Lapland is often called Europe's last wilderness, a region of endless forests, fells, and great silences. Settlers in Finnish Lapland walked gently and left the landscape almost unspoiled.

Fodor's local writers visit every hotel we recommend. Look for our discerning Fodor's Choice picks or search by price and location.
