TIPS FOR YOUR TRIP

How to prepare your trip to Lapland

… in winter

Winter in Lapland is quite demanding for the body. Thus we recommend you to make sure you are in a good physical condition when you come here. Walking, riding, playing outside by temperatures that can be from -10 to -30 Celsius degrees and with heavy clothes on: your heart needs to be prepared!
Children must absolutely be well dressed and they might not always be able to stay the whole day outside if the temperatures are really low.

… in summer

In summer the temperature is usually really nice here, from 15 to 25 Celsius degrees in average. You should still be prepared for all kind of weather: strong sun, wind, rain…

From June to mid-August, the insects are out! When in the forest, you have to be prepared for a few mosquito bites.

Nothing that long sleeves and repellant can prevent!
