Cheap flights to Lapland

The Finnish region of Lapland is a true winter wonderland. Deep in the Arctic Circle, ice and snow cover the sprawling forests and shimmering lakes. During the long Arctic nights you can catch a glimpse of the eerie Northern lights, while summer offers the perfect opportunity to experience the midnight sun. Lapland is a land of magic and mystery, so it’s no surprise that Santa Claus lives there. During December many families fly to Lapland to visit Santa Claus at home. Demand is high, so if you’re planning to visit during the festive season it’s worth booking your flights well in advance.
