Set in the heart of Ounasvaara, on the edge of Rovaniemi, the Santasport specialises in active holidays and wellbeing breaks. There’s something for all ages and fitness levels, so it’s a great choice for families. Bedrooms here are modern and spacious, and come with wooden furniture and plenty of soft seating. They each come with a kitchenette, too, while family rooms feature a PlayStation console. 2km from Rovaniemi.
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.
