Accessibility: Lapland within reach

Reaching the Alps can take longer than getting to Lapland. Kittilä Airport is really close to Levi and Ylläs.

New flights to Rovaniemi, Kittilä and Ivalo bring in international tourists from airports around Europe, including London, Zurich and Paris. It might surprise you, but reaching the Alps can take longer than getting to Lapland, where the magic of snow, skiing and the Northern Lights await you.

Since Helsinki is a major hub for Asian flight, Finnair also has nonstop connections to five cities in mainland China as well as Hong Kong. This gives Chinese travellers a chance to reach Ivalo, an exotic destination well above the Arctic Circle, with a single stop on the way.

The infrastructure and services up north will not let you down either. Rail, coach and taxi services run every day of the year, regardless of weather conditions. The roads in Lapland are safe and well-maintained, so all you need to worry about is watching the scenery.
