Introduction

Rovaniemi is for many tourists the starting point to explore Lapland. The city itself doesn't have much attractions, but die surrounding area has more. Santa Claus' home is exactly on the Arctic circle, and he is not only home during Christmas, but all year round. You can also visit the Arktikum: a museum about people and animals in Lapland and the Lapland culture and history. All the exhibitions in the museum are underground.   

Population

Rovaniemi has 35,000 inhabitants.

Location

The city lies in the north of Finland, just below the Arctic circle. Rovaniemi was built at the confluence of two rivers, the Kemijoki and the Ounasjoki. Through the northern region, winters can become very cold, and summers are generally pretty cool. In July the sun doesn't set, but in January it shines for only 3½ hours per day.

Economy

Tourism is of great importance to the city. People come to Rovaniemi to see the midnight sun in the summer, or the Northern Lights in the winter. Furthermore, there is plenty to do in the area: from skiing to riding with the huskies or reindeer, to ice fishing or rafting. 

The city is also the administrative and educational center of Lapland: nearly one in three residents of Rovaniemi is a student.

Airports

The airport of Rovaniemi  lies 10 kilometers north of the city. The airport is especially busy during Christmas season: it processes about 400,000 passengers in two months. 

The airport is easily accessible by rental car: highway 4 (E-75) runs from the center of the city directly to the airport. The exit is clearly indicated. 

Public transportation

There are many bus companies connecting destinations in and around Rovaniemi, but in the evenings and weekends the services are limited. 

Traffic and parking

In the center of the city you must pay to park in the street or in any of the garages. In some areas you can park with a blue parking card. A rental car is a suitable way to visit attractions in the area of Rovaniemi. Firstly, visit for example the Ranua Wildlife Park, 80 km south of the city. You can easily reach the park with a rental car by following road 78 in the direction of Kajaani.

Hotels

Rovaniemi has a good supply of accommodation: from simple guest houses and Bed & Breakfasts to four star hotels. A very special place to stay is the Arctic Snow Hotel at Lake Lehtojärvi. As the name suggests, the hotel is made of snow and ice. There is a camp site right by the city center, directly on the Kemijoki river.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
