Lapland: Finland's snowy adrenaline-pumping action, sans Santa - TNT Magazine | Snowmobiling Fun Facts |

Say Lapland, and all you hear is Santa, Santa, Santa. You could be forgiven for thinking it’s all family breaks and overcharging for children to sit on a stranger’s knee. But whether it’s before Christmas or after Mr Claus hangs up his red suit for the year, there’s far more to discover in northernmost Finland. And most of it’s guaranteed to get your pulse racing.

Which is why I rock up to Lapland with one thing in mind: action. I’ve got a tick-list of things to try: there’s adrenaline-fuelled snowmobiling through the countryside, ice karting – think kamikaze go-karting – plus skiing and snowboarding on the guaranteed powder between November and April.
