Nature amidst the city


In the embrace of two great rivers, Ounasjoki and Kemijoki, lies a truly international, administrative and educational centre. The city lives in its own rhythm – suitably soothing yet exciting.
At Rovaniemi, you can enjoy a clear distinction between the different seasons and constantly changing nature. It empowers the everyday life of city residents.

The clean Nordic nature and valuing the quality of life are omnipresent in everyday life. Rovaniemi is a calm and feel-good place to live.

The location of the city at the confluence of two great rivers, surrounded by tree-covered hills and vast forests introduces nature into the lives of people living in and visiting the city.

Recreation places and exercise possibilities are near. Ski tracks, running paths and cycling opportunities are virtually at your doorstep. The rivers crossing the city provide excellent opportunities for boating, canoeing and fishing.
