1. Finnish Lapland: No amount of pictures can do justice to the spectacular display of nature called Northern Lights. Lapland is the best location to see nature’s spectacular displays. You can commonly sight the multicolored light show in the Arctic regions. Lapland has a special appeal to families since you can combine the search for Northern lights with a visit to reindeer farm, snowshoeing, skiing and snowmobile safaris.How to reach: The best way to reach Finland would be through its capital city Helsinki. Finnair has a direct flight to Helsinki from Delhi and within 7 hours you can be in Finland.Do not miss: The Northern Lights
The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is a celestial spectacle that you must see as no amount of pictures, words or stories can do justice to it. I accomplished this goal in November 2015 across the Arctic Circle in Finland and Norway where I saw the Northern Lights dance and perform for 3 nights in a row. You can read about the whole trip here.
13. Finland- Lapland. If a week in the remote interiors of Lapland's unspoiled beauty doesn't move you, you're probably dead already.
Lapland, also known as the North of Finland is a surreal destination. A winter wonderland like no other, summers in this area play host to 24 hours of sunlight while the cold months are enveloped in perpetual darkness. For those who intend to witness the magical Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) from the comforts of their chalet and perhaps even say hello to the real Santa Claus and his reindeers, Lapland is the ideal escape. It also is a great place to indulge in some digital detox as WiFi, albeit available, can be intermittent as the population density of this region is exceptionally low.
