The region that lies furthest north in Finland, Lapland is famous for its wonderful snowy landscapes and largely untouched wilderness. It's full of magic for children, as Santa Claus is known for making an appearance here when he's not out delivering presents on the most special day of the year. Holidays to Lapland aren't just a dream come true for little ones though, as there's plenty to enchant everyone in this magical part of Finland. Escape to what feels like another world with a holiday to Hetta. This charming village is the perfect introduction to what beautiful Lapland is all about.
Hetta is a secret treasure, tucked away in Finland's northernmost region of Lapland. Picture a beautiful village in a winter setting, like one you'd find on a festive card, and pretty houses topped with a thick layer of frost.
The main features in Hetta are the surrounding forests, picturesque mountains and huge lakes, with the colourful roofs of wooden huts hidden by crisp white snow. Your feet will crunch with every step and you'll leave footprints behind you as you walk through the cabin-lined lanes. These stunning log-cabin villages are particularly pretty and many are available as holiday lodgings.
Hetta, Lapland, holidays will give you the opportunity to learn more about the people and customs of this region. Enjoy a traditional Lappish ceremony inside a tepee-style hut, known as a Kota, or visit the church and museum to learn about the way of life. As the village hasn't been commercialised or affected by outside influences from other countries, there's a lovely traditional look and homely feel everywhere you go.
