A holiday in Lapland will uncover a beautiful winter wonderland for all ages. Lapland has sections in Finland, Norway and Sweden and is found in the Arctic Circle. Besides a variety of winter sports Lapland also offers a look into a Christmas wonderland complete with Santa, elves and reindeer.

Of the many Christmas themed activities you can meet Santa, take a ride with a reindeer, visit Santa's post office, see Santa's elves, and visit Rudolph. Once you have seen Santa get ready to enjoy the vast array of winter sports, snowmobiling, skiing, skating, dog-sledding, snowboarding, and more.

If you are interested in skiing then you should visit Lapland between the months of February and April when the ski conditions are at their best. Beside down hill or alpine skiing you cal also do hill skiing and cross country skiing. There are also enough resorts that you will not have to deal with any heavy crowds or long lines at the lift.

The scenery in the Artic circle is astounding and you will see things you never imagined. In Sweden, Lapland has a hotel made completely of ice, think of James Bond! The national parks also are some of the most beautiful in the world and a perfect spot to view the aurora borealis.

Finland offers accommodation in snow hotels, ice igloos and even a snow village. You can learn to drive your own team of huskies or try your hand at ice fishing. Saunas are also hugely popular in Finland so you too will be enjoying the luxury of your own sauna and complete relaxation.

Norwegian Lapland has an extremely diverse and extensive landscape, sitting at the same latitude of Siberia, Greenland and Alaska. Take an Orca safari to view those beautiful and powerful whales. Also experience more out on the water as you view the breathtaking majesty of the mountain ranges, plains and ocean.
