Where Finland tour Lapland Winter Magic with 50 Degrees North
Known for its Aurora Borealis, reindeers and Santa himself, Finnish Lapland is a magical wonderland of family fun. Located 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, Äkäslompolo village is your home for this six-day winter adventure. Find a nook in your cosy, fire-lit cabin to observe the night sky in Lapland with no light or noise pollution. It’s hard not to be awed by the crisp beauty of the night in the Arctic wilderness, with the bright colours of the Northern Lights dancing above. Spend a day among Santa’s antler-adorned friends at a local reindeer farm and learn about the indigenous Sami culture and life in the Arctic. There are also huskies, ice-fishing, snowmobiling and a visit to the Snow Village in store. Flash forward to Elämänluukku to experience the Arctic Crossing Ceremony, and for little ones asking, “Where’s Santa?”, 50 Degrees North has something very special lined up… a private visit with Santa himself! What better way to get your tykes behaving well enough to stay on the nice list? fiftydegreesnorth.com
