Covid-19 & Travel to Lapland
As of September 19, Finland is relaxing some border controls due to changing situations with coronavirus in other countries. However, travelers from countries with more than 25 coronavirus cases per 100,000 inhabitants will be required to take a coronavirus test within 3 days of arriving in Finland. Please take this into consideration if you plan to travel to Lapland in the near future.
The restrictions on public life, including restaurants, amusement parks, recreational facilities and sports competitions lifted on June 1 remain unaffected, though there are still limits in place.
