2. Santa Claus Village

For a whimsical and magical proposal, visit Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, Lapland. Propose in the midst of Santa's winter wonderland, perhaps with a visit to Santa himself, or amidst the snowy forests surrounding the village.


3. Snow Castle of Kemi

The SnowCastle of Kemi, located in the town of Kemi in Finnish Lapland, is a magnificent snow and ice fortress that is rebuilt each winter. Proposing amidst the snow sculptures and icy halls of the SnowCastle can create a fairy-tale setting for your proposal.
