The Nordic region is the home of cross-country skiing, so it’s no surprise that Finnish Lapland is one of the best places in Europe for cross-country skiing holidays. Cross-country skiing is the winter sport of choice for many Finns, who enjoy a chance to get outdoors at all times of the year. It really is a sport for everyone, and you’ll find extensive kilometres of well-maintained cross-country ski trails in every resort that are being used by skiers of all ages and ability, from toddlers to grandparents and beginners to athletes.
