Rovaniemi in a nutshell
Rovaniemi is the capital of Finnish Lapland and the hometown of Santa Claus. The population of Rovaniemi is approximately 62 000 and about 500 000 tourists visit Rovaniemi every year. Rovaniemi offers perfect conditions to exercise and even an Olympic Training Center is located in Rovaniemi.
Rovaniemi is located on the Arctic Circle. Four entirely unique seasons offer exquisite opportunities for a runner. In Rovaniemi you can experience snowy forests, northern lights, colourful autumn and midnight sun by running.
During winter (December, January, February, March) Rovaniemi is normally covered with snow. You may see northern lights in the sky and typical daytime temperatures fluctuate from -25 to -5 degrees Celsius. Coldest days can go as low as -35. This is the best time to try our Winter Trail Run because the trees are covered with snow and the landscape is magical. This is also the best time to try our Ice Run but bear in mind that Ice Run is possible only when the ice is thick enough.
Spring (April, May) in Rovaniemi is the time when the sun starts to feel warmer, snow starts to melt and ice starts to break. Typical daytime temperatures fluctuate from 5 to 10 degrees Celsius. This is the best time to try our Custom Run Lapland.
In the summer (June, July, August) you can experience the midnight sun from late May to early July. Temperatures go as high as 25 degrees Celsius. This is the perfect time to try our City Tour Run, Local Run and Custom Run Rovaniemi.
Autumn (September, October, November) is the time when the first northern lights appear and the autumn leaf colour paints the landscape. Temperatures fluctuate from -10 to 10 degrees Celsius. We recommend Custom Run Lapland, Custom Run Rovaniemi and Local Run because autumn is a perfect time to do nature-related activities.
