Winter Wonderland Hotel
This property is set on the edge of a frozen lake, and is surrounded by fields and snow-dusted woodland. It’s also just metres from the starting points for snowmobiling sessions and reindeer safaris. You can stay in a cosy bedroom here, or upgrade to a log cabin, which comes with a fireplace and a DVD player. For a real treat, book a deluxe cabin, which features a private Jacuzzi®. Secluded woodland setting 30km outside of Rovaniemi|Snowmobile safaris depart just a few steps from the hotel.
Rovaniemi is the capital of Finnish Lapland. It’s a small, compact city that comes with a real buzz of modern shopping malls, lively bars and restaurants serving up everything from traditional cooking to French cuisine. It’s also got the rather big draw of having Santa Claus on hand – not to mention Arctic wilderness that’s perfect for snowsports and sleigh rides. It’s Christmas all year round at Santa Claus Village, about 8 kilometres north of Rovaniemi on the Arctic Circle. It’s a novelty to send greetings from the Post Office here, and there’s the chance to learn about the history of Christmas traditions.
