Temperatures in Rovaniemi in winter vary between -5 °C and -35 °C. It is important to dress properly in order to enjoy the outdoor activities. If you follow our recommendations you will be comfortable regardless of the temperature! Please remember the most important thing is having layers of clothing – they do not need to be thick but there needs to be several of them. Also, make sure your hair is always dry before leaving from the hotel.
Your own clothes:
- Long-sleeved thermal underwear
- Socks: cotton socks to skin, woolen socks on top of cotton ones
- Trousers: loose-fitting, fleece, cotton or similar
- Shirt: loose-fitting, high collar, cotton or similar
- Sweater: wool, fleece or similar
It is also important to dress your children accordingly for the weather.
Have a look at How to Dress for Winter for a guide on dressing correctly.
On our safaris we provide the following clothing:
- Woolen socks
- Winter boots: at least one size bigger than your usual size. Air in the boot keeps your feet warm.
- Woolen scarf
- Thermal overall: one size bigger than your usual size
This clothing can be worn on top of your own winter jacket and pants if the weather is very cold.
On the snowmobile safari you will also receive fleece balaclava and a helmet.
We understand that many visitors might not have the right kind of equipment for the snow conditions and minus degrees we experience daily here in Lapland, so we are happy to rent you a comprehensive package of winter clothing with which you’ll be able to withstand and enjoy the magical winter of Lapland.
The equipment can be fitted on and picked up at our office in Santa Claus Village or delivered to your hotel (extra fees will apply).

If you have booked a transfer by snowmobiles or a similar service from the airport or otherwise have a need for switching to our winter clothing right upon arrival, we can arrange these to the airport and reserve a dressing room for your use.
