Post by annefloor » Tue Jan 05, 2016 10:17 pm

Hi, In February ( 10-18 ), we are in Finland, Lapland. Does anybody have information about winter markets or local markets for us, even tips for events and special local activities are very welcome. Does anyone even have hints for 2nd-hand goods / retail shops/places. We have a car, so every tip in lapland is very welcome. Thanks!!! :wink: kind regards Anne

Whereabouts in Lapland? It's vast and you won't be driving 300km in February to go shopping.
Somehow I never associated Lapland with markets, shopping and stuff like that but I'm pretty sure you will find handicrafts etc for sale in the main tourist centres. What kind of secondhand stuff are you looking for?

Hi, thanks for your response, o no, shopping is not the purpose, we go especially for the northern lights and the nature and the animals, but we like to shoot photogenic places and go especially to small local events along. Such as a 2nd hand market , which is organized once, or an performance of a village choir , a concert at a library , things for the residents in Finland , to sample some of the atmosphere . There are many tourist activities that we know , but exactly what the everyday things among the people we like, and there are probably not very many and hard to find, but it 's nice to trace .
