For sure you could. Especially with kids you could spend 2 maybe 3 days just checking the sights centre of Rovaniemi and visiting Santa at Santa Claus Village and SantaPark. Ounasvaara Ski Resort is great for beginners in downhill skiing and also offers some good tracks for experienced cross-country skiiers.

Biggest safari companies have their offices in Rovaniemi. There are some reindeer and husky farms nearby...

But coming this far I would still suggest you travel around a bit... :) Resorts like Levi and Luosto are just within a couple of hours. Luosto (and Pyhä) is smaller and maybe aimed for family- and sports-orientated people. Levi is more popular with younger people, more options for activities, restaurants, active night life etc.

And a great option for a daytrip outside Rovaniemi would be a cruise with Icebreaker Sampo in Kemi!


It's a bit pricy, I've never been to one (still waiting for my free ticket) but I've met people who has been, and even all the Finns have been thrilled - and it's not easy to get a Finn excited!

It's high season, so book you accommodation well in advance. Prices are guaranteed to go up later you book.
