Visiting Lapland: the practical guide

Lapland (or Sápmi in the Sámi language) stretches over four countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola peninsula of Russia. Lapland is the ultimate winter travel destination ! This dreamy part of the world has it all… Nature is everywhere, sometimes spectacular or simply beautiful. In Lapland, it takes only a few minutes to forget the frenzy of daily life and to plunge into a peaceful, stillness and pristine nature. A trip to Lapland is an opportunity to breathe the pure northern air, to live in communion with nature or “Friluftsliv”, to contemplate the wild landscapes, to slide on a dog sled under the northern lights or to settle down in a cottage by the water and relax in a sauna in the middle of the polar night. Lapland is also an opportunity to discover the culture of the Sami, a nomadic tribe from the far north who are today the only indigenous people still present in Europe. If you have dreamt of walking in the footsteps of the explorer-adventurer Mike Horn in the snowbound forests or if you are just a fan of the Olivier Truc detective novels and of the Lapland Reindeer Police, Lapland is made for you.

A black and white portrait of Celine and her comic traveler alter-ego C-Ludik.

Hi ! My name is C-Ludik and I’m the person who runs this creative space. Welcome to ‘Tween here and there, a travel blog that shares awesome destinations, stunning photographs and captivating travel stories from around the world. No two landscapes are ever the same because of a different light, different conditions… whether it's a new or an old place. That’s what I love about nature and landscape photography. As the famous Ibn Battuta traveler said: « traveling – it leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller ». He’s right ! Behind the photographer, I see myself more as a storyteller. When I arrive on a place, I try to respond to what I see and tell the story of the land. If you love travel, exploring new places, and seeing more of this beautiful world then you'll be right at home here. ‘Tween here and there is the travel inspiration for those with full-time jobs and for those in search of any off-the-beaten track destinations around the world, near and far.
