Arctic Circle Hiking Area

A winter image, river water that is not frozen, and snow and ice in the foreground. There is a black and white bird sitting on the ice, the dipper.

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.
