Finnair in to one of the Finnish cities. What are the options of making some regional flights?
There are several airports in the Finnish Lapland, all connected to HEL
. In winter Lapland gets a lot of tourists, especially the ski resorts offer a lot of services: ski sports, snow mobiles, husky rides, reindeer safaris... Lapland isn't cheap, better avoid the peak seasons. Traditionally January is a silent time, but it can get really cold then and not much sun light available. I would travel there around March/April, still full winter but sun would be back, less cold, possible to find ok prices, except around Easter. February is the local winter holiday season, so I would avoid that.
Often the cheapest way to fly from HEL
to Lapland is Norwegian, they fly to RVN
. I just checked the prices for next spring, looks like from 38e one way, the flying time is around 1,5h. RVN
is the capital of Lapland, KTT
has a large ski resort, IVL
is the northernmost airport.
Naturally Finnair serve Lapland (even widebodies occasionally), their partner FlyBe Nordic have a couple of destinations in north. Blue1 (SASFinland) serves KTT
only, there seems to be an AMS-CPH-KTT connection on SAS/Blue1 (B717) if you want to skip HEL. You can take a train but it's a looong ride, the new sleeping cabins are quite cool though.
To get to northern Norway from northern Finland isn't easy by air, you may have to fly through OSL.
