24 Reasons You Should Never Live in Lapland

Lapland, a region stretching across 4 countries, Norway, Finland, Sweden and Russia. Why ever would you want to go there?

It's not like the white snow glitters all the time

Or you'll walk across frozen rivers...

... in a town that's in both Sweden and Finland

You're really far from civilisation

And who would want to find cute cabins like these?

The locals are a bit hairier than where you're from

And the weather's a bit different, too.

Who'd want to be bothered by Santa and his elves?

Not forgetting his reindeer's

And who'd want to bump into The Big Man Himself in the pub & have a drink with him?!

Or you'll be intimidated meeting snowmen taller than you

Or even ones that are upside down

It's not like you'll have awesome sledding contests

Or you'll walk home with views like this

Or This

Or live somewhere with a backyard like this

Who'd want this street view? 

Or to live with people like these guys

Who'd want to go outside when its so cold your eyelashes (& hat) freeze?

Or work with an awesome team like this

No one wants to see the most northerly church in Sweden every day

Who'd want to see Polar Pink skies?

Or those gorgeous blue one?

Who'd want the chance to see the northern lights almost every day

I mean who would be this happy to be in Lapland?


  1. These photos are incredibly beautiful. I am not a cold weather person at all, but I sure love looking at the photos! Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you- the cold weather is incredible up there. I hate English cold!

  2. That's it. I have to go. I've always been drawn to cold cold places. Lapland sounds like a challenge worth taking.

  3. Aha clearly I should not live here ;) Nope! When can I move?

    1. Hahaha, apparently the Norwegian's need people to work there, I suggest looking in Tromso!

  4. Thank goodness. I was quite worried by that title. Great pictures - looks fabulous.

  5. After spending 5 months in Valkeakoski (small town close to Tampere) I can relate to most of these points, Finland is not the best place to live in ;)

  6. I just love Lapland ... can't wait to go back there one day!

  7. I don't think I'd like to live there, but I definitely want to visit! Much too cold for me, but I wouldn't mind for a little while.

    1. Whaaaat? You're Canadian? You lived in Hungary, it's cold there too!

  8. Those hairy locals are my kind of neighbours! Thanks for linking up with us for #SundayTraveler.

    1. Right, OMG, Sean sent me puppy pictures. my favourite is huge now, I'm so jealous that he's still there.

  9. It loos like Lapland has a lot to offer to i's guests! Thanks for the tips and pictures!
