      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?

      Wellington Boots and Snow and Ice

      by Pascom01 Online Now 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

      by SelinaC Online Now Apr 6, 2014 at 2:51 AM

      Hi,
      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!

    • Stay in Rovaniemi or further up north ?

      by Jonnyme Online Now Jan 2, 2014 at 4:32 AM

      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!

      Thanks!

      Hello. We are a family of five (My wife, plus 5, 10, and 11 years old children) from Madrid, Spain. We will stay at Rovaniemi from 12th December to 16th December. 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.
