Discover the Sami culture and sparkling landscape of lapland with Boundless Journeys
Finland’s northernmost region is a vast and largely undeveloped frontier straddling the Arctic Circle. For those bewitched by the mythical white wonderlands of Narnia or who feel gleeful at the thought of the real North Pole, Lapland is about as close as it gets. It is often described as Europe’s last great wilderness, and for the Sámi, the indigenous people of northern Scandinavia, it has sustained them since prehistoric times.
More than just a storybook landscape to gaze upon, Lapland is a winter playground that begs to be explored. Sit back and relax on a sleigh ride pulled by reindeer, delight in the thrill of riding a snowmobile, learn to steer a dogsled, and warm up in the crisp air as you set off on a kicksled, Nordic skis, or snowshoes. Discover the Sámi way of life and maybe learn a few of their 1,000 words to describe reindeer—of which there is a greater population than people in the region! At day’s end, relax in a traditional sauna before peeking out to spot the Northern Lights dancing in the dark skies.
