      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!

      is the 9.30am bus from Turku a good option? according to their site we'll be at the airport at 11.40 but has anyone done this route? is it really 2 hours and 10 minutes as they say or the traffic may cause big delay?

      Taxi from Turku to Naantaly and back

      by manuna Online Now Feb 8, 2010 at 5:42 AM

      Is it possible to take a taxi between the two cities? What will be approximate charge? I want to be flexible with my time-table and want to save money. There will be 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children. But my elder son will be 16, so I guess he is considered as an adult) So I think that may be taxi will be a better decision then Moomibus? We are planning to visit Moomiworld and Vaski island in one day and be back in Turku in 19:30. Is it real or this is too much?
      Thank you.

      by GregBradley Online Now Jan 24, 2007 at 9:06 PM

      I know this is a long shot, but I had a pen pal from Turku in the 1970's. I was put in contact with him through a television show in the U.S. called The Big Blue Marble. I can not remember his name. All I remember is that he had a little brother and both of them had the blondest of hair, which I am sure is not uncommon. I was living in Oregon, USA at the time. What is the population of Turku? Is it so large that I would have no chance of finding my old pen pal?
