To keep in mind

Keep in mind that during Christmas all the accommodation facilities are much more expensive than during the rest of the year.

It is advisable to book well in advance, several months or even a year before.

Christmas decorations go on throughout the winter, if you go to Lapland during Carnival you will still find Santa Claus waiting for you.

Fun gifts to take home for friends can be found everywhere; very popular are elks, reindeers and bears printed woolen socks for adults and children.

A special delicacy is the “reindeer dropping“ licorice candy, found only at the reception-shop in the village of Santa Claus in Rovaniemi.

This guide shows you alternative places to visit, outside the classic routes.
