      Wellington Boots and Snow and Ice

      Rovaniemi Apr 9, 2014 at 3:55 AM

      Hi, are Wellington boots sensible footwear during December/January in Rovaniemi. they are obviously waterproof but will they be warm enough (with socks and the like of course). I suspect they would be slippery on snow, would that be correct? Or should I look at other waterproof footwear - We are coming from Australia and I have never had to consider this in the past - Thanks and Regards -- Malcolm

    • Best time to Visit

      Rovaniemi Apr 6, 2014 at 2:51 AM

      We are from Malaysia (tropical weather all year round) and planning to visit Scandinavia this year.
      My kids are big fans of Santa Claus and they have seen the photos of Rovaniemi and they want to visit Rovaniemi for sure.
      May I know what is the best time to visit Rovaniemi that we get to see snow and Santa Claus?
      Considering we are from Tropical countries, is it tough to adapt to the cold weather there?
      What's the best mode of transportation?
      When it snows, is it still possible to travel by flight?
      Hope to get your reply as we need to start planning our vacation soon!

      Many thanks!

Given the time of the year, can you still drive around or is the area snowbound. do you need chains. is hiring cars possible/sensible? - regards Malcolm

    • Ivalo and nearby

      by ale25ale Online Now Aug 14, 2009 at 12:00 PM

      we are staying in Helsinki and would like to go to Lapland. At the beginning we wanted to go to Ivalo and then rent a car till North Capp but at this moment this is impossible due to the high costs that this trip would have.
      So we are thinking about flying till Ivalo and then do something there: are there any bus connection to parks, citys or something nearby?
      If we don't rent a car how can we move above there?
      And do you think that the last week end of august will be good to see the northern lights?
      thank you in advance

      Accomodation near Ivalo

      by Visitor_from_Germany Online Now Jan 11, 2005 at 4:30 AM

      Has anybody a recommendation for low priced accomodation for 2 persons, march 11 - 16 2005 (5 nights) near Ivalo? Saariselka is also very much appreciated. Is it reasonable to visit the North Cape from Ivalo in a one-day-trip?
