Think of Lapland and you might conjure up an image of a beautiful winter wonderland, a visit to Santa Claus and a reindeer sleigh ride. You’d be correct, of course, as this is the home of Mr Claus and his reindeer (a visit to the Santa Claus Village is a must), but Lapland should be for life and not just for Christmas. Located in northern Europe, largely within the Arctic Circle in northern Finland, Norway, Sweden and parts of northern Russia, our Lapland hostels give you a chance to discover the beauty of this land of the Midnight Sun. In the summer go hiking, canoeing or cycling among a backdrop of fells, lakes and trees; and in the winter wrap up warm and enjoy the endless snow, go cross-country skiing, snowmobiling or reindeer or husky sledding. Also don’t miss the spectacular light show that is the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).
