Christmas is a magical time of the year and there is no place more magical than Lapland, where dreams really do come true

With scenery which is simple yet majestic prepare to be spellbound by the beauty of this part of Finland.  Lapland is a sparsely populated area with only 3.6% of the population living in the region which borders  Sweden, Norway, Russia and the Baltic Sea and is home to the Sami people as well the home of Santa Claus.   It is also known for its vast subarctic wilderness, ski resorts and natural phenomena including the midnight sun and the Northern Lights.

However, it’s not only at Christmas that you can enjoy the Lapland experience, Lapland winter holidays offer an Arctic playground where it’s possible to explore the twinkling landscape by dog sled, reindeer sleigh or snowmobile and the regional capital of Rovaniemi, located on the Arctic Circle, makes for a magical family holiday.

After dark you can search for the northern lights, known locally as ‘fox fires’ –  according to Sami legend these are caused by a fox running across the Arctic fells lighting up the sky with sparks flying from its tail. In Finnish Lapland, nature’s light show can be seen on roughly 200 nights a year – experience aurora hunting by snowmobile or husky sled, or stay warm in a glass ceilinged igloo and watch the flickering ribbons of colour from the comfort of your own bed.

During the dark winter months here, with barely a sunrise, the Northern Lights in Finland appear quite regularly, and other peak seasons include February through to March and September through to October. Swirling shades of blue, green, and red are most common when it comes to the Northern Lights in Finland, and clear nights are best for viewing them.
