But it's not all snow, you can try hiking or just enjoying the lake during the summer . Here are five things every traveler must do when visiting Lapland, Finland.

Ice-swimming

According to Lonely Planet, the Sampo offers a four-hour cruise with meals and reindeer visits through snowmobiles. To complete the experience, tourists get a chance to swim in the thick ice with the use of special drysuits.

Husky Tours

Another experience is to visit one of Lapland's husky farms and avail this somehow pricey but worthwile excursion.  It's a chance to be pulled by expertly trained dogs for an hour and a half ride. Make sure to take lots of pictures especially when you're taking control of the sleigh.

Ice fishing

Mirror reported that Northern Finland's lakes are the perfect spot to catch local fishes such as the Arctic Char. Their three to five-hour tour includes ice fishing complete with hot dogs and hot drinks on the side. What can be more relaxing than that?

Reindeer rides

Lapland is blessed with a vast number of reindeer farms.  Nothing completes a reindeer experience than a chance to visit the farm itself. Guests can also avail a five-year certificate to drive a reindeer sleigh in any part of the world.

Tobongganing

To complete the authentic Lapland experience, one must try Europe's longest toboggan run. Be courageous to take the long walk up and then have the most memorable ride sliding down.
