Sautéed reindeer is a speciality from Finnish Lapland. The reindeers are raised by the Sami as they have done for generations. The meat is very lean and low in fat. Make sure you try at least one reindeer dish while you are here. /Anna, air hostess
World War II left only a handful of buildings standing. The rebuilding of Rovaniemi was largely planned by famed Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. Besides planning, he designed a number of buldings. Get a map from tourist information and ask them to point them out. Take your own Alvar Aalto tour of Rovaniemi! /Massimo
Week-long culture festival in Rovaniemi. Even though it's an international folklore festival, I recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to experience the artists from the Lapland and Sami cultures. /Henrietta
