The Scandic Polar Hotel is located in the centre of Rovaniemi, the Official Home of Santa Claus.
The airport is only 10km away and a direct local bus connection provided by 'AirportBus' drops you directly at your hotel (bus departure from outside Terminal for €7pp).
Santa Village (only 9km from the centre) can easily be reached by local bus or the Santa Express bus. Entry to Santa Village is free and Santa Claus welcomes families in his home year-round (free of charge). But there is plenty more to see and do at Santa Claus Village*
The Scandic Polar Hotel is beside Rovaniemi's Sampokeskus shopping centre. It has a wide range of rooms including allergy-friendly rooms and special family rooms that sleep 3 and 4 people. Each room comes equipped with a TV, hairdryer, wifi and a seating area. The restaurant is where your buffet breakfast is served each morning (included in the price) and in the evening, you can try their Pub Pisto which is a relaxed place to enjoy some good food, drinks and even a spot of karaoke.
*Please note that Santa Village is open all year, however, some facilities and activities are only available during certain periods, mostly depending on snow conditions. The companies at Santa Claus Village & the excursion companies cannot guarantee when permanent snow cover will come or how long the snowy winter lasts. It’s all up to nature.
