Even after being in nail-biting weather, the excitement pushed us to take a stroll around the city. There were very few people out there. Because it's evening and no more sunlight. Within 5 minutes, we reached the banks of Rovoniemi River. A major part of the river had become ice. A fraction at the centre was still in a liquid state. We saw many people snowmobiling over the ice. They have made a snowmobiling track over the river. Soon, the weather became unbearable. The freezing cold wind drilling through the gloves and shoes. Within 10 mute our mobile phones got shut down due to the chilled atmosphere. But DSLR cam was working fine. Operating a touch mobile on this freezing cold has become impossible for us. Just because every time we need to remove the glove to unlock or check something on the phone. Then within a few mints, our hand was becoming frozen. When it becomes unbearable We left back to our room and stuffed warmer packets underneath our gloves and extra layers of socks on the legs. Surrendering has never been in our blood! So after a little heat up, we are ready to move to our next destination. The City Center. It is just 5 minutes away. The tower at the centre of City Center showed -27 degree Celsius. It was fully illuminated in Christmas Lights. There were many ice-statues and ice-slides made for children. We spend some time there to too some photos.

During my 6 month long association with Lapland, this is one of the places that left a lasting impression on me. I'll start with the huge temperature indicator tower erected right in the center. While walking to work everyday in the center, I loved checking the city weather being displayed right there. Look around, you'll find everything from a tourist point of view. Top tour agencies, malls, cafes, souvenir shops, upscale restaurants, bar, bus stop, hotels, and almost everything that you need. If you are stranded in the Lordi's Square, fret not, you are perfectly covered. The Mac Donalds, and Revontulli Mall with Clas Ohlson in the lower ground floor - the one stop shop for everything you need, will be my top recommendation as a tour guide and travel writer. For more details you can reach out to me on my blog Whistling Hound. 😉

If you stay in Rovaniemi city Centre, definitely worth staying close to Lordi square. We where here when it was snowing and that made it even more magical! They have ice skating and slides. You can hire skates and mats to use on the slides all at very reasonable prices. Nice restaurants and shops around too!

It’s no Times Square but who needs all that noise. It’s a quiet, small city square - the center of all things buzzing in Rovaniemi. Sampokeskus on one spot, grocermarkets in another. It’s near the Scandic Rov and the Arctic Hotels. And a couple of restos as well ie Nili. Now They have a heartwarming well lighted tree in time for the Christmas season.
