Spanning the northernmost fringes of Norway, Sweden and Finland, Lapland offers exciting winter and summer adventures. Take in the indigenous Sami culture, experience a husky safari or snorkel alongside killer whales. Scandinavia enthusiast James Proctor leads visitors across magical frozen scenery, from the world-famous ICEHOTEL and the stunning Laponia World Heritage area to the Arctic's midnight sun - 24-hours of unbroken sunlight. Whether on an organised tour or travelling independently, Bradt's Lapland is the essential travel companion. Now in its second edition, it's the only guidebook to this wintry wonderland. James Proctor is a freelance travel writer and author of several guides to Scandinavia including Bradt's Faroe Islands. He divides his time between the South of France and his log cabin in the heart of the Swedish forest.
