From Finnish Lapland you can encounter absolutely all sorts; not least Rudolph, elves and Father Christmas himself. Guided by his elves, venture into the forests to find him in his hideaway. Make gingerbread with Mrs Claus before meeting the man himself. He will patiently listen to your Christmas wishes before returning to your own festive retreat with no further questions on his existence.
Of course, having travelled so far you will be looking for things to do when you are not with Father Christmas. Learn how the locals survive the harsh winter environments with some wilderness skills and try and stay awake after a feast of local delicacies in case the Northern Lights appear. Hop in the reindeer sleigh or husky sledge, a local means of traversing the winter landscapes. Tackle up and wait patiently to catch a fish, plated up for your supper if you are very lucky.
