Finland, the land of enchanting wilderness, should be high on your list of destinations to travel to if you’re looking for a family adventure.

There are so many things to do in Finland with kids, you’ll come back from your family holiday with memories your little ones will talk about for years to come.

In this guide, I share some of the moments I will forever treasure from our family holiday in Lapland, so if you’re not sure what to do in Finland with kids, let these activities inspire you!

Visit The Real Santa Claus

At Santa Claus Village, you can see the workshop where the elves work, meet Mr and Mrs Claus, learn about elf life at Elf School, and go on reindeer sleigh rides.

Chase The Northern Lights

The Northern Lights usually appear around mid-August up until the beginning of April and can be seen on over 150 nights of the year.

Get Up Close With Reindeer

These gentle giants came out of the surrounding woodland at the call of our guide and we got to feed them by hand. All the while our guide explained about his long family history in the area and even showed us the sauna he was born in!

Have Fun With Huskies

No matter what time of year you choose to visit Finland, Husky rides are available and one of the best things to do in Finland with kids. If you think that because there is no snow your ride won’t be as exhilarating, think again.

Stay at A Unique Stay

Treat your kids to a unique stay at a snow hotel, or sleep under the stars in a glass igloo. Why should these unique stays only be for couples? Children will love them too!
