Highlights of Finnish Lapland

There is a variety of amazing activities to do in Finnish Lapland in both summer and winter. Depending on which area you choose to visit there are some really unique options for both accommodation and the experiences you have whilst there!

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.

From relaxing in a Finnish snow sauna beneath the Northern Lights to hiking through the scenery under the Midnight Sun there is plenty to do and see whenever you visit!

Climate

Finnish Lapland for the most part lies above the Arctic Circle and therefore enjoys an Arctic climate with summer temperatures averaging 14℃ and an average winter temperature of -10℃. In the winter, temperatures can drop as low as -25℃ so it is important to be prepared for the cold!

Geography

Finnish Lapland is characterised by its Northern position, its boreal forests and lakes and its low population density. The Lappish area of Finland covers approximately one third of Finland’s total area and is a beautiful mix of plateaus, lone but unique looking mountains and vast tundras which all make for some impressive photo opportunities!

Plants and Animals

Finnish Lapland is abundant in wildlife and plants. The reindeer are the main attraction in the area, at the heart of daily life for all who live there. You’ll experience how these creatures are used in all aspects of life for the Sami people. The lakes and rivers of Finnish Lapland are also full of many fish species, so it’s an excellent destination for ice fishing too!
