Visitors to Lapland have access to an unlimited amount of unique experiences during the winter season, even during the days with no dawn when there is only a short glimpse of daylight.


Northern Lights Hunting

For up to 51 days the sun does not rise above the horizon in Lapland; however, the sky lights up at night with the Northern Lights, appearing about 200 nights a year in Lapland. The best time to spot the beautiful phenomenon is about an hour or two before midnight


Husky Safaris

Available all over Lapland in holiday resorts and populated areas, husky sled rides take visitors through the area’s glimmering countryside. Safaris can last from short sprints to adventures lasting as long as 10 days and nights. Many overnight stays occur in wilderness cabins equipped with saunas.



Visitors have plenty of snowmobiling services and marketed routes to choose from in Lapland. Several snowmobile routes are sprinkled throughout the area, covering thousands of miles over highlands, through forests and over frozen waterways. The duration varies from a couple of hours to several days.


Cross-Country Skiing

Lapland is Finland’s best area to enjoy cross-country skiing, offering an endless variety of well-maintained trail networks for both beginners and professional skiers. Many resorts and companies offer guided skiing trips, with some lasting several days with overnight stays in cabins in the forest.


Reindeer Sleigh Rides

One of the best ways to experience Lapland’s pristine wintry landscape is via reindeer sleigh rides, a popular mode of transportation in the winter before snowmobiles existed. Along with an exciting sleigh ride through the snow, visitors will also learn about local reindeer livelihood and the animal’s significance to the culture with a visit to a reindeer farm.
