Do you wish to celebrate Christmas in a grand manner this year? Then go for celebrating it in the home of Santa Claus i.e. Finnish Lapland, the winter wonderland. Snow everywhere, pine forests, and all sorts of adventurous activities such as reindeer safaris, snowshoe hiking, ice fishing, canoeing and a lot more makes Lapland holidays during winter the best experience.

Christmas is just a few days away! Do you wish to make this Christmas of yours a special and the most exciting one? Then how about celebrating Christmas in the homeland of Santa Claus in Lapland? Isn’t that a great idea! Imagine you are in the frozen winter wonderland surrounded by deep snow and pine forests above the Arctic Circle! Just let your inner kid out and play in the snow, create snow angels, snow men, do skiing and walk the forest in the snowshoes and make your Christmas the most exhilarating one.

What makes Christmas in Lapland so special is the contrasts i.e. here the twenty four hours of sunlight in summer precedes the dark days of the winter when the tranquility of the nature reigns and everything is silent. Whether you want to enjoy peacefulness or want to experience the wilderness of winter Lapland is the right and best choice! It is beautiful and natural landscape has an irresistible charm and you can experience this charm at its best during the passing of the seasons. Lapland also known as Sapmi area is a magical country and the place where Santa Claus enjoys the exceptional nature of this exotic destination.

Are you a hardcore adventurer and love to experiment and get out of the usual ways to have fun? Then Lapland has the ice igloos for you! Sami people build these every winter which melt as spring arrives. Also you can try out exciting safaris of sledges pulled by huskies or reindeers. And you wish for more adventure then take an icebreaker boat cruise or ride a horse across Oulanka National Park and enjoy nature the best by living in a forest cabin for a while. Then there is ice fishing, snowshoe hiking, snowmobile safari, reindeer farm tour, canoeing and cross country skiing and a lot more to make your Christmas celebrations even more thrilling and exciting.

But to make your Lapland holidays during winter a better experience and to avoid the harshness of the wild weather here you will need to carry the right clothes with you. One more interesting fact about Lapland is that as the winter months progress, the daily hours of sunlight also increases. In January where there is four hours of light a day, at the end of March the hours of light increase to twelve! And it is obvious as Santa needs longer time to deliver all the Christmas gifts and toys to the good kids!

Besides the nature, contrasts and weather there is something more special that makes Lapland a destination of dreams and that is the Northern lights hunting! Northern lights are the most beautiful decoration of Christmas! Coming to Lapland and missing out the magical and mysterious Northern lights is a complete loss! Witnessing the northern lights is a unique experience in life which no one should ever miss at any cost. These magical lights appear in more than two hundred nights a year in Finnish Lapland. Enjoy the spectacular luminosity, breathtaking landscapes and all sorts of activities in the Arctic Circle to fullest and make your Lapland holidays a holiday of lifetime.
