Average time to visit
Winter is the perfect time to visit Finnish Lapland. The winter temperatures can vary anywhere between 0°C and -40°C. The average temperature in January is -14°C, but the cold is not biting because the air is dry. There can be as much as one metre of snow and it usually lasts until May. There is potential for Northern Lights viewing throughout the winter months.

It is hard to find truly authentic Christmas accommodation in Lapland. However, the Rovaniemi Christmas Chalets completely epitomize the storybook concept of a magical log cabin in the woods. Decorated both inside and outside with Christmas embelleshment, these chalets provide a haven of relaxation and cosiness after a busy day out in the snow.
Situated in an idyllic winter wonderland landscape, yet with such close proximity to the city centre, they offer best of both worlds in terms of location and proximity to the exciting activities on offer in Finnish Lapland.

Ice fishing in Finnish Lapland
Learn a brand new skill during your time in Lapland - the traditional art of ice fishing. You'll learn how to break through the ice to reach the water below, as well as how to set up your fishing rod with the hopes of making a big catch!
