Finnish Lapland tailor-made holidays
Covering an area roughly the size of Portugal, Finnish Lapland is a vast area of wilderness, home to Sami Reindeer herders and brown bears. It is a landscape of legendary tales and the dazzling beauty of the midnight sun.
The only indigenous people in Europe, many of the Sami still live a traditional lifestyle on the tundra, making this the perfect region to find out more about the local lore and traditions. Alternatively travel the wilderness with a Sami guide on dog sledging or snow mobile trips.
Lying partly within the Arctic Circle, this is also a popular area with the locals for skiing and is home to over 70 ski resorts. The resorts are mainly small, local affairs, interspersed with larger complexes - though cross-country skiing is enjoyed region wide.
This is one of the most relaxing spots in Finland, whether you're engaging in activities on the slopes, watching the Northern Lights, or enjoying the scenery from a cosy log cabin, the stark beauty of Finish Lapland arises from your proximity to the untamed wilderness.
