Lapland, located in the north of Finland, is the country’s largest region. It is located in the northeast of the Baltic Sea, above the Arctic Circle. Northern Lights, known for its reindeer and husky dogs, is also one of the destinations that has increased in popularity recently. Lapland can be quite cold due to its proximity to the poles, but due to its dry climate, it does not feel as painfully cold as in humid regions.
