Winter in Lapland

kittila_destination_carteThe most significant winter moments in Lapland are undoubtedly the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) which occur almost every night from September to March. Winter temperatures can drop to -30°C, so be sure to cover yourself when you're hunting the Northern Lights.

You cannot visit Lapland without discovering the local animals. Reindeer and husky sleigh rides are the most popular winter sports in Lapland: the speed of the reindeer rides is fairly moderate, which makes them suitable for anyone;

Don’t let the Arctic cold scare you away – the sauna is also an important element of Finnish culture, and you can always warm up there. The sauna is a place for physical and spiritual cleansing, and the Finnish ritual is the best way to enjoy it.

Give yourself a good steam in the hot sauna, followed by a quick dip in an icy lake or a roll in the snow!

Laissez-vous porter dans la vapeur du sauna avant de vous baigner rapidement dans un lac glacé ou de vous rouler dans la neige !
