If you regret that your winter has not seen any snow, perhaps you may want to consider a trip to Northern Finland. The European country centered between Sweden, Russia, Norway, and Estonia, often gets feet of snow. This is especially true of Finland’s city of Rovaniemi because it lies at the Arctic Circle.
“In and around Rovaniemi, the Arctic is a fluffy white playground and snow is a source of pleasure. Unlike home, I heard nobody complaining about the weather; in fact they were hoping for more snow,” says Kathryn Lemmon about her trip to city Nordic city.
One key highlight about a trip to Rovaniemi is the chance to ride in a reindeer sleigh. There are over 200,000 reindeer in Finland. Between the herds of reindeer and traditional elfish looking Lapland costumes, you may feel like have walked into Santa’s personal village.
