Our Film Friendly accommodation and other services for film crews

We are part of House of Lapland's Film Friendly network. We have participated in House of Lapland's and the Finnish Lapland Film Commission's Film Friendly training. We know the basic needs of the film industry, and we are committed serving productions smoothly, efficiently and reliably.

Welcome to film in Finnish Lapland, at the Arctic Circle – here in Rovaniemi you can experience all the four seasons of the year!

Rovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland and the official hometown of Santa Claus, is located at the Arctic Circle. With its old traditions and amazing variety of attractions, the city is a fabulous holiday and conference destination.

Rovaniemi can be reached by plane, by train and by car. The distance between Rovaniemi and Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is 830 km - about one hour by plane.

Accommodation services

Hotel Santa Claus is located at the heart of Rovaniemi, 15 min from airport and 5 min from railway station. It is a warm hotel of high standard, and offers easy access to a wide range of cultural points. Despite the central location, the unique Lappish nature is only a stone’s throw away. The hotel is also ideal for incentives and special interest groups, holiday makers and people travelling for business.

The 170 rooms of the hotel offer a wide range of accommodation alternatives. The room types are standard, superior, deluxe and suites. Some of the rooms are equipped with sauna and balcony, and some rooms can be connected with each other. All the rooms are twin rooms but can also be used as single rooms. Use of the sauna department and buffet breakfast are included into the prices. The hotel is non-smoking hotel.

For a film crew we can book for example one or two of the accommodation floors privately: there are different room sizes and room types on the same floor. This arrangement ensures privacy and quietness for the crew.

Restaurant services

Special meal times can be arranged for film crews in our restaurants, and meals can also be served on the conference floors, where the film crew can have their offices. As there are various restaurants in the same building, many different kinds of foods (à la carte, bar, grill, snack etc.) can be arranged.

Meeting and conference facilities

There are 13 meeting rooms of different sizes (16 m² – 446 m²), offering a wide range of alternatives for various occasions. Modern meeting equipment is available in each meeting room. Conference floor (-1st floor) can be booked as private.

On the conference floor, the film crew can have their offices, for example. Three of the meeting rooms can be joined together to a big office of 250.5 m². Filming equipment can be moved to the offices via garage (reachable with a big truck).

Other services

WIFI is available within the whole hotel; the internet point is located in the lobby.

There are two car parking sites: one on the opposite side of the street, and the other in a warm garage in the basement, including 55 places, a self-service car washing point and a charging point for electric cars. Extra electricity can be placed in the garage. Max height of vehicles on the -2nd floor is 2.1 meters, but the -1st floor is accessible for much higher vehicles such as trucks. There is a lift from -2nd floor to the other floors. There is also a direct connection from the garage to the conference floor (-1st floor). Cars and busses can stop in front of the hotel (max 6 busses at same time).
