    Car Hire Rovaniemi

    Rovaniemi Car HireRovaniemi is unique in many ways. It is the administrative center of Lapland, home to the University of Lapland, is located just below the Arctic Circle, marks the northernmost reach of an icon of American poplar culture and is reputed to be the home of Santa Claus.

    Other towns that make the same claim of Santa citizenship are dismissed by Rovaniemians as there is such a large volume of letters that come into town for Santa himself! Although Santa's Village is only 8 km north of the city center a car hire is advised, it's in the Arctic Circle after all!

    Rovaniemi History for Travelers

    Artifacts suggest that there have been people in the Rovaniemi area since the Stone Age. The actual date of the founding of the town is lost to history and the first mention of the town by name was on a deed dated 7 September 1453. Rovaniemi was destroyed by the Germans at the end of World War II and as a result there are almost no buildings older than 1947. In planning the new design of the city Alvar Aalto included a bizarre tribute to a reindeer by laying out the roads in the shape of antlers, touching but impractical.
