox running across the Arctic fells lighting up the sky with sparks flying from its tail. In Finnish Lapland, nature’s light show can be seen on roughly 200 nights a year - experience aurora hunting by snowmobile or husky sled, or stay warm in a glass-ceilinged igloo and watch the flickering ribbons of colour from the comfort of your own bed.
