Other Need-to-Know Information about Finland
The Lapland area of Finland is one of the most remote places in the entire world, but this quiet wilderness is still full of natural beauty. As it lies above the arctic circle, you will experience the unique seasons that belong to that area - no sun for days in the dead of winter, and sunlight at midnight during the summer. This area is well known for its outdoor recreation options, especially skiing during the winter. During the summer there are plenty of opportunities for trekking, hunting, and fishing, but beware of the hordes of mosquitos! Lapland is also home to the Sami, an indigenous population that survives by herding reindeer.
You likely know the capital of Finland (Helsinki), but may not have heard of the towns and cities of Lapland. There are a number of ski destinations - Levi, Suomu, Yllas, and others. The provincial capital of Rovaniemi is a likely arrival location for a Snowmobile tour in Finland, but commercial airports also exist in Enontekio, Ivalo (the furthest north in all of Finland), Kemi/Tornio, and Kittila. You can also arrive by train, bus, or car. Be aware though, train service does not extend much beyond Rovaniemi, and car travel can be dangerous in this remote area, especially during the hazardous conditions of an arctic winter.
