What We Love About Finnish Lapland

The Finnish Lapland is home to vast wilderness and some of the most unique cultures. While it experiences extreme climate conditions, the Finnish Lapland remains as one of the best viewing spots for the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun. Apart from that, it is also home to our favorite childhood character - Santa Claus! Explore the wilderness and catch one of nature’s most spectacular phenomenons in a Northern Lights tour. Learn the skills of the natives in an ice fishing experience and fish for your own meal. If you’ve been nice all year, pay Santa a visit at the the magical Santa Claus Village in the Arctic Circle!
