    Geographical influences

    Tucked away in the northernmost region of Finland, Lapland has a cold subarctic climate that has some continental influences throughout the year. Winters are very snowy but there’s also a good deal of sunshine, so you’ll have plenty of sunlight to explore the snowy landscapes and meet Father Christmas with the kids. Some of the regions expand to the inside of the Arctic Circle, which means harsh and colder weather conditions are experienced often. It’s one of the coldest months of the year, but it’s slightly milder than nearby regions on the same latitude due to the warming effect of the Atlantic Ocean.


    Remember to pack lots of clothes from your winter wardrobe in January, which has a lot of snow and freezing temperatures all month. Winds are around 6mph and the humidity levels are very high, often reaching up to 93%. There’s not much rain in winter, with just 40mm of rainfall over the month.
