An introduction to Animals & Wildlife activities in Lapland

You may not believe us, but Lapland has a wide variety of fascinating wildlife. These range from Brown bear (who sleep all winter) and those species that favour the cold such as Arctic foxes and lynxes; and of course herds of reindeer and families of moose. If you’re heading to the coast, then whales including the iconic Orca (killer whales), seals, sea birds and some of the best fish and seafood can be found. 

A guide to Animals & Wildlife Activities in Lapland

Dog Sledding activities in Lapland

For anyone booking a northern lights holiday, or Arctic vacation, dog sledding activities are high on the to do list! Whether learning to drive your own dog sled, or sitting back and letting your guide do the work as you watch the Arctic wilderness glide by – it is a must do activity for any winter arctic holiday. The best time to book is between December and March, however some of our providers vary.


Reindeer sledding activities in Lapland

Some say there are as many reindeer in Lapland as people. With their trademark antlers there is no more iconic symbol of Lapland than Reindeer. A traditional experience to add to your trip to Lapland is to book onto one of our Reindeer Sledding activities. Just as you might expect, the reindeer make a perfect engine to pull the sled through the arctic wilderness – and although there are some in Lapland who race reindeer sleds at high speed – the reindeer sledding activities we have for you are much more relaxing.
