The northernmost region of Finland, Lapland is a vast area of forests and fells situated inside the arctic circle. The area is home to the indigenous Sami people and a popular destination for winter tours. From reindeer-sleigh and husky-sled rides to snowmobile excursions, here are our tips for nature safaris in Lapland.
 
Husky Safaris
Riding a husky-drawn sleigh through Lapland’s forests and plains is a hugely popular experience, ideal for families with children who’ll love to snuggle in the blanket-lined sleds. Trips leave from all resorts and typically include a sled ride, drinks by the campfire, and time to meet the huskies—and possibly their puppies—as you learn about their care from the handlers. Some safaris also include the option to take turns driving and riding your sled with other passengers for extra excitement.
 
Reindeer Safaris
Taking a reindeer-pulled sleigh ride is not only the gentlest way to experience Lapland’s winter wonderland, it also offers an extra-special sprinkling of Christmas magic. Young children will associate the reindeer with Father Christmas, feel comfortable with their slower gait, and adore the cozy sleighs and sound of jingling reindeer bells. Typically morning affairs, trips leave from most Lapland resorts. What’s more, most include delightful extras such as hot berry juice, the chance to learn about the reindeer from traditionally costumed Sami herders, and souvenir international reindeer-driving licences for everyone to take home.
 
Snowmobile Safaris
Perfect for travelers wanting to up the tempo of their Lapland adventures, snowmobile safaris offer a range of formats and are available from most resorts. Options range from leisurely paced, family-oriented trips that let you drive a snowmobile to a reindeer farm for a reindeer-sleigh ride to full-throttle excursions to hunt down the Northern Lights. Ideal for thrill-seekers, these latter tours run in the evenings and let you zoom through the fells and pine woods along darkened trails. Most include a campfire stop to warm up with hot drinks and learn facts and legends about the mysterious lights.
