    This very relaxing place with beautiful views of the Lake, I met locals who goes for a swim at the nearby beach. Too bad it doesn't arrive by public transport. For €27 (one way) I took a taxi, you can rent a bike and get a nice ride (one way) for 19 km.

Where to stay in Rovaniemi

For a city just below the Arctic Circle, Rovaniemi offers a surprisingly wide range of accommodations. While most of the major hotels and guesthouses cluster in the city center, you'll find more rustic charm by traversing one of the city bridges and looking for a place to stay in the more residential areas. You'll find that the surroundings change drastically, with lots of trees and greenery interspersed between homes. There are also a few scattered bed and breakfasts, which offer a more authentic experience than you might get in a larger hotel chain.
