From Russia travellers reach Rovaniemi, a town in the heart of Finnish Lapland where clear days make the town a delightful spot. In spring and in summer visitors can experience the magical midnight sun. While during the winter months Rovaniemi is alive with travellers and locals participating in their own winter sports games with activities such as cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice surfing and ice golf.
