TRIP LOCATION

WHERE YOU'RE GOING

Lapland is a remote, relatively untouched territory located in the Arctic Circle that offers one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. It’s impossible not to be taken in by the natural beauty of the pristine blankets of snow that cover the pine forests and frozen lakes. The temperatures in peak winter can reach very frosty temperatures—some way below zero—so it’s best to wrap up warm and keep yourself busy. Fortunately, there is plenty to keep you occupied whether you’re wanting to get active or simply relax.

DID YOU KNOW

  • Lapland makes a third of Finland's total area, yet only 3.6% of the population lives here
  • There are no polar bears in Lapland, but the largest population of brown bears in Finland live here
  • Santa Claus lives in Lapland
  • There are almost as many reindeer as there are people in Lapland

"Naturally everyone wants to see the Northern Lights but there are no guarantees. Lapland is well worth visiting regardless which is worth remembering if you aren't lucky enough to see them."

Host Tips

TRIP TIPS

Pack Appropriately

Be sure to check the weather forecast before you travel as, unsurprisingly it can get very cold in the arctic circle, it was -32 on our last visit! So proper winter gear is likely to be required.

tips image

Aurora Borealis App

There are various apps which monitor the Aurora Borealis. We provide the best for you, it is surprisingly accurate so it will let you know in advance if the lights are going to appear.

tips image

Try Avoid the Full Moon

Clear, dark skies are the perfect conditions for the Northern Lights to appear, so avoid full moons if possible. The full moon won't restrict you seeing the lights, but it won't be as clear.

tips image

Local Prices

Scandinavia is expensive and Finland is no exception. It's best to acknowledge this and avoid comparing the value of everything to what you'd receive back home.
