Are there shuttle bus from the Rovaniemi airport to Santa's Hostel
hi we need transport from kemi hotel to rovaniemi hotel on christmas day morning and back to kemi airport very early as flight is at 7 am... any suggestions re company please as cannot find any online
We are visiting in December and unfortunately we have already book our stay and then realized we wanted to visit the Sampo Icebreaker and then now we have no idea how can we get from our hostel to Aallonkatu bus stop and back. Pickup at Aallonkatu bus stop is at 10.30am and we will be back to Rovaniemi approximately 08:00pm. (according to brochure). Any help is appreciated.
Can somebody recommend some good local tour operator in Rovaniemi?
How much will it cost for two person taking a Taxi From Sky Hotel to Rovaniemi Railway Statiion and also from Hotel to Aallonkatu Bus Sation.
We will come to Inari in march 2015 and for the excursions it will be better to know somebody speaking french.
We hope to see the auroras, we are 60 years old and we aren't very sportsman.
Thanks for the answer
I have bought a ticket to rovaniemi on 27th of December, however, as all the accomodation is already booked in rovaniemi, i had to book a cottage 100 m from the city, 20 km near the Pello, but I have no idea how to get there, I cannot rent a car, as i don't know how to drive, we're 4 so we could share a taxi if its not super expensive, does anyone know how much approximately would the axi cost, or if there is any other transport between rovaniemi and pello? Help Please..
Hi I had booked a flight from England to Helsinki on the first of November. I will visiting my friend in Rauma and Pori but struggling to sort the route out as I am really keen on going to Rovaniemi for Nothern lights and Santa Claus hometown. I know it is enough to stay in Rovaniemi for a day but would it be possible to see the aurora early on November? Any information will be helpful! Thanks!
Me and my husband will be visiting Rovaniemi on 28-29 november this year. Could you suggest some good itinerary where we can also do some activities including visit to Santa claus places. Also please suugest some good and economical places to stay.
Hello everybody, I'm planning to visit Rovaniemi the next november with my family. I have two question for you
1. Which location or city can we visit near Rovaniemi? Our trip is six day and we would visit Rovaniemi for about three days and visit another location for other days.
2. I have a son, he is three years old, is it a fine destination for him? Obviously yes for Santa Claus Village and for Christmast atmosphere but I am worried for cool temperature.
What do you think about?
me and my girlfriend are planning to visit Oulanka National Park on beginning of October for 3 days. I heard you have some sleeping huts on the trail, which are free to use. Could you tell me a little bit about how they are equipped? And is there any map, where we can see the huts locations?
What's more, are there some Saunas in Oulanka National Park, where you can jump into the sea right after :) ?
We will be travelling by train from Rovaniemi to Helsinki around 11/12 October 2014. My husband wants to go during the day and I would prefer the night train with sleeper. Could you please advise if there is a lot to see along the route. If so, we will go during the day.
Is there any bus service to Inari from Rovaniemi on X'mas? Thank you for your attention.
Does anyone know anything about the key system for the huts along the Nordkalottleden? I've heard that I need a key for the huts, but don't know where I can get the key?
Hi VT family,
We are an Australian family of 8 (2 grand children aged 6 and 3 in that family) and we have booked a cabin in Muurola area from 20/12 to 27/12 this year (2014). I'm looking for suggestion about what would be good places in Rovaniemi to book in for a Xmas lunch and a Xmas dinner on 25/12/14. Does anyone have any recommendations please?
Thanks in advance,
Hi I read in the Lonely planet guide for Finland, that you can climb to a point in this area where there are some fantastic views of three nations. Where is this, and is it a days trek or a couple of days?
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
We are an Australian family of 8 spending a white Xmas in Rovaniemi from 20/12/14 to 27/12/14. Considering hiring cars as we have booked accommodation at Muurola. 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
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!
Does anybody know what the roads from Tromso to Kilpisjärvi are like to drive on in March? Thanks :)
We are staying in Lapland over Xmas this year (2014) and was looking for suggestions about things to do in Rovaniemi
I planning to go saariselka on november.what activities I can do on that time?
what is the DAY TRAIN TIMETABLE from Helsinki to Rovanemi?
Hi! I will be visiting the Lapland in early February. I am a solo male traveler and my concerns are should i stay in rovaniemi or further up north? e.g 1-2 days stay then move up to Levi etc and spend another 1-2 days there. My interests are in the beauty of the wilderness area (easy to moderate winter trails that dont take more than a day), husky and reindeer rides and hopefully catching a free aurora instead of going with the tours provided (am contemplating the night snowmobile aurora hunt, not sure if its worth though). Im always open to recommendations! Much help would be appreciated please!

I want to take the sampo icebreaker in february and the meeting point is Aallonkuta bus stop, What's the most nearby hotel to the bus stop as I think it would not be easy to walking around in Feb's cold weather.
Thank you very much!!!

I visit the Rovaniemi Webcams daily and not too much snow really. The weather forecast, besides its unpredictability, does not show at this moment great snowfalls for next week. So I am wondering if,,, snowmobiles or huskies trip are possible with the actual snow and weather conditions?... And if not... what can we do???. We have rent a car for those days, and will be staying at ounasvaaran Pirtit ¿should we move somewhere else to do those trips?. All information and recommendations are wellcome. Best regards from Madrid.
