Safaris, Rovaniemi

4.5
#1 of 151 in Outdoors in Finland
Joining a Rovaniemi safari allows you to marvel at the great Arctic wilderness while dashing through the snow on a reindeer-pulled open sleigh. As you snuggle under a comfy blanket and your nose turns as red as Rudolf's from the rush of cold air, your guide will lead the expedition across Lapland's stunning landscape--plenty of photo opps here, so be sure your camera is fully charged. You'll learn about traditional life in this frozen part of the world, while warming up over a cup of tea and listening to tales of local folklore in a cozy "kota" (a traditional tent). This 2-hour snow adventure can be also be enjoyed on a light husky-drawn sled.

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.
