Where is Lapland ?
Lapland is a vast European region located in north of the Arctic circle which stretches across areas of Finland, Sweden, Norway and Kola Peninsula in Russia. Lapland is a huge region, which covers 38,752 square miles; this region is as big as Belgium, the Netherlands, and Switzerland combined ! Lapland (in Sami: Sápmi, in Finnish: Lappi, in Swedish: Sameland / Lappland) is also the sacred heart of the Sami homeland, the last indigenous people of Europe. During the winter season Lapland’s landscape is transformed into a winter wonderland of frozen lakes and white snow-covered countryside. Long dark nights are illuminated by Christmas lights making it the perfect location to enjoy a magical winter holiday and visit Santa’s home in Rovaniemi, « The Santa Claus Village »… With its abundance of unspoiled nature, natural beauty and ski resorts, Lapland is a perfect destination for a family adventure to visit Santa or a nature break to unwind in the incredible snow coated scenery.
