Famous as the home of Santa Claus, Lapland is a true winter wonderland where the sky is often filled with the enchanting spectacle of the northern lights. Located in Finland's far north, the city of Rovaniemi springs to life every winter as visitors come to catch a glimpse of Father Christmas in his
log cabin in Santa Claus Village or Santapark. Just 5km south of the Arctic Circle, the city is surrounded by an unspoiled frozen wilderness that's perfect for viewing the aurora borealis or trying out winter activities, such as dog sledding and snowmobiling.
