Visit Santa Claus in the Winter Wonderland of Lapland
Lapland is a snow-covered winter wonderland located in the far north of Finland, close to the Arctic Circle. Given the familiar association of this snowy Finnish province with a certain Mr. S. Claus, many people choose the festive period as their ideal time to visit Lapland. Christmas in Lapland will certainly require that you pack your thermal underwear and warmest reindeer print jumpers. December brings with it the coldest temperatures in Lapland, when thermometers plummet into double minus figures. Despite this, during the magical time of Christmas, Lapland holidays offer the unique opportunity to visit Santa Claus Village, where you can meet the big jolly fellow himself, along with his ever-helpful elves and enjoy an exciting underground amusement area called Santapark. Lapland trips also offer the chance to see some absolutely breathtaking scenery, especially on thrilling snowmobile safaris or on dog sledding trips, the like of which you would usually only see on the front of Christmas cards.
