Arctic Circle Hiking Area

Early winter river scenery. Partly frozen river, spruce trees on the shores.

Here you can cross the Arctic Circle and experience the wilds of Lapland just outside Rovaniemi, the home of Santa Claus. Stroll to the fine falls at Vaattunkiköngäs and Vikaköngäs. There are also accessible nature trails in the area. The river offers excellent fishing opportunities. Winter wanderers can explore the hiking area's forests and open marshes on skis or snowshoes.
