Flourishing with nature and luxury accommodation, Finnish Lapland is the ultimate winter playground for families in search of Christmas spirit. Here, the festive season is bursting with lively Christmas markets and endless winter activities such as husky sleigh rides, reindeer safaris, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. As Europe’s ‘last wilderness’, expect a true winter wonderland made up of untouched nature, glistening frozen lakes and craggy mountains topped with snow.

Witness One Of The Seven Natural Wonders of The World

Finnish Lapland offers countless experiences for those wishing to witness the northern lights. From its abundance of glass igloos, where guests can sit back and relax, to the more adventurous escapades deep in the Arctic Circle, the region is hands-down one of the most astonishing places to catch a glimpse!

Discover the Magical Arctic Circle

Adding a touch of magic to the region, crossing the iconic Arctic Circle is a once-in-a-life time experience that many people hope to check off their bucket list. Running 66 degrees north of the Equator, the circle marks the southernmost latitude where the sun can stay below or above the horizon for 24 hours – these phenomena are known as the Midnight Sun in summer and the Polar Night in the Winter.

Much like the spectacle of the Northern Lights and the buzz of the Midnight Sun, the Polar Night is a sight to behold. Visit in December, when midday lasts for a few hours, to discover the unspoilt Arctic landscape with the deep, dark sky as its backdrop. Or check out the Polar Night Light Festival, hosted by Ruka Ski Resort, which lights up the night from mid-January to the beginning of February.

Experience The Iconic Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi

A cluster of charming log cabins hidden among the snow-laden landscape; The Santa Claus Village is a glittery wonderland where the spirit of Christmas comes alive year-round. While seeing Santa is the main attraction, visitors can embark on a husky safari, dash across the Arctic Circle in a reindeer-driven sleigh and revel in the wholesome festive fun.
