Why Go on Lapland Vacation?

This question might seem a bit silly because every child in the world knows that Lapland is one of the most magical places on Earth as it's home to the main winter magician who fancies red color, boasts a bushy white beard, and keeps several rather unusual pets. Of course, you've already guessed that we are talking about everyone's favorite grandpa, Santa Claus. And yes, the Lapland region's most famous sight is the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, but there are a lot of exciting things to do in the region that are not all about Christmas celebrations. Let's have a close look.

If you are a fan of active holidays (and winter sports in particular), the Lapland region is a perfect place for you. It's famous for its remarkable ski resorts, such as Levi, Yllas, Pyha, Big Wood, as well as provides excellent opportunities for ice skating, snowmobile tours, and even such authentic Lapland activities as husky dog and reindeer sledding.

Hiking is another great thing to add to your "must-do" list during a Lapland vacation. The region boasts incredible nature and offers several beautiful hiking routes, so you can go and see for yourself that it's not an exaggeration. The best places for this kind of activity are Urho Kekkonen and Rokua National Parks, boasting landscapes that have been shaped millions of years ago by the Ice Age.

One more interesting activity and one of the main reasons why thousands of peoplу choose Finland as a holiday destination is, of course, Northern Lights hunting. The Lapland region is a perfect setting to admire this incredible natural wonder, but that's not all to it. Why not enhance this magical experience by enjoying the phenomenon right from your hotel room? Yes, you've read it right. You can spice up your winter holiday by staying in one of the unique accommodations featured with glass walls/ceiling, allowing to observe the striking miracle of lights in the sky in warmth and comfort!
