Lapland, located in Finland's far north, is a popular winter destination for tourists thanks to its stunning natural beauty, ethereal Aurora Borealis, and Santa Claus. While many people have heard of how remarkable Lapland is in the winter, few realize that fall may perhaps be the ideal season to visit.
During autumn, their vast tundra takes on a palette of brilliant colors--from red to yellow to orange-- and almost the full shade of the rainbow. Plus, this season presents calmer conditions- milder weather and fewer tourists- making this time of year ideal for outdoor activities.
