1. Start the day with forest fruits
Forest fruits are a Rovanimei breakfast specialty. Prepare for a jam-packed day by indulging in cakes and jams made from blackberries, blueberries or raspberries. Drink forest fruit tea that will warm you up as you take a break from sledding down the snowy slopes.
2. Try the pea soup Hernekeitto with mustard
Hernekeitto, a type of pea soup, once ensured the wartime survival of Finnish soldiers. Hernekeitto, which is even tastier when mustard is added, is usually served on Thursdays.
3. Experience the Lapland Barbeque
On the reindeer and Husky sleigh tour, make sure to taste the fish and meat cooked on wood at the special Laponian barbeque.
4. Try the Salmon and Herring fish
Rovaniemi is home to a must-try Northern European herring and salmon dish. We recommend that you eat herring fish with onions and pickles. A hearty salmon soup will warm your bones during the winter.
