Welcome to Rovaniemi, the Official Hometown of Santa Claus. For every day of the year there are plenty of things to do to fill your days: outdoor activities, guided excursions, Lappish culture, art and entertainment. The two grand rivers of Lapland: Kemijoki and Ounasjoki connect at a stone-throws away from our hotel. River boat cruises, water jets, stand up paddling, fishing and canoeing are some of the great activities to try!

The vast forests and wilderness areas are easily accessible with guided and fully-equipped excursions: in the winter by snowmobile, snowshoes, husky or reindeer sleigh rides and in summer and autumn by for example fat bikes, quad bikes, hiking. Santa Claus Village at the Arctic Circle is only 10 minutes drive away, or you can hop on the Santa’s Express Bus to take you there.
