Welcome to Finnish Lapland, more touristy and less expensive than neighboring Swedish Lapland. A trip to Lapland takes some planning, so here’s our advice on how to organize your trip, where to see Santa’s village, how to find inexpensive all-inclusive packages at Christmas or in February for a stay in Lapland, where to go snowmobiling and dog sledding, when to leave, what to pack and what temperatures to expect! You’ll love this region, land of the Sami and the reindeer, with its picture-postcard landscapes, its northern lights, its many saunas, its kotas, its ice fishing, its peace and quiet, its charming and unusual hotels. You’ll understand why I fell in love with this place!
