Covid-19 & Travel to Lapland 

The Finnish Government has decided to extend travel restrictions until 17th of April 2021. A negative test result, proof of having previously had COVID-19 disease or a certificate of vaccination alone does not entitle a foreign national to enter Finland. Please take this into consideration if you plan to travel to Lapland in the near future and see guidelines of Finnish Border for more detailed information.

There are  local recommendations and restrictions on public life, including restaurants, amusement parks, recreational facilities and sports competitions that may affect opening hours and customer seats.

Are you ready to explore Finnish Lapland?

Welcome to the official travel website for Finnish Lapland, the home of Santa Claus, the last wilderness in Europe, and part of the Sámi homeland. Lapland is a destination above ordinary, full of contrasts and unique natural phenomena: Midnight Sun, Polar Nights, autumn colors, Northern Lights, and Arctic cites nestled among Ice Age fells.

If you’re looking for the frosty bite of a reindeer sleigh ride or the soft heat of a traditional sauna, you might be ready. If you want to explore the wilderness during a white summer night and meet Santa any time of year, you might be ready.

If you’re done with the ordinary, you might just be ready for Finnish Lapland.
