We have found a lovely hotel in the town of Rovaniemi, just minutes on a shuttle bus from the magical Santa’s Village. Arrange to fly into Rovaniemi Airport, and transfers from the Airport to your hotel have been arranged. Settle into your comfortable bedrooms, and enjoy the comfort and warmth of the hotel on your first evening in Lapland.
Your bedroom has a flat screen TV, electric kettle, free wireless internet and a bathroom. Hotel Aakenus is pet-friendly hotel, where pets of any size are welcome for small extra fee. All our rooms are non-smoking, and they have also rooms which are suitable for allergy sufferers.
A delicious buffet breakfast on all three mornings is included and is served in the hotel restaurant, where they also serve delicious home-cooked meals. Exploring Rovaniemi and it’s local restaurants is recommended though, to experience a dining experience like no other. Dine by log fires, in an Ice Restaurant or under the stars, the choice is yours.
Adults are invited to make the most of the onsite Sauna, with separate ladies and gentlemen areas. If you can hire a local babysitter this might just be the perfect way to warm your bones after a full day of excitement in the snow.
For other things to do in and around your hotel, seek out the Science Museum, or Arktikum, the science centre. Both have interesting and interactive exhibits, and are just a few minutes walk from your hotel.
If shopping is something you like to practice, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the variety and extent of various shops, shopping centres and markets to explore.
But then of course, the reason we’re all here, Santa! Shuttles head from Rovaniemi regularly, and Santa’s Village is just 10 minutes from Rovaniemi Town Centre, where Santa himself awaits your arrival. Entry to the village is of course, free, and there is lots to see and do without spending another penny, while the additional charges are for activities you might not want to miss.
Try Sledding, Skiing, meet the Huskies and Reindeer, pop into the Elves Workshop and see how they get so much done in so little time, and plan a visit to the original Santa’s Grotto to see the Big Man himself.
Winter wear and most activities can be pre-booked before your trip and all that info will be provided to confirmed travelers. This makes it easier to plan to make the most of your short stay here, and purchase extras in advance of your holiday, making it more affordable.
