Today, our family-travel expert, Adriana, shares her trip to the Arctic Circle in Rovaniemi, in Finnish Lapland, filled with plenty of winter family fun and a special visit to Santa Claus.
We visited Helsinki very early on in our European life. Unlike many city-trips, where we are only able to visit for a few days, we spent over a week in the Finnish capital. We were immediately struck by how similar the landscape is to our Canadian home in Halifax. The rocky coast and abundance of green space reminded us of what we had been missing in Brussels.
In this section, you’ll also find one of our favourite guest posts by our contributor Adriana. She and her family went way up North in search of Santa Claus in Lapland. We’re eager to explore this part of the country for ourselves (although Alison will have to pack her hot water bottle!)
