Finland has been named by Lonely Planet as one of the world’s top countries for travellers in 2017. Head to Lapland if you are looking for a true Finnish experience where you will be exposed to a full range of new experiences from pure wilderness to sauna evenings. The Finnish love the outdoors and many head to their cottages both winter and summer which is why the infamous ‘Kota’ becomes such an integral part of life in Finland along with smoke saunas, reindeers, the Sami people and fresh food prepared on crackling fires.
In the summer these Finnish hideouts are an oasis of relaxation, with saunas and wild swimming part of every day life. The winter brings its own unique activities such as skiing, ice-swimming, sledding in a beautiful rolling landscape of frozen lakes, snow laden trees and a blanket of snow and ice as far as the eye can see.
Lapland holidays are uniquely flexible and designed to suit your interests. Organize your own day trips in the local area, across the frozen lake on skis or snowshoes. For more speed and adventure go on an organized snowmobile tour or a husky safari suitable for the whole family. Lunch is regularly eaten outside in front of a crackling fire on day expeditions and at the end the day the relaxing heat of the sauna with the northern lights blazing outside reminds you of the beauty of true wilderness and a simpler life.
