Your Destination

Finland offers a huge variety of activities during the winter. Besides the traditional cross country and downhill skiing, there are exciting snowmobile rides, dog sledges and reindeer safaris for the more adventurous in this majestic destination. 

Rovaniemi is the capital of Lapland in northern Finland, and is known as the "official hometown of Santa Claus". Home to Santa Claus Village, a year-round Christmas themed attraction, this is heaven on earth for festive fanatics. Besides the Christmas festivities, Rovaniemi is also a great springboard from which to explore the Ranua Wildlife Park and the Arkitikum Science Museum.

You will also be able to observe the incredible spectacle of the Northern Lights that illuminate the sky of Finnish Lapland. Breathe in the purest air in Europe and dive into a country where 70% of the territory is covered with forest areas.

Please note that the advice can change, and you should continue to check all advice until you travel. 


Entry Requirements 

You must ensure you have a valid passport to travel on. 

If your passport describes you as a British Citizen, you do not need a visa to enter Finland. For non-British citizens, you should check the current entry requirements on the website of the Foreign Ministry and if necessary, confirm with the Finnish Embassy. 


Health
 

For information about important health advice and any vaccinations required please visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice and https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries

If vaccinations or other preventive measures are required, you will need to visit your health professional at least 8 weeks before your trip. In the event that you are referred to a medical facility for treatment, you should contact your insurance/medical assistance company immediately.

Brexit 

If you are travelling to the EU, the UK government recommends that you have six months left on your passport on the date of your arrival to an EU country. You should also check when your passport was renewed.

If you renewed a 10-year adult passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your passport’s expiry date. These extra months over 10 years will not count towards the 6 months that must be remaining. The UK Government has published a website tool to check the validity of your passport under these rules: https://www.passport.service.gov.uk/check-a-passport

You can renew your passport online or by going to a Post Office with a Check and Send service: https://www.gov.uk/renew-adult-passport/renew

If your passport does not meet the criteria for third-country nationals, you may be denied entry to any of the Schengen area countries.
