Finland's winter wonderland

For some truly memorable, frosty fun, Lappi (Lapland), a four-hour flight from Helsinki, serves up the perfect winter adventure. You can spend your day skating over the ice or watching reindeer or huskies run in the snow as they pull your sled. Spots like Kakslauttanen also offer day trips on the icebreaker Sampo as it clears the path through Bothnia Gulf. You can try your hand at ice fishing, or if you’re brave enough, even plunge into the freezing waters, followed by a nice hot sauna. And for the main attraction, prepare for midnight hunts for the aurora borealis (northern lights). They're very elusive, but still, you’ll probably manage to catch a glimpse of this surreal spectacle from your sleigh, snowmobile, or skis.
