Santa's Homeland

Lapland, a region of Fenno-Scandinavia that lies mostly within the Arctic Circle, is where tourists go to find Santa Claus, reindeer, dog sledding, skiing, the Northern Lights, and unbelievable scenery. In this post, it's easy to see why Santa Claus wants to live in Lapland -I fell in love with the place just from the author's charming use of English!
A more traditional mode of travel – dog sledding. Here management is not so elementary, because dogs often have their own ideas about the itinerary and you do not have a lot of ways to persuade them to move in the right direction. So it will take all possible strength and agility, but it only makes the trip more interesting.

I read about the bad experiences that British tourists had had in Finnish Lapland a few weeks back. The particular holiday village was owned by a British travel company, as are most of the hotels and cottages that serve the UK, German, French, US, etc. tourists visiting Lapland. Myself I don't have any experiences or insight about the condition of such lodgings, for I have always tried to find accommodation owned by the locals when visiting Lapland. Personally I have never had anything to complain about. I encourage everyone who's thinking about taking a trip to Lapland to use the services provided by local entrepreneurs. After all they are the ones on whose culture your trip is based on. They can lay much more insight to the surroundings and the way of life than any foreign guide.
