An Authentic Lappish Experience in Finland

The “Fell’s Tale” is an offbeat Lapland itinerary for seasoned travellers seeking unique and authentic Lappish experiences. Set during one of the most iconic of Finnish natural phenomena, the Midnight Sun, you will experience the “Nightless nights” in Lapland, one of the most spectacular times of the year when the sun does not set and could be seen visible around the clock  – the best time for a nocturnal swim and sauna.
