Discover the Magic of Finnish Lapland: Your Ultimate Wellness Holiday Destination

    There is something very special and calming about the nature of Finnish Lapland. Many people say that Northern Lapland is one of the best wellness travelling destinations in the world.

    Keep reading to find out why.

    The Arctic Nature

    Finnish Lapland has vast wilderness areas that vary from pine and birch forests to treeless tundra. The lakes and rivers flow with incredibly clean and clear water, and in Lapland you can breathe the cleanest air in the world.

    The changing of the seasons is almost magical – from winter’s sometimes extremely cold temperatures, thick snowfall and of course the amazing Northern Lights, to spring when the light seems to increase in a blink of an eye and nature wakes up to a summer when the sun does not set at all.

    Finally, as the summer turns into autumn, nature is painted with bright autumn colors. It is difficult to pick your favourite, it is best to experience them all!

    The Quietness and Space

    Lapland is vast. There are only but two inhabitants per square kilometer in Lapland. Lapland has Finland’s biggest National parks and one of the biggest inhabited wilderness areas of Europe.

    There is space for everyone to enjoy the quietness of nature and Every man’s rights ensure that everyone is able to enjoy it responsibly – whether you want to take a short stroll in the forest or a week long hike through a national park.

    In Finland, the wilderness huts are well taken care of and for everyone to use free of charge.

    Unique Destinations

Long daylight hours make you feel more energetic, and it is not unusual to see people doing the gardening late at night!
