Ounasvaara, Finland

Ski Resort (60m197ft to 200m656ft). Rated: 3/5 (from 6 ratings)

The capital of Lapland and close to the Arctic Circle, Rovaniemi's most famous resient is Santa Claus, who lives 10km out of town and welcomes visitors. However his popularity may be overtaken by the world's most northerly McDonalds, also located here.
