Dulcinea's Insight

  • Lapland, Finland’s northernmost province, is part of the Sapmi nation, which also covers parts of Norway, Sweden, and Russia. Some links will reference travel sights in Sapmi; bear in mind that some of these sights may not be in Finland.
  • If you do your own search for travel in Finland and Finnish-language sites, look for a small British Union Jack, usually on the top right of the page. Clicking this will direct you to the English-language version of the site.
