Rovaniemi Airport Information

Rovaniemi Airport is the Gateway for Finnish air traffic to Finnish Lapland, north west Russia, (Murmansk and Archangel), northern Sweden (Luleå), and northern Norway (Lakselv). The airport stands literally on the arctic circle, with the line of latitude running right through the airport grounds. This arctic location and our excellent relations with our neighbours at Santa's village suits Santa Claus as well - after all, he has appointed Rovaniemi as his official airport!

The airport bears the Official Airport of Santa Claus trademark within the EU and several other countries. Santa's home is right next to the airport at Santa Claus Village. You can reach it from the airport either on foot or by taking a reindeer, dog team, sleigh or motor vehicle. The extension to the Lapland Gateway terminal was completed in November 2000.
