The basics

Despite its close proximity to Rovaniemi, the Suomu Ski Resort—set atop the 1,345-foot-high (410-meter-high) Suomutunturi fell in Kemijärvi—is among one of the least developed and less crowded ski resorts in Finland. Its tranquil surroundings and laid-back atmosphere, however, have been renowned among locals since it opened in 1965. Located on the shores of Lake Kemijärvi right on the Arctic Circle, Suomu is surrounded by dense pine forests, rolling fells, cozy log cabins, and reindeer farms—an ideal destination for both winter and summer outdoor activities. Suomu is also just east of Rovaniemi, within striking distance of the city’s famed Santa Claus Village and Arktikum museum.
