Romantic things to do in Lapland

With winter lasting about seven months long, and the temperature averaging from just a few degrees below zero to just above zero, you wouldn’t think Lapland is a great destination for a romantic getaway. But, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Lapland, Finland makes for an amazing romantic destination for couples. It boasts unmatched natural phenomena, blissful boarding options, and a variety of subarctic wilderness to marvel at.

The region also has a very small population, and isn’t packed with tourists. This means you won’t be in a crowd, and will have loads of private time with your significant other.

If this hasn’t sold you on Lapland, here are some romantic activities on offer that may win you over:

– Experience a night in a glass igloo village 

The Kakslauttanen Glass Igloo Village is one-in-a-million. You’ll spend a night in a luxurious glass igloo, gazing up at the stars in style. What could be more romantic?

Staying toasty warm while watching the snow fall around you is a unique experience you’ll never forget.

– Watch the Northern Lights 

One of the natural phenomena’s on many peoples bucket list is the Northern Lights. Not only is this phenomena incredible to marvel at, but it comes with its own folklore too. Some believe that the auroras have a favourable effect on fertility.

There are safari’s you can join which take you on a hunt for the auroras on snowmobiles, an adrenaline rush ending in a spectacular show from mother nature. It can’t get much better than that.
