Traditional Christmas Market

Rovaniemi, Finland

Winter is a magical time to visit Finland and the traditional Christmas markets make this time of year especially festive. Finns love to celebrate the holiday season. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, beginning with pikkujoulu or Little Christmas in early December, the atmosphere is exuberant. Markets bustle with activity and are lit up at night, offering an abundance of unique gifts, delicious food and hot glögi (Finnish mulled wine) to take the chill out of the air. Experience some wonderful Yuletide cheer and shop the markets for high-quality handmade goods, Finnish design and edible seasonal treats.
