Deep inside northern Finnish Lapland
Not far from the border with Sweden and Norway, Enontekio is a winter wonderland in every sense. Step out of the plane and you’ll instantly know you’re inside the Arctic Circle. With 200 days of winter and average temperatures as low as -14 Celsius in January, it means guaranteed snow between October and, incredibly, May. Sleigh and skidoo riding, encounters with Santa and snowball fights are all obligatory.
