    Hi there,
    I spent a week in Finland in Nov and it was fabulous! We did not go to or stay in Rovaniemi. We went further north up to Saariselkä. We stayed at Holiday Club Saariselka in a condo which was fantastic and then at Polar Aurora Cabins which was also wonderful. If you get that far up both a great. I am glad others are making it up to Northern Finland – Lapland is stunning! Nikki
