Lapland reindeer

no Santa Claus in Lapland yet but locals might tell you where he will be!

When you get to a destination that you’ve not visited before, where do you go for the best food or the attraction that is even hidden from the guide-books? Unless you know someone then chances are you will follow your instincts.

This won’t be the case if you holiday in the Finnish section of Lapland.

There, 16 locals from each area will be ‘on call’ to those considering or those having booked a holiday to the area.

The 16 locals will be reachable through www.onlyinlapland.com/meetthelocals/ where they have shared their tips, facts and basic information of their area of Lapland. As well as these local gems, the locals will be contactable via email, Skype, WhatsApp or Facebook for specific questions and queries.

Examples of these locals are Anssi Kiiskinen from Pyhä in central Lapland who is an expert in reindeer herding and fishing; Maaret Mattus from Inari-Saariselkä in northern Lapland who is knowledgable in hiking and camping and Sari Kumpuniemi from Ruka in eastern Finland who is the best local to speak to about skiing and ski instruction.

Hanna-Mari Talvensaari, the marketing director for Lapland – the North of Finland campaign comments; “Who has better knowledge of the Lappish winter than the locals? This winter visitors to Lapland will benefit from direct contact with native Laplanders to get the most authentic experience and a taste of real life in Lapland. We have a helpful and versatile group of locals who have the best insider knowledge waiting to meet you.”
