The Lapland Region of Sweden The Lapland Reserve (TheLaponianArea) is located in Norrbuda in the Arctic Circle in northern Sweden. It is known as the "Last Original Reserve in Europe" and the "Hometown of Santa Claus". The reserve starts from the center of Norbuda and extends westward along the mountains to the Norwegian border.
Around this huge protected area, the mountains covered with glaciers for many years straight into the sky. The weather here is fickle. It was cold in the morning while wearing an outdoor jacket in the light rain, and the sun stopped when the rain stopped at noon. Soon it was hot to wear a shirt. And the sun didn't set very late, it was amazing.
Lapland has always been a dream in my heart. In order to complete this dream, I spent almost a year of savings, but I think it is worth it. One's life is always worth going to this pure world. I just came back yesterday and fell asleep for a day. When I closed my eyes, my mind was full of white snow and every smile I encountered on the journey. I have to say that with this trip, I feel that my previous travel experience has become as light as a feather, churches, buildings, and places of interest. . . . . Maybe it’s because I watched more and became less impressed. But in this place of Northern Europe, the more you know, the more you love. Unpolluted paradise, pure white snow, ancient national culture, and the most natural things are the most precious and beautiful scenery. Perhaps the name Lapland is not well known to the public. She is located in Norway, Sweden, and Finland in northern Europe, and 3/4 of the area is within the Arctic Circle. This is the birthplace of countless myths and legends, and it is also the last reserve in Europe. The polar day, the polar night, the northern lights, the mottled lights and shadows take turns and never stop. Of course, she does not only bring you these lights and shadows, but the activities in the polar circle are rich and colorful. You can drive a husky sleigh across the forest and snowy fields, sit in a Sami tent while eating roasted venison while listening to the ancient legends told by the Sami. You can rush from the sauna room at 60 degrees into the icy world of minus 30 degrees. With a temperature difference of ten degrees, board the legendary Polar Express, go to the terminal to see the ice and snow fjords like ink paintings, visit Santa’s house on Ear Mountain, go fishing with reindeer skins on the lake in the national park, and drive a reindeer sleigh Chase the Northern Lights and take a train to catch the coldest and most northern outdoor market in the world. . . . . You can also have a drink in a bar made of ice and snow, or take a ride on the only icebreaker ship in the world that accepts tourists to float in the ice sea. . . . . All of these seem tempting to me, so I did not hesitate to pack up and uncover the mystery of Lapland.
Remember the magical Lapland in the cartoon "Nils Riding a Goose"? The most memorable sentence is "Your lifestyle is much better than ours." After reading it, I am very eager to go to Lapland, which is the last aboriginal settlement in Europe. Where is this Lapland? ? Lapland refers to the area north of the Arctic Circle, extending from Norway, Sweden, and northern Finland to the northwestern corner of Russia. It is known as "the last piece of pure land in Europe." The people who live in Lapland are the Lapps-they have lived on this pure land for thousands of years, but they call themselves Sami. Like the Inuit of Greenland, the Sami are the last indigenous people in Europe. In Sweden, there are between 15,000 and 25,000 Sami people. The traditional Sami herders live in wooden huts or thatched houses, and move their deer in units of 5 or 6 families. They rely on hunting and fishing to supplement food along the way. We came to Lapland in Sweden and lived in In the hut of the Sami people, every day they sit in a husky sleigh to fish on the frozen lake, and then collect wild fruits that fall in the forest. This is the long-awaited life on the ice field.
In Lapland in northern Finland, I drove hundreds of kilometers in the wild and finally saw the northern lights! The Finns used to call it "fox fire". When the aurora first appeared, it was usually not green, but rather grayish, like a long floating cloud in the sky. As the activity of the aurora becomes higher, it gradually becomes green light that can be observed with the naked eye, and it can be seen directly with the naked eye when it is strongest! So beautiful!
