Finland: A Land of Magical Wonder
Contributed by Hazian
We are living in unusual conditions where an global pandemic has broken out across the world. Most borders are closed, flights grounded, tours cancelled, hotels closed and we are all home bound. A situation that no one has ever imagined. While most of us has had to put our travels on hold for a while due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we must remain hopeful and stay positive, keeping our dream destination at the forefront. Once this is over, I dream and would love to travel to Finland, a place that I have always been fascinated with, especially Lapland.
I would like to visit during winter, for a chance to see the Northern Lights and also to experience winter activities. Although summer is also good season to experience the Midnight Sun, for a 24-hours of sun light when the sun never sets.
The northern most part of Finland, Lapland, is the magical arctic region full of contrasts. With its snowy landscapes, it is the home of reindeer, Santa Claus and the Northern Lights. I would love to experience reindeer sleigh ride, dog sledding, snowmobiling and of course, watch the Northern Lights dance – everyone’s bucket list!
Finland is the place to meet Santa Claus and Rovaniemi is the Official Hometown of Santa Claus in Lapland. So, I would love to meet him at Santa’s official office, situated on the mysterious Arctic Circle, which is open to each and everyone. Other than that, I would also love to experience the unique culture of the Sámi – the only indigenous people of the European Union.
Now with us stuck at home, this is the best time to research up and plan for that dream trip as we wait for the borders to open up once more. The world is waiting. Let's be ready for it.
