8. Visit Elf’s Farmyard
A visit to the Elf’s Farmyard in Rovaniemi is another winter-specific activity that attracts plenty of tourists during a trip to Lapland in December-January. It’s a traditional atmosphere in the Santa Claus village where tourists get to experience all sort of traditional things related to Lapland and Sami culture. At Elf’s farmyard, you get to see reindeer, sheep, goat, rabbits, hens and a rooster. Tourists can also pet the animals, take a photo with them and also learn more about their everyday activities.
It’s an interesting and heart-warming experience altogether. Wintertime here is even better because the tourists get to witness the Cross-country skiing in Rovaniemi. At the farm, the tourists also have an opportunity to cross Arctic Circle by putting on the traditional Lappish wooden skis. Kota is also used by tourists to make a campfire and enjoy a barbecue.
