It's a winter place for sure. When you visit that place, walk past the arctic circle but the weather is 32 degrees celcius, it's not much fun of travelling around. There were few tourists wandering and buying souvenirs. The post office was the most crowded...More

I met him. He is real. His beard is real and glorious. I also met his reindeers, they are also real. Very inexpensive to feed/meet the reindeer, only 5€. I went in summer and it was incredible regardless.

Pretty quiet here in summer. It’s kind of quaint. Not what I’d say was a great way to spend your time. Lot’s to tacky tourist offerings

A fun place to walk around. You can see the line for the Artic Circle as well. A must thing to do when you are in Rovaniemi.
