A Honeymoon Away From It All: Lapland

Whether Swedish or Finnish, a trip to Lapland makes for a unique honeymoon destination. Here, traditional turquoise lagoons give way to frozen lakes, jet ski rides and dog sledding.

Imagine renting a cozy log cabin in the middle of beautiful natural surroundings, away from civilisation, and falling asleep at night next to the roaring log fire while the aurora borealis glows outside your window. The feeling of being cut off from the world, the unique light of the North and the plentiful winter activities will make sure your honeymoon remains a special memory to cherish forever.
