Doesn’t Lapland sound like a festive fairytale?Away back during the Middle Ages Lapland was better known as No-Man’s Land, but should you venture to Lapland for the holidays, it boasts several national parks worth visiting. Abisko, Muddus, Sarek and Stora Sjofallet are among many of the gorgeous parks in this unique country.
Vacationers can expect to visit Santa Claus and families get to visit Santa in his log cabin home, rather than in a busy shopping centre. Rides in wooden sleighs, hot drinks made of Arctic berries, scavenger hunts for reindeer tracks and sumptuous Lapland cuisine are among many of the treats in store for your family in Lapland this Christmas.
