Icebreaker Cruise with Lunch and Ice Floating – A Must-Do Experience in Rovaniemi
Rovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland, is known for its magical winter wonderland scenery, northern lights, reindeer, and Santa Claus. It’s a must-visit destination in Finland, especially during winters when everything is coated with snow.
