The Christmas spirit arguably doesn’t get any stronger than in Lapland, the reputed homeland of Santa Claus. Whether you’re naughty or nice, the friendly elves of Santa’s Village will show you around the post office (every postcard sent from this charming place will be marked with a special stamp), the reindeer’s quarters and more. Even if your visit falls in the other seasons, there’s lots to see all year round. Lapland is well known for its majestic natural scenery, including the expansive Lake Inari where you’ll find perch, pike fish and rainbow trout biting at your lines. That’s definitely not all the wildlife you will see either — Lapland’s indigenous wolves and brown bears roam the frozen forests. If you’re really lucky, you may also be able to marvel at the beautiful aurora borealis or northern lights, the dramatic green hued glow painted across the sky. If you’re planning a trip to this magical city, do check out the list before for some great accommodation options to keep you warm and toasty indoors.
