Kemi is situated in Sea Lapland, in the centre of the Bothnian Arc. Kemi is the place where you can experience the arctic Sea Lapland. The compact city structure and situation of the town close to the nature give you possibility to experience local life and nature easily. Visit SnowCastle or find yourself from the Cruise Iceberaker Sampo.

Rovaniemi is located in the Arctic Circle. Rovaniemi is the combination of the town services and Lappish nature. Ounasvaara hill is located so near to the city center that you can easily walk to the forest from your hotel and you´ll find yourself in the magic winter forest. Of course during your Rovaniemi visit Santa Claus is in the Santa Claus village waiting to see you and in the same place you can cross the Arctic Circle.

Tornio is international border town. It is the twin city together with Swedish city Haparanda. The place is the mixture of art and history. In winter Tornio is full of possibilities to experience the winter activities. The town is located next to the Tornio river which is the biggest free-flowing river in Europe. So why not to go for an ice fishing or challenge yourself and try the ice swimming. And of course you have to try Finnish everyday life by visiting sauna.
