Things to Do in Finland
The snowy wilderness allows for some truly epic experiences and things to do in Finland. This is the place to go on a snowmobile safari, a magical and exhilarating way to travel this landscape or for a slower pace try the natural beauty of husky sledding where you will learn the commands on how to mush the group as you travel through the snowy wilderness on your comfortable sled. Whilst in Lapland no visit would be complete without an unforgettable private visit to see where Santa's loyal companions live, followed by a magical reindeer sleigh ride through the snow-clad forest. And of course whilst in the Artic circle, seeking the mesmerising Norther Lights is a must, with your private guide head off on snowmobile, set up a cosy fire and watch the beauty dance in the sky above you, an experience like no other.
With ice fishing, hiking, tobogganing and snowshoeing, there is plenty throughout for everyone to enjoy. This playground comes alive in the summer months, with lush vistas, fresh trails to hike and lakes to discover.
