Lapland, in northern Finland, offers vacationers a true taste of winter. Powder snow, subzero temperatures and ice hotels can serve as a dream holiday for those looking for a unique getaway.
Finland became an independent nation exactly a century ago, facilitated by revolution in Russia. Now in the EU and the eurozone, but not in NATO, it's also a top performer in education, coffee consumption and motorsport.
Globetrotter Steve Hänisch and travel blogger Kristin Addis are in Finland’s northernmost region. They pay a visit to an ice hotel.
Tourists can explore Lapland’s wilderness on frozen Lake Inari while having their accommodation follow them around – a wooden cabin that's pulled along by a snowmobile.
