We are having our wedding in Rovaniemi in February (at the Ice Chapel) and I need to organise everything from marriage official, transport and the reception evening to hair, makeup and cake
I would be very grateful for local recommendations please - it will be a small affair with maybe up to 8 guests and we are on a tiny budget!
Please help :-)
Hi there. My family and I (wife and a 6 year old) are planning our winter trip this winter to Rovaniemi. We are first-timers to this unique destination. We have sometime to plan for this trip. We will be booking our flight and accommodation soon. We are looking into the activities that we will participate in. My small one is interested in visiting the Santa Park. As it is a 5 day trip, we have not thought about other activities. We wanted to know if we need to plan ahead about our destination activities or should be just leave it when we get there. Thank you.
Does anyone know if there is any mode of transportation to Kirkeness from Ivalo.?
I went through pasvikturist.no and they are very expensive.
I found the deal on pasvikturist.no from Ivalo hotel to Kirkenes Hurtigruten harbour pick up is 3600 NOK for 1-4 persons. We are two people only so does anyone going on 1st October from Ivalo to Kirkenes? If yes then it would be cheaper as they are charging anyway for upto four people and we are two only.
Please contact me here and also if anyone has an idea of alternate way of transport please let me know..

I am traveling to Aland during the first week in April and I am looking for a place to stay for three nights. The type of accommodation doesn't really matter, although a 5 star hotel is not for me. I am having somewhat of a hard time on Trip Advisor when I type those dates in, and Air BnB seems a little expensive. Is that time of year normally busy in Mariehamn? Will there be any issue showing up and just looking for a place to stay?

-Is getting around this time of year easy on the island?
