My father and I (I am 30 years old) are making a trip to Finland this September 13 - 27 because we are Finnish Americans but have never visited before. We will be spending 5 days in Lapland but I am having trouble choosing a village/town to stay...looking into Inari, Saariselka, Nellim....we want nature and activities and (hopefully) some NL sightings! We'd love to go berry picking or hang out by a lake and meet some reindeer and/or huskies.
Because we will NOT have a car, I want to find a place that is in a good location for exploring but not extremely isolated (we want to be social with others on our trip).
This will probably be our only visit to the country together, so I want it to be as great as possible. Any specific advice would be very much appreciated.
