General Information

Finnish Lapland is a magical place to visit no matter what time of year. Despite being high in the Arctic Circle, Finnish Lapland is easily accessible with good flight connections. Lapland is Finland's northernmost region and is very sparsely populated so it is known for its vast wildernesses. The capital of Lapland, Rovaniemi, is the gateway to the region and extends up into the North to the homeland of the indigenous Sami people and into neighbouring countries Sweden and Norway.
