Lapland is situated in the northernmost area of Finland with the Capital Rovaniemi being the most magical place for the young (and not so young) to visit the home of Father Christmas. Let Holiday Hamster make all the arrangements for you to meet him; an experience children especially will cherish forever.

But Lapland is more than that, so spend some more time there where you can experience the remarkable features of the region. Experience the extraordinary phenomena of the Midnight Sun; with 24-hour daylight in the summer months, contrasting with the winter when the sun is not seen for many a day. Marvel at the Aurora Borealis (Northern lights) where nature sets the sky alight with amazing moving colours. Enjoy the ski resorts or go ice skating; hike across the Arctic Circle; taking in the ruggedness and beauty of the wild and natural landscape. Experience the thrill of a husky ride, take a relaxing reindeer sledge or drive a snowmobile and marvel at the endless pine forests which are so beautiful they will take your breath away. The unique opportunity to go Ice fishing on Lake Inari, or panning for gold, having a traditional Sauna would be unforgettable experiences. Perhaps visiting an amethyst mine; where you can learn about the history of these gemstones and even dig for your own souvenir amethyst, would be would appeal or why not take the chance to make a unique personal souvenir from reindeer antler.

Why not make your visit to Lapland even more special by staying overnight in a glass igloo, with breathtaking views of the night sky? Holiday Hamster will be pleased to discuss any of these aspects of Lapland which appeal and will go that extra mile to tailor the holiday to suit your particular preferences.
