Finland in winter is a magical experience. A scenic winter wonderland located deep inside the Arctic Circle. Blanketed in snow from December to April, reindeer far outnumber people here, and snow-laden trees form bizarre sculptures in a vast and silent landscape. At night the mesmerising Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) can shimmer in the moonlight (not guaranteed – unfortunately not even Spice can do that!). By day there are exhilarating reindeer, husky and snowmobile safaris.
For some visitors the months of December and January are the most evocative, when the blue twilight of 'Kaamos' envelops the arctic landscape and days pass in a palette of rose-coloured dawns and dusks. Days in the Arctic Circle are shortest from early December to mid-January.
