Zip through the frozen landscapes of Lapland complete with icy ponds and glaciers as a team of dogs pulls your sleigh at fast speeds that make you feel as though you are flying over the ice. This experience can be enjoyed by people of all ages and is a great way to really get to know Lapland.

Snowboarding

Adrenaline junkies will find a wide range of places in Lapland to get their adrenaline pumping with a day of snowboarding. While not for the faint of heart, this activity is fairly easy to learn and special instructors can be found at major snowboarding resorts to give lessons to people who are new to the sport.

The Northern Lights

Watching the Northern Lights transform the sky with rich colours is an experience that should not be missed while visiting Lapland. The best time to witness this enchanting natural phenomenon is between November and March, when the days are darkest in Lapland and visibility is particularly good.

Enjoy a Romantic Sleigh Ride

Couples are sure to enjoy the experience of taking a romantic sleigh ride pulled by reindeer. This is the perfect way to explore the stunning scenery of Lapland in comfort and style and it is possible to combine the experience with a picnic lunch in the countryside to really get the most out of this enchanting experience.

Cross Country Skiing

This is another exciting way to explore all that Lapland has to offer. One of the great things about cross country skiing is that visitors will be able to explore at their own pace and plan routes that include routes to some of Lapland’s enchanting traditional villages.

Lapland is a place for adventure and pinch-yourself moments. Aside from the plethora of activities and sports on offer, it is a magical part of the world begging to be explored.
