I am arriving at rovaniemi airport at 16:20. I want to catch the ski bus to Luosto.I only have 20mins. to get through customs. WillI have enough time to do this.
Hi VT-ers! We are planning a trip to catch the Northern Lights and hopefully some activities like ice fishing, snowmobil, reindeer farm visit and husky rides around Oct-Nov. And then we realise it may be too early to be snowing at this period. Unfortunately this seems to be the only time we can visit.
We still wanna visit Santa Claus Village... Is that different from Santa's Park? Secondly would Rovaniemi be the right hub for us to do all these activities at this time? Or should we travel further north? If so, what is the best way to move from town to town?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I want to travel from Rovaniemi to Kiruna on 16 or 17/3/2016 (Sat or Sun).
But I can't find there is any suitable bus on Sat or Sun on internet.
Can anyone 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.

4 Adults going to Rovaniemi end of February 2015 for 3 nights. Our goal is to see the Northern Lights. How do we organize the best way of doing this?

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.

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?
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.
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, 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!
We are staying in Lapland over Xmas this year (2014) and was looking for suggestions about things to do in Rovaniemi
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!
